Aromatherapy for Menstrual Cramps

Terms: Uncategorized

Plant Essential oils have many healing properties and they have an
added benefit of smelling really good! A recent study found that a
blend of specific essential oils massaged into the abdomen reduced
menstrual cramps by 50%. I just read the study and have only prescribed
the treatment to two patients, but both of them reported success with
the treatment, which they both said helped within a half hour of the
application. Even if Advil were to work, it usually takes longer than a
half hour to get some relief and the essential oils don’t cause stomach
upset!
