The cooling essential oil spray you can’t live without during menopause
Let’s face it, perimenopause and menopause aren’t exactly the most glamorous times in our life. It’s a time of secret women’s business and many women enter it feeling alone, clueless and powerless. It’s time that stopped!
I want to share with you the secrets of menopause and empower you to take back your life, and give birth to the new you!
If you can identify with this poem, then you are going to love the cooling essential oil spray that I show you in this blog.
The mother of all wake-up calls
After the hormones wear off like party drugs
The house is rewired
By a blind and maybe drunk electrician
Sparks are flying
The thermostat’s out of whack
It’s like living in a Bulgarian hotel
Still. The craziest hotel has its dance band.
I see you there in your little black dress
And little black mood.
You got back from Bangkok with new eyes,
just in time for your first granddaughter
to be born with your old eyes.
You can now turn your head side to side
Say no in several languages.
Oh, the forgotten pleasure
Of not pleasing.
You who skipped Ivanhoe and parallelograms
take night classes and sit up front.
Making yourself sharp and sure for
that woman in the glass.
The to-do list has changed
Do become self-basting.
Do buy yourself roses
And hang one over an ear.
Don’t finish books if you don’t like ‘em
Don’t examine thighs in tooth-paste flecked glass
Do stroll in the dark up Kilimanjaro
Write books start tea shops paint wild canvases?

Cooling Spray for Hot Flushes
Essential oils are a wonderful and natural way to empower you to manage your hot flushes. They work with the endocrine system and the limbic system to help you with both your emotions about the flushes and also cool your body temperature down. The secret sauce is in the blending and use of both the essential oils that will help the physical symptoms and then those that help the emotional side. Clever huh?
The simplest method is to set yourself up with a kit of essential oils, and make a few hot flush sprays and keep them in your handbag, kitchen and office, or wherever you might need them. A glass spray bottle can be easily purchased online or at a local eco store. The oils you need are Clary Sage, Peppermint, Lavender and Ylang Ylang Essential Oil. These essential oils are mixed with fractionated coconut oil and glycerine and then added to distilled water in a glass bottle. Simply spray all over or wherever needed when a hot flush strikes. The wonderful thing about this is that the spray acts instantaneously, cooling you down as well as smelling amazing!
In addition the essential oils in the kit are so versatile you can use them for countless other situations in your life. For example- did you know that Ylang Ylang can be used in hair preparations to promote thick, shiny, lustrous hair?
Once you have purchased the essential oils I will send you a welcoming email which has the recipe for the spray and also a welcome kit in the mail.

Here’s a little more about the essential oils needed for the spray:
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil:
She’s so delicate and beautiful, the Ylang Ylang Flower from Madagascar. Used historically for skin treatments, to soothe bites, and to regulate heartbeat and respiration, she’s known as the oil of sensuality and intimacy and the oil of the inner child. Ylang Ylang reconnects you with the pure and simple ways of your heart and restores your childlike sense of wonder, and is a powerful remedy for releasing emotional trauma and bottled up emotions such as anger and sadness.
During perimenopause and menopause, many women, who have not previously experienced a dark night of the soul, experience great irritation, frustration and anger and also relive traumatic memories, as if from nowhere. It’s all part of nature’s way, as our body releases our focus on nurturing and birthing others, and allows us to then cleanse, and restore ourselves, so that we are ready to create and give birth to our new future.
Ylang Ylang is connected to the heart chakra.
Menopause may be the end of once cycle, but it is the beginning of a much more wise and exciting cycle, if you chose to embrace it.
“You have within you, the power to create a life of joy, abundance and health, or you have the same ability to create a life filled with stress, fatigue and disease. With very few exceptions, the choice is yours.”
Christiane Northrup MD.
Peppermint Essential Oil
Peppermint essential oil is a fabulous oil to use during perimenopause and menopause as it relaxes your muscles and regulates the temperature in your body. It’s also wonderful for mental clarity and head tension. Emotionally, Peppermint Essential Oil is a heart chakra oil and is the oil of a buoyant heart, inspiration and self-satisfaction. When inhaled deeply, it opens the airways, and allows anxiety to be released.
Lavender Essential Oil:
Lavender essential oil is the oil of communication, expression and release. When used in a hot flushes spray it has a calming effect and creates a sense of well being. It can be used like spearmint essential oil for expression, which many women may find particularly helpful. During menopause and perimenopause many women find their significant relationships undergoing significant transformations. Anger that may have been bottled, and words and thoughts that have been repressed so as not to “rock the boat” may come spilling out. It may feel as though you just can’t hold back any longer.
Lavender helps reassure you so that you don’t feel insecure when expressing your thoughts and feelings. It encourages open and honest communication. Sometimes having these conversations can provoke head tension, and lavender can assist in reducing this.
Clary Sage Essential Oil
Clary Sage Essential oil is the oil of clarity, vision and intuition. She helps you see through your limiting beliefs to adopts a new perspective of life, and opens you to new possibilities and opportunities.
Connected to the brow chakra and sacral chakra it is an especially helpful essential oil for women at all stages of their life including the onset of menstrual cycle, fertility, childbirth, and the coming of wisdom with peri and menopause.
