This week I completed my review on rose geranium essential oil. I highlighted studies that demonstrated its ability to calm the brain and body and provide relief of symptoms that can result from women’s hormonal shifts throughout their lifespan- from labor to menopause. I found no evidence that rose geranium, when was used properly and with common sense, could cause the endocrine disruptions that some experts and bloggers claim. Rather, the science points to its ability to act as a balancer and harmonizer of hormones.

In this video, I provide an overview and clarification about the connection between hormones, rose geranium oil, and essential oils. I also discuss my experience of addressing reproductive imbalances in women and why it’s more important to treat the individual over lab values and numbers. Finally, I reveal what’s been keeping me so busy this past month with my website and exciting opportunities to access more training from me.

Give yourself 15-minutes to feed your mind with the info you crave on all these yummy tidbits:

  • How rose geranium oil and essential oils influence hormones
  • Essential oils’ effects on mood, stress, and sex steroid balance
  • Estrogen replacement vs. estrogen effects of essential oils
  • A holistic look at balancing hormones and assessing hormonal labs
  • Updates on my website’s facelift! It is now an unbranded essential oils website and database!  This was done to make research more freely available on the internet to the public and to make comfy and embrace all essential oils’ lovers.
  • Upcoming opportunities to get online education and training from me on hormones, essential oils, and other topics.
  • …and more!

You can read the original article and access the references on rose geranium essential oil’s effects on hormones throughout the reproductive cycle and beyond by clicking here. I have also provided some additional resources and fun reads on hormones below.

In an upcoming article, “The Three Considerations for Getting to the Root of Hormonal Problems: A Naturopathic and Functional Medicine Perspective,” I will review:

  • Why it’s important to understand the pitfalls of lab evaluations
  • Why assessing hormonal metabolism is a necessity
  • The importance of addressing the underlying factors and lifestyle modifications that address hormonal imbalances
  • More on my approach to achieving hormonal harmony with women in my practice

Stay tuned, this information will be very important for all women to understand, especially those on any form of hormonal replacement!!


I’d love to hear your feedback below.

Perceived Stress, Reproductive Hormones, and Ovulatory Function: a Prospective Cohort Study

  • “In summary, higher perceived daily stress levels among this cohort of healthy premenopausal women were associated with lower concentrations of total and free E2, LH, and luteal progesterone, higher concentrations of FSH, and increased odds for sporadic anovulation, after taking into account important baseline and time-varying confounding factors.”

Acute Stress May Induce Ovulation in Women

  • Whereas long-term, chronic stress can typically deplete reproductive hormones, estrogen levels in women will determine the effect of acute stress on their ovulation. This study also discusses the relationship between the cortisol response and hormones and glucocorticoids (such as cortisol) and gonadotrophins (pituitary output to signal sex hormones).
