New doTERRA product

Women’s Phytoestrogen Complex

60 HPMC Vegetable Capsules

dōTERRA Women Phytoestrogen Lifetime Complex is a blend of natural plant extracts that support hormone balance throughout the different phases of a woman’s life.

Phytoestrogen Lifetime Complex includes a standardized soy extract with genistein, a powerful phytoestrogen that binds with estrogen receptors in cells, and the natural phytoestrogens in pomegranate.

It also includes and concentrated extract of flaxseed lignans to help manage potentially harmful metabolites that are produced when estrogen is metabolized in the liver.

Balancing hormones and managing harmful metabolites by eating a healthy diet rich in phytoestrogens and other essential nutrients, exercising, and managing weight can help reduce uncomfortable symptoms associated with PMS and the transition through menopause and supports healthy bones, heart, breast tissue, and other body structures and functions as a woman ages.

Concept

Women have particular health needs that may require specific and targeted dietary and lifestyle choices. If not addressed early in life, these specific health requirements can lead to uncomfortable and persistent symptoms associated with hormone cycles and aging, and can increase a woman’s risk of  early onset of degenerative conditions.

Almost every function in a women’s body is controlled by hormones. Estrogen and progesterone are particularly important hormones for women and will influence a woman’s good health and emotional well-being throughout her lifetime. High estrogen production in young women can result in significant issues related to menstruation, while the production of too little estrogen as a women ages can impact many aspects of a woman’s reproductive  health and can be a contributing factor to the health challenges that some women experience during and after menopause. Balancing estrogen levels will help minimize  monthly hormone swings and the hormone fluctuations associated with menopause.

Phytoestrogens


Phytoestrogens are compounds found in plants that have similar properties to estrogen produced in the body. The size and shape of phytoestrogen molecules are similar to estrogen and can bind with estrogen beta receptors in cells. Beta receptors are predominately found in skin, bone, and cardiovascular tissues where increased estrogen activity has positive health benefits, while beta receptors are low in tissues of the breasts and uterine areas where over exposure to estrogen may be of concern. In addition to producing gentle estrogenic effects in the body, phytoestrogens can help balance hormones and hormone metabolites by blocking estrogens from binding to cells.

dōTERRA Women Phytoestrogen Lifetime Complex™ is an all-natural dietary supplement  formulated to support healthy hormone levels in women. Phytoestrogen Lifetime Complex includes standardized extracts of soy and pomegranate that provide supplemental plantsourced phytoestrogens that have gentle estrogenic activity. It also includes a standardized extract of flax seed lignans that help manage the potentially harmful metabolite by-products
of hormone metabolism. Eating right, exercising, and balancing hormone levels can help reduce uncomfortable symptoms associated with PMS and the transition through menopause and, more importantly, support healthy bones, heart, breast tissue, and other body structures and function as a woman ages.

Sweet & Spicy Fennel Oil

doTERRA Essential Oil

Fennel 

Deep Cleansing, Purifying and Revitalizing

Used for centuries for its many health benefits, fennel essential oil has pronounced antioxidant properties and is considered a tonic.

Sweet Fennel has compounds that are anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogestic, positive hormone activity within the body to support hormonal balance -male and female – amazing positive support for gastro-intestinal and urinary tract systems.

Fennel’s sweet yet spicy aroma is balancing and may bring to mind licorice.

Fennel is a hardy biennial or perennial herb, growing to a height of two meters (six feet), with fine, feathery leaves and umbels of golden-yellow flowers. The essential oil is produced from the crushed seeds.

-

The use of Fennel as an herb stretches back to antiquity, featuring in the culinary and medical arts of Ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome and India, as well as in Anglo-Saxon Cookery. Fennel (sweet) has clean, sweet, aniseed top notes and earthy, spicy, peppery undertones.

-

It blends well with Geranium, Lavender, Black Pepper, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Frankincense and Lemon.

===

Properties: Analgesic, anti-infectious, anti-parasitic, antispasmodic, antiseptic, aperitive, carminative (settles digestion), depurative(purifies and cleanses the blood), cholagogic (stimulates the flow of bile from the gall bladder into the intestines), digestive stimulant, diuretic, emmenagogic (promotes and regulates menstruation), expectorant, lactogenic, oestrogen-like, expectorant, splenic, stomatic, relieves colic, indigestion and excessive gas.

-

Fennel has a tonic effect on the smooth muscle of the intestine, which is valuable in colitis, and in some cases of constipation, as it strengthens peristalisis (the rhythmic contractions of the intestinal muscles which move the partially-digested food mass through the intestines).

=====

Uses:

Fennel is a good urinary-tract antiseptic, excellent for alleviating flatulence and digestive problems, local massage combined with drinking Fennel Tea is recommended.

-

Fennel is very supportive of the respiratory system in that it can relieve coughs and nervous asthma.

-

Fennel helps eliminate water retention issues, cellulite and obesity if
enough water is consumed on a regular basis (both apply topically and ingest as a Tea several times a day) – makes happy Kidneys and Spleen

-

It also can be helpful with gout, arthritis, etc. to prevent the build-up of toxic wastes in the body, which precede the inflammatory condition of the joints.

-

Fennel is one of the plants that has been known for thousands of years for its effects on the female reproductive system. It now seems probable that this is due to a plant hormone – a form of oestrogen – in its structure. It can help to regularize the menstrual cycle, particularly where periods are scanty and painful, with cramping pains. It has been found to reduce symptoms of pre-menstrual stress, and also the water retention, which many women experience in the few days before menstruation is due.

-

A few drops rubbed between the palms of the hand and inhaling has an amazing positive effect inside and out.  Fennel encourages us to express ourselves!  Fennel Oil releases our urge to create. It helps us to find, like oil of Ginger, productive outlets for the active mind.

Native to India, the grass also grows in Java, the Seychelles, Reunion, Brazil, Haiti and Japan. Its nature as the oil of tranquility is reflected in a dark amber liquid that is so thick and almost treacle-like. It is a beautiful oil for the home as it can help with many day to day ailments.

Here are the five reasons to love vetiver essential oil:

Reason #1: Vetiver essential oil is deeply relaxing

Known as the oil of tranquility, it is beneficial for anyone experiencing stress, anxiety, insomnia or depression. It is a nervine (strengthens the nerves and nervous system) and sedative (reduces nervousness, distress and agitation) therefore the perfect oil to help you ground, relax and balance yourself in “I want to scream and pull my hair out” moments.

Reason #2: Vetiver essential oil is great for skin, especially wrinkles and stretchmarks

Its vulnerary (prevent tissue regeneration and promotes wound healing) and cicatrisant (promotes formation of scar tissue) properties make it excellent for healing tired and stressed skin.

It is excellent for revitalizing skin after childbirth to minimize stretchmarks. It can also help with cuts, wounds and scars. It is helpful in daily skincare in the treatment of dry, dehydrated skin as well as bruises. Very moisturizing, it can even be used in facial blends for wrinkles. It is up there with a woman’s best friend.

Reason #3: Vetiver essential oil is very effective at relieving muscular aches 

Vetiver oil is rubefacient (meaning it’s warming and increases blood flow) and therefore superb in the treatment of general body aches and pains, bruises, rheumatism and arthritis.

The use of vetiver in a massage blend is a deeply relaxing treatment that soothes aches and pains and is highly recommended for anyone with sore joints. Very good for massage in stressful times that manifest into a very sore and achy body.

Reason #4: Vetiver essential oil is superb at helping PMS and menopausal issues

Vetiver oil is an excellent oil to have in the house when there are women around (of any age!). Whether it is you that suffers PMS or menopausal symptoms or the person you live with, vetiver essential oil is a star in helping to regulate hormones!

It is said to regulate the secretion of estrogen and progesterone, making it very helpful during menopause. Its cooling action also helps with hot flushes and its grounding action helps to balance the emotions.

PMS can be caused by estrogen deficiency and therefore is helpful for the same reasons as menopause. Its uplifting and grounding nature can help with unbalanced emotions during the menstrual period.

Reason #5: Vetiver essential oil is great for the digestive system

Vetiver oil is able to support the body’s restorative, absorptive and anabolic functions. It is therefore useful for stimulating a poor appetite, for weight loss, in cases of anemia and malabsorption. It is also said to be helpful for a congested liver and pancreas.

Vetiver oil is a gounding and uplifting essential oil great for revitalizing the skin, relaxing the mind and relieving muscular aches and pains, treating PMS and menopausal symptoms and helping with digestive complaints.

For the oil burner or diffuser it blends excellently with essential oils of frankincense, grapefruit, lemon, sandalwood and ylang ylang.

Most recently, parents have found it highly effective in treating ADD or ADHD as an alternative to Ritalin and other prescription medications.
-
Recently, Dr. Terry Friedman MD, did a 2 year study of children between the ages of 6-12 years old, trying to identify essential oils useful in the treatment of ADD/ADHD. Vetiver Oil was shown to be highly successful with a 100% of the subjects over a 30 day period when the children felt “scatter brained”. Dr Friedman used the inhalation method.
-

Typical Applications

Apply 3-4 drops of vetiver to a child’s back or the bottom of their feet using a carrier oil immediately following a shower and prior to bed time. With experience combine vetiver with a balancing, uplifting, or relaxing blend to enhance the help. The synergistic combination with a single oil such as lavender, ylang ylang or clary sage will also be effective.

Application has also historically proven helpful through the olfactory system (inhalation). Prepare a tissue cup or inhaler to be used when anxiety or other symptoms of ADHD are felt.

Why is Melissa Essential Oil so expensive?

Melissa Essential Oil
Melissa officinalis

Our most expensive and rare oil, Melissa essential oil has a sweet, fresh, citrus-like fragrance and is steam distilled from the fresh flowering tops, leaves and stems of the Melissa officinalis plant. With a wide range of therapeutic properties, Melissa can be used for calming the nerves, addressing stomach discomfort, mood support, and seasonal bugs. Because the Melissa plant has an oil yield of less than 1/10 of 1%, it is one of the most commonly adulterated oils. For aromatic, topical, or internal use.

Melissa essential oil (also known as Lemon Balm) has a great variety of possible effects. The word ‘Melissa’ is Greek for ‘Honey Bee’, Melissa having been planted near bee hives to produce the most delicious honey. Melissa oil is considered one of the most powerfully medicinal essential oils in all of aromatherapy, with a wonderfully pleasant sweet, herbaceous aroma.

A great deal of oil sold as Melissa today is actually a blend of lemongrass and citronella oils – ‘true’ Melissa oil has its own unique aroma and properties. Melissa’s high cost is a result of needing 3.5 to 7.5 tons of plant material to produce 1 pound of essential oil. The resulting oil from this sweet-smelling herb is a pale yellow liquid with a light, fresh lemony aroma. Melissa oil offered at exceptionally low prices is likely to be adulterated in some way, and will not have the medicinal properties of the true essential oil.

Melissa was called the ‘elixir of life’ by Avincenna, the ancient Roman physician. The herb was associated particularly with nervous disorders, the heart, and emotions. Melissa was used for anxiety, melancholy, and to strengthen and revive the vital spirit.

To quote Kurt Schnaubelt in Advanced Aromatherapy, “The way in which melissa oil combines an excellent antiviral component with a soothing but pervasive sedative power is difficult to imagine; it has to be experienced. In its complexity, power, and gentleness, melissa oil perfectly illustrates how nature time after time works better than one-dimensional synthetic medicines.”

Melissa is a strong antiviral – a doctor at the Technical University of Munich reported that application caused a complete remission of Herpes Simplex lesions. A component of Melissa oil was isolated and is sold in ‘Lomaherpan’ cream in Germany, though the oil can effectively used alone. While it is expensive, only one drop at a time is needed on lesions to promote remission. A drop can be applied directly on the area a few times a day to speed healing, and again when an outbreak is soon to occur – following this protocol was shown to prevent further outbreaks in a significant portion of study participants.

At the same time, Melissa is very gentle on the emotions, and can bring out this quality in a individual. Melissa oil is said to be calming and uplifting, may relieve headaches, and may help balance the emotions. Results of a study published in an alternative medicine journal showed Melissa to be effective in reducing agitation, and may have significant quality-of-life effects. Further, it may help release emotional blocks and lead to an improved outlook on life.

It is a mild sedative in small doses, and believed to calm anxiety. Both calming and uplifting, Melissa Essential oil is said to be extremely useful in cases of emotional shock, grief, fear and anger. It is said to bring acceptance and understanding.

Dementia: A recent study quoted in the Journal of Complimentary Medicine showed that Melissa Essential oil is a safe and effective treatment for the management of agitation in severe dementia.  The study indicates that true pure melissa oil significantly reduced agitation and has important quality of life benefits.

Use of a Melissa herbal extract in a study of patients with mild to moderate Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/ADHD) experienced significant benefits in cognition after 16 weeks of treatment.

List of common uses:

  • Anti Depressant: This property is one of the four aces of the medicinal properties of this oil. It is an effective mood lifter and anti depressant. It has been found to drive away sadness and bring joy and hope. That is why it was called “Elixir of Life” or “Nectar of Life”, way back in Fifteenth Century.
  • Cordial: This means that it invokes warm feelings and gives warmth to the respiratory system and the cardio-vascular system. One can avoid frequent colds with the help of this property.
  • Nervine: It is a Nervine. This means that it serves as a tonic for the nervous systems, keeping it healthy, functioning properly and strong and helps avoid nervous disorders. Problems like vertigo, nervousness, convulsions etc. can be treated using this property of Melissa Essential Oil.
