BONUS 117: Essential Oils for Fertility 101

August 25, 2017

Topics in this episode:

Today’s guest is Stephanie Risinger, a holistic wellness advocate and host of the Holistic Fertility and Wellness podcast. We discuss essential oils for fertility.

  • What are essential oils?
  • Why did you personally start using essential oils?
  • It’s my understanding essential oils can be taken one of three ways: aromatic, topical, and internal. Can you walk us through each method?
  • Can’t essential oils be dangerous if not taken properly? And who determines ‘properly’? (Check out BONUS 9 and BONUS 118 for Dr. Rodgers’ take on natural supplements.)
  • How do you know if you have a good essential oil? What are the top items to check for?
  • Is there any hard science or research that backs up the effectiveness of essential oils, particularly for fertility?
  • There are many essential oils out there, but let’s talk in detail about a few that fall into categories relevant to fertility:
    • Hormone balance: Geranium, Clary Sage, Thyme, Fennel, Lemon
    • Blood sugar balance: Grapefruit, Cinnamon, Peppermint
    • Libido: Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Clary Sage
    • Stress reduction: Citrus oils (Lemon, Wild Orange), Lavender, Frankincense
  • Are you able to share any success stories about formerly infertile couples following the use of essential oils?
  • Is there anything else you’d like to add?
