Menopause: Three essential oils to ease hot flushes – and peri-menopausal symptoms


Key tips to help ease hot flushes is to sip on cold or iced drinks, take luke-warm showers or bath, sleep in bed with layers (not a duvet), and wear loose, silk pyjamas to bed.

Other measures include keeping the room cool by using a fan, reducing caffeine and alcohol intake, and to use cold gel packs.

If essential oils – and these other techniques – aren’t helping your hot flashes as much as you would like, another treatment option is hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

To begin HRT, you first need to discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.
