Natural home remedies for PMS xxx

January 4, 2017

I don’t know about you but people seem to keep quite a significant distance from me when I am pre-menstrual!! My partner tends to just throw sweets at me (“dragon food”) and run!

 

So this is definitely a subject close to my heart! We have to deal with this issue every month and lets be honest most of us don’t have or cannot afford the time to just mope about feeling horrible.

We just want to get on with life, preferably without shouting at the computer, car, children, dog in the process.

 

Luckily there are some natural ways we can help keep ourselves feeling the best we can.

 

Joannah Metcalfe, a consultant aromatherapist at baseformula.com , tell us:

 

“Aromatherapy essential oils can be extremely beneficial in treating PMS. As well as helping to balance your hormones and lift your mood, they can also help relieve painful periods and water retention. It is best to see a qualified aromatherapist who will prescribe a blend of oils to suit your particular needs, but if you’d like to try some at home remedies, I’d recommend the following blends:

 

  • To balance hormones, lift your mood and help with fluid retention, mix 6 drops lavender, 4 geranium, 3 bergamot and 2 clary sage with 15ml of fragrance-free bath oil (or full fat milk) and add to bathwater.

  • For painful periods mix 5 drops each of clary sage, marjoram and lavender – this formula can be added to a cup of Dead Sea salt for the bath, mixed with 10ml St John’s wort oil and 20 ml sweet almond oil for topical massage, or added to 1 litre of hot water to make a warm compress. Do this by immersing a clean cloth in the solution, wringing dry and applying to the lower back and tummy.

 

 

Why not give it a try?

Your loved ones may thank you for it!!

 

Lots of love and kind regards,
