Balancing, Uplifting, Refreshing Geranium!

Geranium Essential Oil
Pelargonium graveolens

Geranium offers outstanding benefits for soothing skin and is a common ingredient in many skin care products. Also useful for joint support and tempering minor aches and pains, geranium’s calming effects make it a popular choice for many essential oil users.

Geranium is an aromatic, perennial, hairy plant with serrated leaves and flowers varying from light pink through to deep rose, magenta or red. Geranium essential oil is obtained by steam distillation from the flowers, leaves, and stalks.

 It is sometimes described as resembling Rose oil, though a sensitive nose would never confuse the two. It mixes well with Bergamot, Basil, Rosemary, Rose, Wild Orange, Sandalwood, Lemon, Patchouli and Lavender.

Geranium is composed of several potent constituents offering outstanding benefits and a history of traditional uses. It has been used to soothe inflammation and irritated skin. It is a common ingredient in many skin care products due to its healing nature. Geranium is a superb choice for ache, bruises and even burns. Due to its analgesic characteristics it is often used as a topical agent for individuals suffering with arthritis or rheumatism. Geranium stimulates the immune system, aids in poor circulation, is anti-mucolytic, uplifting to the mood and its calming effect on the nervous system is pronounced.

Geranium has been reported to reduce the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome and candidiasis (single-celled fungus). Improves immune system and is helpful as a stimulant for both lymphatic and circulatory systems.
-
Geranium is a great balancer, due to it being an adrenal cortex stimulant, and helps regulate moods. Great for women having trouble getting pregnant and for symptoms of menopause because of its ability to support hormone balance. It is one of the most useful essential oils to help eliminate cellulite. Geranium is often included in lymphatic drainage massage blends.
-
Menopause occurs for most women in their late forties and early fifties. Some women are relatively symptom-free, but many suffer from excessively heavy periods, hot flashes, depression and insomnia. Geranium is a hormonal balancer, while Rose tones and cleanses the uterus, and Cypress helps to relieve excessive menstrual flow. These oils can be used in massage, as well as in baths and as hot compresses over the abdomen
-
Geranium is effective in working with skin issues: Relieves inflammation, eczema, acne, burns, infected wounds, ringworm, lice, shingles and herpes blisters. Excellent for regeneration of skin cells and great for retarding the development of scar tissue so after burns or deep cuts use Geranium with Lavender to promote healing without scaring; great for our varicose vein blends and relief of broken capillaries.
-
Geranium is an insecticide, due to its terpene content, and is a very good mosquito repellent that will only improve the skin as opposed to irritate the surface like OTC repellents.

Geranium is excellent for dry cough – apply to outside of throat and inhale.

All Natural Infertility Support

DoTerra Essential Oil Support For:

Infertility

Primary infertility describes couples who have never been able to become pregnant after at least 1 year of unprotected sex (intercourse).

Secondary infertility describes couples who have been pregnant at least once, but have not been able to become pregnant again.

Female infertility may be due to:

  • Problems with a fertilized egg or embryo being able to survive once it is attached to the lining of the uterus
  • Problems with the fertilized egg being able to attach to the lining of the uterus
  • Problems with the eggs being able to move from the ovary to the uterus
  • Problems with the ovaries producing eggs

    Female infertility may be caused by:

    Autoimmune disorders, Clotting disorders, Uterine birth defects, Hormone imbalance , Obesity, Pelvic infection, Scar Tissue, Long-term (chronic) disease, Excessive exercising, eating disorders, or poor nutrition

    Male infertility may be due to:

    • A decrease in the number of sperm
    • Sperm being blocked from being released
    • Sperm that do not work properly

      Male infertility can be caused by:

      Environmental pollutants, Hormone deficiency, Infections of the testes or epididymis, Older age, Radiation exposure, Scar tissue, Smoking, Genetic abnormalities, Impotence, Use of certain prescription drugs, Heavy use of alcohol, marijuana, or cocaine

      This is a very sensitive subject, especially for myself. I have blocked fallopian tubes due to scar tissue… and have been given this treatment to try when my husband and I are ready to start trying for children. I’ve heard great success stories with using essential oils along with massage therapy to treat both male & females dealing with infertility. It does take some time… but its worth trying an all natural approach before anything else. Just relax and enjoy the process. This treatment is said to work best when scar tissue, infections, hormone imbalance, or no known reason for infertility is found.

      doTERRA Essential Oils work perfectly with the body to support normal functions of the body and dōTERRA products are safe to use on all ages.

      More Help:

      Both Men & Women:

      Quitting smoking will greatly help conceiving

      Avoid refined carbohydrates and enjoy more green, red & yellow fruits & veggies -like blueberries, red peppers, and kale. The more vivid the hue, the more nutrient-packed the produce. Restock your fruit bowl and produce bin weekly, and aim for eating about 2 cups of fruit and 3 cups of veggies a day.

      For Women:

      If you decide to take an over-the-counter multivitamin instead of a prenatal vitamin, be sure to follow these important guidelines:

      • Make sure it doesn’t contain more than the recommended daily allowance of 770 mcg (2,565 IU) of vitamin A, unless it’s all in a form called beta-carotene. Getting too much of a certain kind of vitamin A can cause birth defects. (The kind that occurs naturally in food is safe, so you don’t have to worry about overdoing it by eating foods rich in vitamin A.)
      • Look for a multivitamin with at least 400 micrograms of folic acid. This B vitamin protects babies from neural tube birth defects such as spina bifida. It’s especially important to get enough folic acid before you get pregnant, because your baby’s neural tube will form just three to four weeks after conception, when many women don’t even realize they’re pregnant.
      • Choose a multivitamin that also delivers a healthy dose of vitamin B12. Preliminary evidence hints that B12 deficiency may also play a role in some neural tube defects. Because vitamin B12 is found primarily in animal-based foods, women who rarely eat meat or follow a strict vegetarian or vegan diet should either look for a multivitamin that delivers the entire B12 recommended daily allowance (2.4 micrograms) or consider a B12 supplement
      For Men:
      Take a daily multivitamin that contains zinc and selenium for at least three months before conception. Studies suggest these minerals aid in healthy sperm development. Why the three-month lag time? It takes that long to develop healthy sperm.
