Soothing Menopause: A look into Lavender, Jasmine and Rose Oils.🌹🪻😌

Hey there! 👋


I was casually reading about wellness trends when I came across this intriguing study about aromatherapy massages and their effect on menopausal symptoms. 🧐 You might be wondering, "What’s menopause, and why should I care?" Well, menopause is a natural phase in every woman's life, usually occurring between the ages of 45 and 55, where the body transitions out of the reproductive years. This process can bring along a bunch of not-so-fun symptoms like hot flashes, mood swings, and joint pain, making it quite a challenging time for many women. 🙈


Menopause is important because it significantly impacts a woman’s health and well-being. Understanding and managing the symptoms can greatly improve quality of life. 👩 Traditional treatments often involve hormone replacement therapy (HRT), but not everyone is keen on that due to potential side effects like increased risk of heart disease and breast cancer. That's where alternative therapies, like the one I read about, come into play.


The study I found, conducted by researchers in South Korea, explored the effects of aromatherapy massage on menopausal symptoms. They specifically looked at how lavender, jasmine, and rose oils, when massaged into the skin, could help alleviate those pesky symptoms. 🪻🌹💮 The study included 52 Korean climacteric women, split into two groups: one received the aromatherapy massage weekly for eight weeks, while the other group was a wait-listed control group that didn’t get the massage until after the study.


Lavender oil is renowned for its calming and relaxing properties, which can be super beneficial for those experiencing anxiety and mood swings during menopause. Jasmine oil, on the other hand, is known for its uplifting scent and ability to improve mood and reduce stress. Rose oil is celebrated for its ability to balance hormones and improve overall emotional well-being.


The results of the study were pretty promising. 🙌 Women who received the aromatherapy massage reported significantly lower scores on the menopausal index, which measures the severity of symptoms. This included notable improvements in areas like hot flashes, depression, and muscle and joint pain. 🥳 It’s fascinating because it shows that something as simple as a weekly massage with these essential oils can make a big difference.


One of the coolest things about aromatherapy is how it combines the power of touch with the therapeutic benefits of essential oils. The massage itself can help improve circulation, reduce stress, and promote relaxation, while the oils provide additional relief through their unique properties. 💆‍♀️ It's a holistic approach that targets both the body and mind, making it a win-win for those dealing with menopausal symptoms.


Of course, the study mentioned that it's still not entirely clear whether the benefits come from the aromatherapy, the massage, or a combination of both. But the bottom line is that the participants felt better, which is what truly matters. 😌 The researchers did call for more rigorous studies to further validate these findings, but this pilot study is a great starting point, wouldn’t you think?


So, if you or someone you know is navigating through menopause and looking for natural ways to manage the symptoms, aromatherapy massage might be worth a try. It’s a soothing, non-invasive option that not only addresses physical discomfort but also boosts emotional health. Plus, who doesn’t love a good massage, right? As you know, I do know a spa where they use the best formulated oils. 😉 Or if you want to do a DIY massage at home you can grab 🪻Oleia Lavender Oil🪻, 💮Oleia Jasmine Oil💮 and 🌹Oleia Rose Oil🌹 here.
