Hot Flashes? Night Sweats? Sleepless Nights?
My hot flashes have never really been that bad; I would just all of a sudden get warm and turn on the air conditioner in the car, in the middle of winter. My kids would keep blankets in the car and my husband would dress in layers. There I would be in a short sleeve shirt with the A/C blowing full blast listening to my families teeth chatter.
The flashes seemed to disappear once I went gluten free. Well, mostly away, I would still be warm enough at night while sleeping that I would keep one leg out from under the covers. But for the most part I seemed to be doing better.
About a month ago I was laying in bed and I felt like I was going to explode from the heat I was generating inside me! All night long I would go from roasting to freezing, covers on, covers off. My sleep was NOT good. This continued night after night. Finally, a friend of mine told me she had put a blend of oils on her feet at night and slept like a baby! The blend is a doTERRA blend called, “Solace.” (Click Solace to learn more)
This wonderful blend of oils was created for women to help with hormone health, PMS and Menopause. I have a neighbor who carries it in her purse and whips it out whenever she feels a hot flash coming on and rolls it on the back of her neck. Hum…. I wonder if it could work for me.
That night I rolled on Solace on the bottoms of each foot and on the back of my neck. I crawled into bed and……wait for it….slept like a menopausal woman with NO hot flashes. That stuff turned down my internal furnace like magic! Now I use it every night. AHHHH sweet relief!
