Essence Protocol of the Week: The Reproductive System and Menopause/Manopause...

It's June, and the reproductive system is highlighted all month long. This week, we are looking at plants that help with menopause in women and manopause in men. Our favorite three essences that support a healthy menopause/manopause are Evening Primrose, Davana, and Clary Sage.

Menopause in women begins with a 12-month stop in menstruation cycles. Symptoms experienced are hot flashes, vaginal dryness, depression, and anxiety. Some women can regulate symptoms on their own, while others need to seek oral medications or cream hormone therapies to balance these symptoms, and essential oils can help with both situations. Louise Hay connects the fear of no longer being wanted with this time in a woman's life. It is all about feeling balanced, peaceful, and Loved. Old anger and resistance to new circumstances keep us in a protective state. This can lead to long-standing emotional issues that are left unresolved. Menopause/Manopause may begin at this point in our journey. Sometimes trauma or PTSD can move us into this time of our lives, and it is in healing that inner child that we can find our balance once again.

Evening Primrose is helpful for symptoms of menopause. While it will not stop the natural process of change, it will support the symptoms and side effects that come with this condition. Evening Primrose is especially helpful for hot flashes. This amazing plant helps with depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues.

Davana is an amazing healer of all women's needs. She is the ultimate goddess of the plants. Davana helps with the symptoms of menopause, like hot flashes, insomnia, cramping, and aphrodisiac attributes that support vaginal harmony. Energetically, she is great for anxiety, anger, fear, and negativity. She allows the being to feel open to owning their power, and strength in knowing that the future holds the destiny to one's life purpose.

Clary Sage is an estrogen and hormone balancer. She is a wonderful ally when going through peri-menopausal and menopause symptoms like hot flashes, anxiety, insomnia, and hormone irregularities. The natural phytoestrogens in this plant support endocrine harmony and the health of the uterus. Hormone imbalances cause insomnia, high cortisol levels, and unrest. Clary Sage helps with all of these things. Clary Sage helps with depression, self-Love, and inspiration.

Together, these three plants work to support this amazing transitional time in a woman's life. It is best to use essences for one month for every year you have had the symptoms that are being treated. In general, for the average adult weight and height, five to ten drops "neat" on the skin is enough to start anointing each essence 2-3 times a day. Always do a test patch on the inner arm to make sure that the essences are not too powerful to anoint "neat" on your skin. If they bring up a healing response, then use the bottoms of the feet to anoint, and meditate on what is coming up and out emotionally for healing. All three essences are safe to anoint directly onto the lower abdomen and lower back. These plants work well together, and can help to restore harmony and balance. Anoint Davana, then Clary Sage, and Evening Primrose last. All essences are safe to ingest in small amounts, and actually, Evening Primrose can be taken in capsules daily. Use your intuition to guide the way, and remember that less is always more.
