Perimenopause and menopause is a natural stage in a women’s life whereabout she experiences a hormonal shift. This rite of passage for all women should be celebrated and nurtured.
Perimenopause is a period before menopause, generally experienced in mid to late 40’s when our hormone levels and ovarian processes start to slow down, leading to symptoms of irregular menstrual flow. Levels of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone shift, and we can experience symptoms of hot flashes, fatigue, skin sensitivity and change in emotions and moods among other symptoms.
What better way to nurture this natural change then utilising natural plant botanicals that have been passed down from ancient sisterhoods for centuries.
There are a few key essential oils, present on the Bellabaci MENO-FREE range that assist with the symptoms of menopause – mood changes, stress and skin sensitivity.
