There are some essential oils that have oestrogen-like properties and some that can mimic the actions of oestrogen in the body
Hydrolats have oestrogens in larger quantities
Progesterone-like molecules are only found in hydrolats not essential oils as they are too large to distil but do dissolve in water
All essential oils can be helpful when attempting to balance the hormonal system as essential oils help to balance the whole person – mind body and spirit
