Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • The best way to use essential oils for hormone balance
  • How we can use essential oils to lower our stress and cortisol levels and support adrenal function
  • The must-have essential oils when we are traveling
  • How to differentiate a high-quality essential oil from a low-quality one
  • The areas at home that we can use essential oils to reduce the toxic load


Key Takeaways:

  • One of the first steps to really get radical self-healing is self-awareness, where we are able to really become aware of how we are feeling, whether it’s feeling drained, exhausted, energized, or overly stressed, and how we begin to implement changes.
  • Essential oils are able to bridge the gap between wanting healthy behaviors and habits and actually doing them.
  • Essential oils are not synthetic hormones, but they work with our adrenals and they work with helping to balance that interplay between estrogen and progesterone.
  • Dr. Mariza Snyder’s hormone blend: Place 10 drops of Clary Sage + 8 drops of Lavender + 8 drops of Geranium + 4 drops of Bergamot + 4 drops of Ylang-Ylang in a 10ml roller, and top it off with whatever carrier oil you prefer.
  • Essential oils are the ultimate swap for the toxic products that you have at home as long as you have a couple of other key ingredients. For green cleaning, that’s just baking soda, vinegar, distilled water and essential oils.


Action Steps:

  • Start your day with a morning ritual and end with an evening ritual.
  • Lower your stress levels by doing the “power of the pause” breathwork with a combination of lavender and bergamot essential oils until you get back to a calm state of being.
  • Swap your toxic products at home for safer DIY products using essential oils.


Dr. Mariza Snyder said:

“What I had found is that oils really made a lot of those healthy habits fun and rewarding and joyful, and that was awesome to me. And not only was it just a fun experience, but they really have these beautiful chemical constituents…”


“A good friend of mine and one of my favorite aromatherapists and a mentor to me used to say, ‘You know what? The cool thing about essential oils is that you literally get to choose your mood. You can choose the way that you want to feel because of oils.’”
