Essential oils for Low Libido

If you are struggling with low libido, the first thing to understand is that you are not alone. For men, low libido often culminates in erectile dysfunction, which ranges in prevalence from 5% in younger men to 25% in men over 65. In women, low libido is common in all stages of life thanks to fluctuating hormones.

Having a low libido periodically or chronically is nothing to be ashamed of. Bringing your concerns into the open can start the path toward health, intimacy, and resolution.

Low Libido Causes

Causes of low libido vary from person to person and range from lifestyle influences to serious disorders. Some of the most prevalent factors include:

  • Stress – One of the most basic yet most difficult causes of low libido to fix, simply being stressed out and overtired can put a damper on the mood. Stress over relationship issues such as raising the kids, money, and house concerns, can lead to lack of intimacy and hinder libido as well. Most stress can be relieved with simple lifestyle changes.
  • Alcohol – An often overlooked cause of sexual dysfunction, alcohol can be a stressor of its own. While contemporary advice says to utilise alcohol to just relax, it could have the opposite effect and ruin efforts toward libido increase.
  • Hormones – Here’s where it gets complicated. The body’s network of hormone responses create long-term messages for the body to respond to. So they aren’t quick to fix. Hormones are connected to causes like stress, ageing, disease, and menstrual, pregnancy, and menopause related libido issues. When hormones are at the root of libido issues, expect change to come progressively over time.
  • Illness – Physical stressors on the body – such as obesity, heart health, and other illness – can hinder sexual desire and response, as well. When an illness or condition is at the root of low libido, working with a doctor is important.

As gentle and relaxing aromas, these oils can be used in diffusions, sprays, topical applications and more. Get creative to see how you can boost libido by incorporating these essential oils into both your daily life and romantic life.

1. Rose

As an anxiety-relieving, calming oil, it comes as no surprise that rose essential oil is also traditionally used as an aphrodisiac. As a pricey oil, though, rose is most efficiently used in blends or heavy dilutions.

Application: Blend into a perfume to carry this romantic floral scent with you, or diffuse periodically throughout the day for both partners to enjoy.

2. Jasmine

A precious and pricey oil derived from delicate flower petals, jasmine has proven itself well in studies. Researchers tested alertness and “behavioral arousal” after a topical treatment of jasmine oil. Of course, the participants were found to be more refreshed, with their senses on alert.

Application: Apply jasmine topically in a perfume or sensual massage oil for men and women. Note that the delicate petals sometimes require the use of a solvent to extract the oil. Check labels carefully, especially for an organic certification.

3. Clary Sage

A 2014 study undertook the question of menopause symptom relief and essential oils. The found that simply inhaling hormone-balancing clary sage essential oil had an anti-depressant effect on menopausal women. When libido is low due to hormonal shifts like menopause, clary sage is a balancer that may bring some relief.

Application: Diffuse or inhale periodically to relax, balance hormones, and get in the mood.

4. Ylang Ylang

Ylang ylang is widely used as an aphrodisiac throughout the aromatherapy world. Its gentle floral scent is appealing to nearly everyone, and its application potential is diverse. Enjoy with other floral oils or deepen the fragrance with sandalwood.

Application: Diffusion, inhalation, or diluted into a carrier oil as a massage oil for both men and women.

5. Neroli

Essential oil derived from orange blossoms instead of the fruit’s peel is called neroli, a precious and very useful oil. In one clinical trial, researchers found that “inhalation of neroli oil helps relieve menopausal symptoms, increase sexual desire, and reduce blood pressure in postmenopausal women,” making it another helpful option when libido is low due to hormones or stress.

Application: Diffusion or inhalation a couple of times each day for calming, balancing effects.

6. Fennel

As a whole herb, “Fennel seeds have been reputed to increase milk secretion, promote menstruation, facilitate birth and alleviate the symptoms of the female climacteric, increase libido and alleviation of the dysmenorrheal symptoms.” Fennel essential oil retains some of these estrogenic effects, making it a beneficial addition to your libido-increasing, hormone-balancing diffusion or massage blends.

For any hormone issue our recommended Blend is a Roll on Clary Calm!

There is always an oil

Men and women of all ages have faced low libido and have found hope and renewal. There is no shame in admitting the struggle and seeking a solution! As a bonus, openness and partnership in finding a remedy or resolution as a couple will help to increase intimacy, as well.

To relieve the stresses of everyday life, boost libido and begin to ignite a spark with your significant other, try this DIY libido boosting blend diffused or diluted into a carrier oil (almond or coconut are excellent!) for a soothing massage. Simply blend:

  • 2 drops neroli (or wild orange)
  • 2 drops jasmine
  • 2 drops ylang ylang

Directly into a diffuser (or inhaler, with one drop each) or into a tablespoon or two of the carrier oil of your choice.

essential oils for PCOS

Essential oils for PCOS

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition that affects how a woman’s ovaries work.

The 3 main features of PCOS are:

  • irregular periods – which means your ovaries do not regularly release eggs (ovulation)
  • excess androgen – high levels of “male” hormones in your body, which may cause physical signs such as excess facial or body hair
  • polycystic ovaries – your ovaries become enlarged and contain many fluid-filled sacs (follicles) that surround the eggs (but despite the name, you do not actually have cysts if you have PCOS)

If you have at least 2 of these features, you may be diagnosed with PCOS.

Polycystic ovaries

Polycystic ovaries contain a large number of harmless follicles that are up to 8mm (approximately 0.3in) in size. 

The follicles are underdeveloped sacs in which eggs develop. In PCOS, these sacs are often unable to release an egg, which means ovulation does not take place.

It’s difficult to know exactly how many women have PCOS, but it’s thought to be very common, affecting about 1 in every 10 women in the UK.

More than half of these women do not have any symptoms.

Symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

If you have signs and symptoms of PCOS, they’ll usually become apparent during your late teens or early 20s.

They can include:

  • irregular periods or no periods at all
  • difficulty getting pregnant as a result of irregular ovulation or failure to ovulate
  • excessive hair growth (hirsutism) – usually on the face, chest, back or buttocks
  • weight gain
  • thinning hair and hair loss from the head
  • oily skin or acne

PCOS is also associated with an increased risk of developing health problems in later life, such as type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol levels.

What causes polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)?

The exact cause of PCOS is unknown, but it often runs in families.

It’s related to abnormal hormone levels in the body, including high levels of insulin.

Insulin is a hormone that controls sugar levels in the body.

Many women with PCOS are resistant to the action of insulin in their body and produce higher levels of insulin to overcome this.

This contributes to the increased production and activity of hormones like testosterone.

Being overweight or obese also increases the amount of insulin your body produces.

Treating polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

There’s no cure for PCOS, but the symptoms can be treated. Speak to a GP if you think you may have the condition.

If you have PCOS and you’re overweight, losing weight and eating a healthy, balanced diet can make some symptoms better.

Medicines are also available to treat symptoms such as excessive hair growth, irregular periods and fertility problems.

If fertility medicines are not effective, a simple surgical procedure called laparoscopic ovarian drilling (LOD) may be recommended.

This involves using heat or a laser to destroy the tissue in the ovaries that’s producing androgens, such as testosterone.

With treatment, most women with PCOS are able to get pregnant.

What is the best way to use essential oils for PCOS?

Diffusion– For many oils, diffusion is the most effective method. It can be accomplished in a variety of ways including simply opening a bottle, using a vaporiser or diffuser (check manufacturer instructions) or a warmer.

Topical– In this method, essential oils are applied directly to the skin. Usually, oils are diluted in a carrier oil, but some may be used “neat.” fractionated coconut oil or roller ball bottles are popular methods of application. Many women have success using the topical method in conjunction with reflexology.

Ingestion– Some very specific oils can be ingested, but if you choose this option, proceed with extreme caution and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

So, what are the best essential oils for PCOS?

Clary Sage

This is one of the best all-around oils for PCOS. Clary sage fights acne, relieves anxiety, depression and stress, and boost hair growth. Importantly, it also works toward hormone balance and fertility.  

Geranium

Geranium stimulates the adrenal cortex, helping to balance emotions, alleviate anxiety & depression and improve focus. It is particularly good for balancing hormones, improving fertility, and increasing progesterone.  Geranium even helps balance out the oils in your skin for help fighting acne!

Ylang Ylang

One of the oldest applications of ylang ylang is as an antidepressant. It works to balance your cortisol & adrenals (reducing stress) as well as to promote emotional balance. As an added bonus, women with PCOS often see improvements in fertility and hair growth.           

Frankincense Essential Oil

Frankinsense Oil

Frankincense Essential Oil is another essential oil which is invaluable for both men and women.

It is an Adrenal Adaptogen, which helps to calibrate the stress response in both men and women, helping to restore us to a state of homeostasis.

Ceaderwood

Who doesn’t love the smell of Ceaderwood? Good news! Ceaderwood can help reduce insulin resistance (support blood sugar balance) and even help you lose weight.  

Lavender

Lavender is one of the most popular essential oils for good reason. While it is best known for promoting relaxation and relieving stress, it can also help bring emotional balance and reduce anxiety and depression. That makes it a home run for the whole family! If that isn’t enough, women with PCOS can see added benefits including reduction in hirsutism (unwanted hair), hair growth, hormone balance, and improvement in acne.

Melaleuca

A Natural anti biotic and anti inflammatory for Blemishes and skin irritations.

Bergamot

Just a wonderful Uplifting citrus to help lift feelings of low mood and energy levels a real feel good oil.

Essential oils and Chakra Balancing

Using Essential Oils To Balance Your Chakras

“Chakra”, which is the Sanskrit word for “wheel”, refers to seven site specific concentrations of energy emanating from the body. Each of these Chakra centres govern its own expression of associated bodily, emotional and spiritual energy, yet each are linked and in tune with all the others.

When one or more of the chakras is over- or under-expressing its associated energy, itmanifests as an imbalance in the body, mind and spirit. When all of the chakras are balanced in their expression, then the physical, mental and spiritual well being is manifested.

Essential Oils Promotes Chakra Balancing

Within the practice of aromatherapy, the influence that aromatic plant essential oils have on the body, mind and spirit, can be adapted to promote greater balanced chakra functioning. By applying essential oils one can either activate and energize sluggish chakra functions or calm and quieten over-active ones. Balancing oils are good candidates for maintaining support of well-regulated chakras.

A combination of both activating and calming oils will tend to have an overall balancing and supportive benefit to the chakras. Here are a few suggestions to get you started.

Root Chakra – (Nutmeg / Cloves / Patchouli / Vetiver / Bergamot) A foot massage is a great way to balance the root chakra which regulates your sense of groundedness and stability. Nutmeg will activate a sluggish root chakra, while patchouli and vetiver calm an over active one. Choose a balancing essential oil such as bergamot to help maintain a smoothly functioning root chakra.

Sacral Chakra – (Cardomom / Orange / Ylang Ylang / Neroli / Bergamot / Sweet Orange / Sandalwood) The sacral chakra, which influences your sensuality, benefits from a lower back massage. Spicy cardamon essential oil awakens a dormant sacral chakra, while ylang ylang and neroli calm . Look to sweet orange and sandalwood to maintain a well functioning sacral chakra.

Solar Plexus Chakra – (Chamomile / Eucalyptus / Juniper Berry / Vetiver / Helichrysum / Citrus Bliss / Grapedruit / Lemon) A gentle tummy massage influences the functioning of the solar plexus chakra which influences your gut instincts. Apply eucalyptus and juniper berry to activate the solar plexus, and vetiver or helichrysum to calm an over active one. Good balancing oils to apply to an already well expressed solar plexus chakra are citrus bliss, grapefruit and lemon.

Heart Chakra – (Palmarossa / Lavender / Sweet Marjoram / Geranium / Rose)

The emotional centre that is the heart chakra readily benefits from a supportive perfumed annointing oil, applied to the breast bone or massaged into the middle back area. Palmarossa essential oil will open the heart chakra, while lavender and sweet marjoram will quieten it down. Try regular applications of geranium or rose essential oil to maintain a well functioning heart chakra.

Throat Chakra – (Lemon / Lavender / Roman Chamomile / Vanilla / Coriander Seed / Ginger) A body spray applied to chest and neck areas is an efficient way to influence the functioning of the throat chakra which influences your expressiveness and communication. Turn to lemon essential oil to open a sluggish throat chakra, and vanilla or Roman chamomile to calm. Coriander seed and ginger are balancing oils to maintain the even expression of the throat chakra.

Third Eye Chakra – (Rosemary / Clary Sage / German Chamomile / Frankincense / Sandalwood) The visionary, awareness supporting third eye chakra can be influenced with an anointing oil applied to the forehead or through simple diffusion and inhalation. Rosemary and Clary Sage essential oils will open a sleeping third eye chakra, while German chamomile will stabilize and focus this visionary chakra. Frankincense or sandalwood are good choices to maintain a clear and balanced third eye chakra.

Crown Chakra – (Lavender / Neroli / Vanilla / Frankincense) A room diffusion applied to the airspace around you is the best way to balance the transcendent crown chakra which occupies the space above the crown of your head. Spicy sweet lavandin clarifies a low functioning crown chakra, while neroli or vanilla calm. Look to frankincense to maintain a well functioning crown chakra.

Essential Oils to repel flies

Flies are annoying pests that you probably notice around your Plants, kitchen or sink drains.

Getting rid of flies naturally is fairly easy. Once you disturb their environment and make sure that surfaces are clean and dry, your problem should disappear quite quickly, but they will come back.

Worse still, if you like house plants and growing fruit and vegetables they may even increase in number so how can we keep them at bay effectively?

Flies can quickly become a nuisance in your home and before you know it, you have a large number of flies infesting your property.

Natural apple cider vinegar and honey fly trap

A tried and tested method of getting rid of flies, is to make a trap with apple cider vinegar (ACV). Apple cider vinegar makes an effective fly trap because the acetic acid has insecticidal properties. ACV has a sweeter smell than regular vinegar and this lures the drain flies to the trap. For a quicker response add some honey too.

Essential oil spray for killing flies

You can also use an essential oil spray to destroy flies naturally and safely. Many essential oils contain insect repellent properties. They are toxic to flies, insects, and can help get rid of ants, but can safely be used around the house and kids.

You can use any of the essential oils used in the essential oil fly spray because they all have proven efficacy against insects. Other great essential oils for getting rid of pesky flies are:

  • Peppermint oil
  • Melaleuca oil (Tea Tree)
  • Lavender oil
  • Lemongrass oil

How to use:

All you need to make a spray to get rid of flies for good is a few drops of essential oil, some liquid soap, water, and a spray bottle.

  • Fill a spray bottle almost to the top with water.
  • Add 5 – 10 drops of your favourite essential oil. (You can use just one, or experiment with a combination to get a smell that you love).
  • Add 1-2 drops of dishwashing liquid.
  • Shake well.
  • Spray on the drain flies to kill them. You can then wipe the surfaces with a clean paper towel to remove the dead flies and clean the surface.

For House Plants

  • For plants Soak a few cotton buds in the solution and stick them around the plants.

3 of these oils can be found in the Family Essentials Kit

Zendocrine blend

Zendocrine Detoxification Blend

Zendocrine detoxification blend is a fairly new essential oil blend to support the body’s natural ability to rid itself of unwanted substances,  cleanse the body of toxins and support healthy liver function, while also purifying and detoxifying systems of the body.

With more people turning to essential oil blends to promote overall health, I wanted to look into the benefits of Zendocrine.

What is Zendocrine?

Zendocrine is on of our doTERRA essential oils blend products. This detoxification blend offers a host of benefits, but primarily its uses include:

  • Supporting healthy liver function.
  • Detoxifying systems of the body.
  • Body system purification.
  • Supports the body’s ability to cleanse the body of toxins.

Essential oil blends are volatile aromatic compounds found in the bark, flowers, roots, seeds, and stems of the plant. What is a volatile aromatic compound? They are small organic molecules changing from a liquid or solid state into a gas; all at room temperature. When volatile aromatic compounds move through the air, they in-turn affect the sensory glands; making essential oil blends ideal for use in aromatherapy.

Benefits of Zendocrine

While doTERRA offers key benefits of Zendocrine, there are additional benefits of essential oil blends. The primary benefits of Zendocrine include:

  • Body system purification.
  • Claims to cleanse the body of toxins.
  • Supports healthy liver function.
  • Additional benefits of essential oils include:
  • Complementary treatment to massage therapy and acupuncture.
  • Positive effects on nausea and vomiting.

INGREDIENTS

Zendocrine Ingredients

Zendocrine ingredients are listed in a proprietary blend, including:

  • Tangerine peel
  • Rosemary leaf
  • Geranium flower/leaf
  • Juniper berry
  • Cilantro herb

Tangerine Peel

Tangerine, as with other citrus fruits, has been studied extensively for its health benefits. The Chemistry Central Journal concluded, “metabolites in Citrus…work synergistically to exhibit anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory properties.”

Rosemary

Rosemary is used in culinary dishes throughout the world, but also offers health benefits. According to the journal Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, “uses of rosemary are antibacterial, antioxidant, improving cognitive deficits, and anti-inflammatory.”

Additionally, the journal Psychiatry Research found “smelling rosemary increases free radical scavenging activity and decreases cortisol levels.”

Geranium

Geranium is an essential oil studied for its benefits on stress reduction. According to the Journal of Caring Sciences, “Aroma of essential oil of geraniums can effectively reduce [stress]…and can be recommended as a non-invasive anti-[stress] aid.”

Juniper Berry

Juniper is native to Europe, North and South America. According to the journal International Scholarly Research Notices, juniper has been used in “herbal medicine…as [an] antidiarrheal, anti-inflammatory, astringent, and antiseptic.”

Research presented in the journal Antioxidants concluded, “antioxidant research of juniper essential oil provided the existence of several mechanisms which enabled [free] radical scavenging.”

Cilantro

Cilantro is another plant often used in culinary dishes possessing both nutritional and medicinal properties. Based on research presented in the journal Fitoterapia, cilantro offers “anti-inflammatory properties.”

Zendocrine Uses

Aside from the claimed benefits of Zendocrine, uses of the essential oil include:

  • Aromatic
  • Topical
  • Internal

Aromatic

As a part of an aromatic essential oil regimen, users will add Zendocrine to a diffuser of their choice. You’ll add three to four drops of Zendocrine to your diffuser.

Topical

Zendocrine can be used topically. You can create a Zendocrine detox bath by adding three or four drops to your bath. Some also add Epson salts as well. An additional topical application of Zendocrine is applying directly to the skin. The company recommends applying one to two drops to a particular area. doTERRA suggests diluting Zendocrine with a carrier oil (fractionated coconut oil) to minimize skin sensitivity.

Internal

You’ll add one to two drops of Zendocrine to your citrus drinks, water or tea. doTERRA suggests diluting one drop in four ounces of liquid before adding to a dink.

Zendocrine Side Effects

Instead of focusing on side effects found in Zendocrine blend, I have looked at any potential side effects of Zendocrine ingredients.

Tangerine Peel

One of the potential side effects of using tangerine essential oil is skin reactions. According to the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, “To avoid any possible adverse skin reactions, it is recommended to dilute Citrus oils with a carrier oil before topical use.”

Something often missed regarding side effects from tangerine essential oil is the potential interaction with prescription medication.

Rosemary Leaf

While there’s no mention of adverse effects of using rosemary essential oil, there are some positive side effects. According to the journal Scientia Pharmaceutica, in an animal study, mice were exposed to “.5 mL of rosemary for a period of an hour [resulting] in locomotive activity of mice was increased.”

Geranium Flower/Leaf

Some users may notice side effects from this particular ingredient. However, according to the Dental Research Journal, research has “not observed any reportable side effects in patients receiving Geranium.”

Juniper Berry

According to Toxnet Toxicology Data Network, some reported side effects of juniper include “difficulty in breathing, wheezing, and coughing.”, so I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone with asthma or respiratory conditions.

Cilantro

Cilantro is generally safe to use. However, according to the Indian Journal of Pharmacology, cilantro may have a “sedative” effect.WARNINGS

Zendocrine Warnings

There are warning and cautions mentioned on the official website regarding Zendocrine.

  • Possible skin sensitivity.
  • Keep out of the reach of children.
  • Consult a doctor if you’re pregnant, nursing or under the care of a doctor.
  • Avoid contact with the eyes, inner ears or sensitive areas.

  • 15-milliliter bottle – £28

Customers signing up for a wholesale account receive a 25 percent discount; lowering the price to:

  • 15-milliliter bottle – £21

Zendocrine Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • There is research to support health benefits of some ingredients in Zendocrine.

Cons:

  • May cause skin irritation.
  • Science shows possible side effects.
