Essential Oils can support healthy sexual function along with helping the reproductive system function well. It may be useful to start using some of these oils a few months prior to trying to conceive.
Also, before we dive into this, I would like to state the reason of why I often list many oils for one purpose. EO’s are not cookie cutter same. An oil will work great for one person and may do nothing for another for the same issue. This is because we are all not the same, our body system is different and just as we have different preferences, so does the reaction to a particular oil. Try different oils if the one stated does not help. Use your intuition. I often refer to the oils as energy medicine – if possible tune into the your body and see if the oil that you are using or thinking about would be helpful.
Men: Most people tend to associate pregnancy with just women, so why am I writing about oils for men? Healthy sperms are needed to fertilize an egg. It might seem intuitive to you, but believe it or not, it took me a while to get this basic concept. So, I started researching oils that can support men in particular and here is what I found…
Alright, on to the oils…
IDAHO BLUE SPRUCE: It is a wonderful oil to balance the hormones and testosterone levels. It is deeply grounding and spiritually enhancing. Native Americans used it to relax muscles and used it support spiritual rituals and ceremonies. It has many uses including increasing energy & libido, heightening sexual pleasure and arousal.
How to Use: Diffuse in the bedroom, apply it neat or diluted on the thighs, lower abdomen and shoulders. Also apply it to the sexual vita flex points on the ankles.
MISTER: Blend of Sage, Fennel, Blue Yarrow, Peppermint, Lavender and Myrtle.
Wonderful blend to support balancing of hormones and testosterone levels. Helps support masculinity and better sexual performance. Aids in prostrate health. Supports respiratory and cardiovascular health. Brings in mental clarity. Can be used by women as well.
How to Use: Diffuse in the bedroom an hour or two before bedtime. Apply neat or diluted ( with sensation massage oil) on the inner thighs, shoulders or even directly to the male genitals. It leaves a cool and tingly sensation. It can also be used as a natural cologne.
There are many more oils that can support men, but these two would be a good place to start.
Women: If there was one oil that I could recommend pre-pregnancy, it would be Progessence Plus Serum. It is not exactly an oil, it is a serum that YL makes specifically for women.
It supports over all wellness for women and also harmonizes women’s natural cycle. It is perfect to support the endocrine system. It can be used all month long, specially helpful during those special days. It can be used by women of all ages. If you have your period, you can use it.
It is made with Essential Oils and Wild Yam extract to support over all wellbeing, relaxation and moods.
How To Use: Apply 2-4 drops on the neck or the lower abdomen or the lower back. Follow instructions on the bottle.
I am also going to write a little about other related factors that can help with conception.
- Non Toxic Cleaners: Our skin is the largest organ and will absorb anything that it comes in contact with. So, the cleaners that you are using at home play a huge factor in it. I am a stickler for reading labels and will encourage you to do the same. I initially started to make my own but with growing family needs, I started to get the Thieves Line that YL makes.Thieves household cleaner has replaced all my cleaning supplies at home. I don’t have to worry about harsh chemicals that me or my toddler comes in contact with. It is highly concentrated, so a little goes a long way, hence it is super budget friendly. I will highly encourage you to try it.
- Diet: Can’t stress the importance of eating clean, unprocessed food as much as you can. In addition, you can support your body with good supplements like NingXia Red, good quality Multivitamins, good strain of probiotics, Vit B and ofcourse rest and life balance.
We take 1-2 oz of NingXia Red everyday for overall wellbeing. It has high antioxidants which help fight free radicals that we come in contact with daily. It helps support the immune system as well.
