Can essential oils also help men with hormone imbalance?
Of all the essential oils for hormones, Sandalwood oil is most effective in helping to balance testosterone levels in men, but of course in women as well. Sandalwood is also a natural aphrodisiac, making it a common ingredient in perfumes for men. It has a wonderful masculine scent.
For men with low testosterone, the advice is to add a few drops of Sandalwood oil to your homemade deodorant or your homemade body cream. Not only is it a great way to smell amazing, it is also a way for helping improve your libido and helps with hormonal imbalance.
You can mix all essential oils very easily with a good organic, carrier oil like Young Living’s V-6 or just nice smelling coconut oil. Smear it on different areas of the body, this way the oil is absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream throughout the body.
Why is there always Ylang Ylang in perfume?
Ylang-ylang is a yellow, star-shaped flower from the Cananga tree. The flower is found in tropical rainforests in India and parts of the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia., Australia, as well as on the Farm Finca Botanica in Ecuador. The flower has a wide range of benefits (based on scientific research and cultural traditions), ranging from beauty (it is known for its fragrance) to wellness benefits such as:
It brightens your mood. In a 2009 study, the flower increased calmness in participants. Whether applied directly to the skin or inhaled through a diffuser, the flower’s constituents can be a great stress reliever.
It acts as an aphrodisiac. There is no research to support this claim. However, the flower’s soothing properties have been associated with stimulating sexual desire and balancing mental health. In Ecuador, ONLY WOMEN pick the flowers ( of which the heart of the flower turns red)… You now understand why!
It supports the appearance of the skin. The main ingredient -linalool- uses its action to nourish, moisturise and help repair the skin. Read more about it in a 2017 study.
