The Truth about Your Thyroid and Essential Oils: What NO Endocrinologist Will Tell You
The thyroid is one of the most important parts of the human body, it is something we often overlook, to say the least. It is located in your neck just above your collarbone.
This endocrine gland is one of the largest in our bodies and is used to regulate our metabolism and control the circulation of calcium in our bodies. When something goes wrong in this gland it is a big problem. If your thyroid hormones become imbalanced your body is in for some severe negative effects.
Of course, some cases will have to be dealt with using traditional treatment depending on the severity but some minor issues with your thyroid can actually be resolved using essential oils. Essential oils can come in handy for a number of things and have become something common in most ‘healthy’ homes here lately.
The following essential oils are ones that have been known for their ability to improve certain glands (everything from the thyroid gland to the hypothalamus):
Frankincense – This is an oil that comes from the Boswellia trees found in Oman. It is used for improving the function of the pineal gland, hypothalamus, and the pituitary gland.
Basil – This is an oil that comes from basil leaves found here in the United States. It stimulates the functioning of things like your adrenal glands, pancreas, pineal, and pituitary gland.
Rosemary – This is an oil that comes from the leaves of the Rosemary, a plant that is indigenous to Morocco. It helps promote the function of most glands and can also improve brain functioning.
Clove – This oil is one that comes from clove buds and is found in Madagascar. It has the ability to improve the function of the thyroid.
When it comes to using these oils for your glands all you need to do is rub a drop of whichever you prefer over where they are in your body. For example, I myself rub a drop of myrrh essential oil mixed with coconut oil on my thyroid are (lower front neck) every morning. You can use essential oils topically or automatically. That is up to you, I prefer topical use myself.
Of course, if your issue is severe please do not hesitate to see a doctor. Only you know when your problems have gotten to that point. For more information on essential oils and thyroid health please take the time to watch the video below.
