Other suggestions

Here is what our RMO family members are saying about it on facebook:

  • PC: “I use it for balance.”
  • Foot massageSH: “I LOVE this oil for my endometriosis and ovarian cyst. Conventional medicine can only give me various types of birth control to control my horomones or do surgery for either of these problems but with my endovan (an alternative medicine made of herbs in a capsule) and Clary Sage for breakthrough pain I’m almost totally pain free from these conditions that were ruining my life because I was in too much pain and I was fricken CRAZY on birth control and fighting BAD with my husband because I was looking for a fight on those drugs and they still didn’t help at all. Now I’m hormone free and things are great with my husband. We have fought maybe twice this month. Mostly I put it whole on my ankle’s vitaflex points first then I put 4-6 drops over my lower abdomen as well as on my lower back, more heavily over where the pain is, as often as I need to. I would also sometimes put it in my hands and inhale.”
  • DT: “I am at the age for HOT FLASHES and I am using it in olive oil on my feet and abdomen but I am thinking I need to use it in other ways as well.”
  • MHM: “Last night made a little mix of Clary Sage, Lavender, Orange, one drop of Ylang Ylang and one drop of Chamomile all in a tiny bottle with carrier oil. It makes me feel very calm.”
  • CSN: “I have added it to water/witch hazel and made a spray. When I need a pick me up I just spritz some on my face, back of my neck. For the hot flashes I put some on the side of my foot in front of the ankles”

About JC Shannon

I am a writer. I was first introduced to this world of natural health in 2005 when I was asked to write an article about using essential oils. Since I like to know what I'm writing about before I do it, I immersed myself in the essential oil and aromatherapy world and found I prefer it. I never left it. In a quest to educate myself and others in more alternative and safer ways to make our world a better place, I am always looking for good information to share.
