Maybe this is TMI, but at the 37/38 year old mark, my body is definitely changing. That time of the month for me has been a little crazy until recently. It was feeling kinda like a scene from Dexter, and I’ve definitely screamed out a few times, “Bloody Hell, Ron!” in my best Harry Potter voice. But seriously, what the heck is going on?! I hope I’m not the only one out there that at certain times of the day, if you don’t go to the bathroom to take care of things every 15-20 min, you are going to need to buy a whole new wardrobe.

For the most part, I’ve always had a pretty normal cycle, until I hit 37. Then things started to get a little crazy. At first, I thought it was just a heavy month because the next month would be totally fine. Or it would be fine for a couple months and then super heavy again. It was weird. But then it started to be like every month. NOOOOO! My cycle would be so heavy for like an hour or two that I was afraid to go out! Well, enough was enough. I had to admit that something had to change. SO... I went to my natural solutions first and broke into my dōTERRA essential oil stash.

Let’s talk for a second about this little amazing roll on called Clary Calm (monthly blend for women). I often talk about oils as being little drops of gold and let me tell you, this roll on is priceless to me! I started an experiment about 2 months ago. Right as I started to feel that PMS coming on, I started applying Clary Calm to my abdomen and around my ankles (inner and outer - it’s a reflexology thing. I know it seems a little nutty, but it totally works!). The monthly biatch in me started to be more manageable. I still had a crying moment here or there, but nothing like the raging witch that would come out in previous months. My husband was grateful and so was I. Even better though, when my period showed up, my cramps were minimal and that heavy flow that I had in previous months became manageable. NOTHING like it had been before. I couldn’t believe it. So, needless to say, I don’t want to be without this oil EVER!

Just an FYI, here are the PRIMARY BENEFITS of Clary Calm straight from the dōTERRA website:

  • Provides a soothing and calming effect during a woman’s menstrual cycle

  • Calming aroma helps soothe and balance heightened emotions

  • Helps balance mood throughout the month.

And some suggested USES also from dōTERRA

  • During your menstrual cycle, apply to abdomen to experience a soothing and calming massage.

  • During moments of heat, apply to the skin for a cooling, soothing effect.

  • Diffuse for a calming aroma that helps soothe heightened emotions.

Having this info is awesome, but once you experience it... it is totally AMAZING! Definitely an oil to have in your essential oil arsenal.
