Most of us aren’t high wire performers because we lack balance. And perhaps there’s a great deal of fear. Our internal wiring also appreciates balance. When hormones are firing improperly, mood swings may be in full bloom in men and women. Other symptoms may be fatigue, weight gain, fertility problems, depression and insomnia. Left untreated, hormonal imbalances might trigger something more serious.
In today’s video, we will explore the medicinal benefits of 7 essential oils and how they can equalize those hormones.
