At Menopoised we're all about the empowerment of women and there can be no greater way to empower a woman than to give her the tools for self care.
We take the ancient wisdom of chinese medicine out of our clinic to empower you with natural, side effect free self care for peri/menopause.
One of the ways we do that is by stimulating acupuncture points - with magnets or oils. The other is by harnessing the medicinal properties of essential oils, according to the principles of chinese medicine to support your menopausal issues.
We're absolutely in love with Clary Sage. It's long been established as an amazing essential oil for women’s health. In Chinese Medicine its qualities make it the almost perfect oil for menopause.
Menopause is not one size fits all. Every woman is unique, every body is unique. Every inherited gene, every life lived. All these things make us the women we are.
Chinese Medicine recognises there isn’t a one size fits all and much like modern medicine it brings together signs and symptoms and uses that pattern to suggest a solution.
The wonderful thing about Clary Sage is its ability to balance. Which makes it an ideal candidate for all women.
From a Chinese Medicine perspective it
* nourishes blood (we know we need that as we no longer menstruate. This tells us our blood is no longer abundant)
* improves our Yin (which dwindles with age, for everyone and is the reason we become drier and hotter).
*descends yang, for anyone who’s experienced sudden angry outbursts, headaches or insomnia you may need this support.
Plus, and here’s the bit I really love it calms our shen (emotions). It’s incredibly soothing for irritation, calming for anxiety whilst helping with palpitations, insomnia and restlessness. And if that wasn’t enough it’s awesome for hot flushes and night sweats.
We combine it with calming geranium, clarifying lemon and moving peppermint to make a beautiful blend to help you Embrace Cool in more ways than one. Use regularly throughout the day to support your wellbeing or as and when you feel you need it on your pulse points.
You can experience the joy of Clary Sage by adding a few drops to some warm water and inhaling the calm as the oil diffuses.
