Luna Warrior Daily for Menopause

While both Luna Warrior blends can help with the pain and discomfort that come with our monthly menstrual cycles, let’s not forget that there is actually quite a bit they can do for those in Menopause as well.

Menopause is a natural biologic process occurring in the body due to changing hormone levels. Menopause can begin at any time between ages 40 and 55. These natural hormonal changes can cause emotional and physical discomfort.

Some common symptoms of premenopause and menopause include hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, changes in libido, weight fluctuation, dry skin, irritability, fatigue, mood swings, vaginal dryness, body aches, headaches, and bloating.

Hormone therapy is a common route many take to suppress symptoms of menopause. But because of some of the potential drawbacks to hormone therapy (like cost, negative side-effects, and increased health risks), some women prefer to seek natural ways to help the body find balance.

In this blog post, we will go over the ways in which Luna Warrior Daily can help ease and balance symptoms of menopause.

Cinnamon Essential Oil

Thought of more often as a cooking spice than an essential oil, Cinnamon bark oil offers a variety of health benefits.

Many of the benefits of Cinnamon are related to its ability to dilate blood vessels by enhancing nitric oxide function which causes increased blood flow and decreased inflammation (1).

Some of the more researched benefits of Cinnamon oil include:

  • Decrease inflammation
  • Reduce blood sugar
  • Decrease bad cholesterol
  • Stimulate the immune system
  • Fight parasites
  • Stimulate libido
  • Fight infections
  • High antioxidant content

A 2017 study showed how cinnamon bark essential oil can significantly decrease the creation of several protein biomarkers that are involved in skin inflammation and tissue remodeling (2). Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, cinnamon oil can be an effective natural remedy for inflammatory skin concerns like rashes and acne.

Cinnamon bark oil is also known to help relieve stress and anxiety. Linalool, a constituent of Cinnamon oil, is also linked to the body’s production of Vitamin E, which can further help reduce stress and promote more restful sleep (3).

Clove Essential Oil

Clove essential oil has a vast range of benefits from improving blood circulation and reducing inflammation (4) to helping with acne and relieving pain.

One common use for Clove oil is as a broad-spectrum antimicrobial to help keep diseases at bay and help protect your immune system.

Because of its numbing effects, Clove is used today to help relieve the pain and discomfort associated with various dental conditions like dry socket.

The Journal of Immunotoxicology published a study that proved the powerful anti-inflammatory effects of Clove. In this study, it was shown that eugenol, one of the constituents of Clove, can protect the liver against disease. They also observed that eugenol reversed inflammation and cellular oxidation (which speeds up the aging process) [5].

Clove contains 30 times more antioxidants than blueberries per gram. Antioxidants are important because they reverse the damage to the body caused by free radicals. Research has shown that antioxidants slow aging, degeneration, and protect the body against bacteria and viruses.

Clove is known to act as a natural blood thinner that may be therapeutically useful for hypertension, so it is not recommended to combine Clove oil with other blood thinners (6).

Rose Essential Oil

It is common for women in menopause to experience a decrease in libido and a general lowering of body confidence.

Rose essential oil helps balance hormones like serotonin, estrogen, and testosterone (which is important for men and women) [7] and is also known to be used as a natural aphrodisiac and mood lifter helping boost your desires and promote feelings of confidence.

A study in 2009 showed that rose essential oil helps to promote feelings of calm and relaxation (8) which can help to balance cortisol levels and support the adrenal glands. Rose has also shown an ability to decrease blood pressure.

Lavender Essential Oil

Flushing (or hot flashes) is generally considered to be the primary symptom of menopause and is typically the most common complaint in menopausal women.

In a double-blind crossover clinical trial, menopausal women used lavender aromatherapy for 20 minutes twice a day over 12-weeks. In this study, they found that menopause flushing was reduced with the simple use of lavender aromatherapy (9).

Another study in which subjects received an aromatherapy massage once a week for 8 weeks, it was shown that aromatherapy massage with Lavender and Rose essential oils improved hot flashes, depression, and pain in menopausal women (10).

During menopause, sleep-related problems like insomnia are common. In addition to promoting feelings of relaxation and promoting quality sleep, Lavender may also help balance hormones and soothe perineal discomfort.

Vitamin B12

B Vitamins may be helpful to women in menopause because of their wide range of benefits such as reducing stress, protecting the immune system, helping our bodies make energy, uplifting and stabilizing our mood, and helping protect cognitive functions including memory.

During menopause, women are typically more at risk for being deficient in Vitamin B12. This B vitamin is crucial to brain and nervous system function as well as the creation and regulation of our DNA and red blood cells.

Some symptoms of Vitamin B12 deficiency are depression, fatigue, insomnia, constipation, anemia, loss of appetite, weight loss, numbness and tingling in the hands and feet, reflex and/or balance problems, tremors, and irritation (see some correlations?).

Specifically, Vitamin B12 has been shown to increase energy on a cellular level and reduce mental and physical symptoms of fatigue (11) as well as helping to increase the production of serotonin (which is also involved in the body’s production of melatonin, the sleep hormone).

Vitamin E

A placebo double blind-controlled trial was conducted on the effects of Vitamin E on hot flashes. In this study, it was found that Vitamin E made a significant difference in both the severity and the frequency of the patient’s hot flashes after 4 weeks (12).

Research has also shown that Vitamin E can help reduce oxidative stress and may help reduce stress and reduce your risk of depression (13).

Because Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps fight cell-damaging free radicals, it may also help decrease inflammation.

According to physician and researcher Sara Gottfried, MD, Vitamin E can help increase blood supply to the vaginal wall and improve menopausal symptoms like vaginal dryness. She also adds, “and don’t give up- it might be a month before you feel its effects”.

Luna Warrior Daily: Not just for Period Pain

One research study indicated that having a negative view of menopause increased symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, and insomnia (14) so viewing menopause as a normal part of life and practicing self-care and self-love (along with a little help from Luna Warrior) can help you breeze through these years.
