Approximately 2 million women will enter menopause this year. In fact,
these women will spend half of their adult lives in menopause. Most
women think of menopause as the point when they cease to menstruate.
They do not link irritability, memory lapses, or mood swings to hormonal
changes. There is, however, an increasing awareness that menopause is
not an event, but a process. A process that can take as long as 6 to
15 years. These years, when the ovaries begin producing less estrogen,
have become known as peri-menopause.
Peri-menopause usually begins in the mid 40s, but symptoms can
begin as early as the mid 30s. At this point in life, many women
are performing the juggling act of work, home, raising families, and
looking after aging parents. We simply do not have the time to retreat
from life until we feel better.
Essential Oil of Clary Sage can help ease the symptoms of menopause.
Its distinct scent brings grace and ease to the peri-menopausal years.
No woman should be without it.

widely cultivated in the Mediterranean. The essential oil is steam distilled

effect that is almost narcotic. It is a relaxant for the mind, body,
Clary Sage Essential Oil also contains seductive, aphrodisiac properties
that are perfect for women experiencing a loss of interest in sex during
the peri-menopausal years. Its ability to relieve anxiety and stress

Each woman must make the personal choice of using prescription estrogen
vs natural estrogen based on her own experience. Being well-informed
on Alternative Therapies and Natural Remedies as well as being sensitive
to changes in your body, will help to ease the symptoms of peri-menopause.
