This is what aromatherapy offers us for our endocrine balance.
1 – Against adrenal exhaustion: Black spruce
Many women in their forties think that they experience pre-menopause when in fact they have exhausted adrenal glands! (They can also accumulate both …) The symptoms are indeed similar:
- Intolerance to cold
- Poor blood circulation
- High blood pressure
- Drop of self-esteem
- Joint pain
- Decrease in stomach acid (hence eczema, indigestion, swelling …)
- Muscular weakness
- Need excessive sleep
- Decreased immunity
The stress of managing a professional life and a family life is enough to demand excessive production of cortisol and to pump adrenal. Excess cortisol is also manifested by weight gain that adds to other symptoms and can also intensify the problem.

Get good massage, by acupressure or acupuncture, to be treated with herbs like the wild Yam, the Siberian ginseng, the licorice, but most impotantly, rub energetically the lower back, above the waist, with the fists and massage the soles of your feet with black spruce essential oil (picea mariana) as often as you want.
