How to Make a Hormonal Balancing Patch

How to Make a Hormonal Balancing Patch

How to Make a Hormonal Balancing PatchUsing essential oil patches is an easy way to use aromatherapy for healing and balancing. Make sure you are using therapeutic grade essential oils! The lesser quality oils won’t have any effect.

These patches help to balance any hormonal imbalances and aid with PMS. They can be freshened by adding more essential oils later in the day, or may be changed twice a day. The best time to wear these patches is from your period until ovulation. If you do not have dot bandages, cotton balls and adhesive tape work well also.

Here is an easy way to make a hormone balancing patch using essential oils.

What you need :

  • 2 dot Band-Aids
  • evening primrose oil
  • essential oils of geranium, clary sage.

How to:
1. Take one band aid and apply ten drops of evening primrose oil, two drops of geranium and one drop of clary sage essential oil to the cotton side.

2. Apply this band aid directly over where your ovaries are located, just above the pubic bone.

3. Repeat with the second one, applying it to the other side.

Other uses
You can use this patch for many other essential oil applications. For example:

Colds/lowered immune system– use one drop each of eucalyptus, tea tree oil and thyme oil diluted with 10 drops of flax oil, place essential oil patches to the chest.

Digestive problems– use one drop each ginger and chamomile diluted with 10 drops flax oil, place essential oil patches on the stomach.

For studying– use one drop of each basil, peppermint, lemon diluted with 10 drops flax oil, place essential oil patches at the base of the neck and head (right below the hairline).

Stressed out- use one drop of each lavender, rose, and patchouli diluted with 10 drops flax oil, place essential oil patches on the chest.

Headache– Use two drops of peppermint diluted with 10 drops flax oil, place essential oil patches at the base of the neck and head (right below the hairline).

The possibilities are endless. I love these patches!

    First I’d like to say you have by far the best site I’ve found on natural fertility. I was wondering what your thoughts are on adrenal fatigue and TTC. I take a whole food prenatal multi, vitex, maca, fish oils, and natural progesterone cream. I am trying to eat basically the fertility diet – organic.Plus celtic sea salt. I’ve read that it takes a good year (when doing everything right ) to recover:~( Is there much hope TTC while healing?
    Thanks so much!

    • Hi Kim,

      It sounds like you are on the right track, I commend you for taking control of your health. It may be possible to conceive while healing, you never know. Life is mysterious in the ways it works, I hope you can conceive!

    hi is it true that maca can lower the fsh?

      Hi Susie,

      I keep hearing that some of our community has read on the internet that Maca increases FSH and others say it can lower FSH. I don’t know if Maca directly affects FSH levels to increase or decrease FSH. I have not read a study on that. I do know that Maca is a nourishing food that over time, 3 months or longer nourishes the endocrines system in our bodies, both men and women. Maca aids the pituitary, adrenal and thyroid glands which are all involved in hormonal balance. Maca affects key hormones without containing any hormones itself. Maca helps to stimulate and nourish the pituitary gland, acting as a tonic for the hormone system. When the pituitary gland functions optimally, the entire endocrine system becomes balanced, because the pituitary gland controls the hormone output of the other three glands.

      One herb that directly affects FSH level is Vitex. Vitex increases luteinizing hormone production while mildly inhibiting the release of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). This indirectly boosts progesterone production and chances of achieving and maintaining a successful pregnancy.

      All the Best,
