“Ylang Ylang was the very first essential oil that I tried and it really caught my attention in minutes. It had been a long time and I was feeling a bit frayed around the edges. A friend gave my a couple of drops of Ylang Ylang on my wrists to try. I will tell you I was EXTREMELY skeptical. I tried it and then went about to forget about it. About 10-15 minutes later I noticed something, the frays around my edges were now gone??? I just felt a sense of calm…..The closest thing I can relate it to is when you have a glass of wine. Within the first few sips you feel a calm come over you that is later followed by the buzz. Well the feeling the Ylang Ylang gave me was the calm without the buzz. It was nice. But I don’t convince that easy, and I had to try it over and over and sure enough it brought on an amazing calm”

Thank you doTERRA’s ylang ylang!! I am 38.5 weeks pregnant, on bed rest for extremely high blood pressure. I have been using our ylang ylang for 3 days and my BP is back to normal!! Thanks for making such amazing and pure products!! -Rhonda DeSantis Woodruff

doTERRA’s Women’s Phytoestrogen Complex

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.


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 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


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).



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.

I gave birth to my third baby a little while ago and it was a wonderful experience. The labor and delivery went wonderful. I used clary sage and lavender during labor, and after birth to relax me, help soothe the contractions. I had my baby in the hospital, and it was so wonderful to have my oils along with me. I definitely believe in the use of modern medicine, but if I can take care of something myself first…by all means I would much rather do it. Especially with something that is natural, has no side effects and is beneficial for my body.
It was so nice, in the middle of the nightwhen I was in pain because my uterus was contracting back down, I didn’t have to call a nurse to give me medication. I could just rub Lavender and Clary sage on my lower abdomen and lower back. The nurses would come in and say, “oh, it smells so good in here.”
It was also quite nice that I could tell my doctor I didn’t need any prescriptions. I went home, enjoyed my baby and didn’t have any of the negative side effects that pain medication usually give me.
One of my favorite things to do following childbirth was to take a bath each night. I would put several drops of Lavender and Clary Sage in the tub. It was just the thing I needed, it was very soothing and relaxing. It helped with the anxiety of having my third baby and dealing with two other active children all day. I know this really helped me to not get the baby blues-doTERRA has helped me in so many ways!

  • Internally – doTERRA vetiver oil can be taken internally. Take using gel capsules or directly with food or beverage. Vetiver is classifed as a Food Additive (FA) and Flavoring Agent (FL) by the FDA.

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.
