    Default treating PCOS with aromatherapy and essential oils...

    i'm reading a book about aromatherapy (which i have little or no experience withyet) and i found some interesting information regarding a treatment with essential oils. thought you all might like it. i don't know if this works as i haven't tried it yet because i can't find a retailer for pure essential oils in my area.

    polycystic ovarian disease synergistic blend (EO= essential oil)

    10 drops of clary-sage EO
    10 drops of fennel EO
    7 drops of geranium EO
    3 drops of rose EO
    add these amounts to 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil and gently rub over the abdomen once a day...or..

    make the synergistic blend using these proportions and use 6 drops to a bath, and make an oil using 5 drops synergistic blend to 1 teaspoon vegetable oil.

    (note: these are not to be used in lieu of treatment by a doctor)

    thanks...the book is called The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy by Valerie Ann Worwood. It's pretty interesting and covers everything from atheletes feet to cabbage soup.

    what haven't I tried to lose weight...LOL i'm eating 1200 calories or less (all good things, nothing fried and nothing soaked in fat for my cholesterol issues) and i eat a minimum of every 3 hours...i can't let myself get hungry because then i overindulge myself and that's ugly. i try to keep carbs at 100 per day or less, but that doesn't always work and i try to keep fat under 40. i don't kick myself if i screw up and if i do screw up, i allow myself the screw up and go back to what i was doing. that was an important step for me. i heard someone say "when you know better, you do better" and i try to remember that all the time.

    thanks for asking!
