How To Use CBD with Peppermint Oil for Hot Flashes

cbd with peppermint for hot flashes

Hot flashes are one of the most annoying but also most common of all menopause symptoms. Roughly 75% of menopausal women experiencing these sudden spikes in body temperature leaving them feeling flushed, sweaty and a little cranky.

Unfortunately it’s impossible to stop the symptoms of menopause entirely, but there is a simple, natural remedy that can help alleviate those uncomfortable hot flashes and reduce their frequency…

Enter CBD with peppermint essential oil for hot flashes.

 

CBD WITH PEPPERMINT OIL FOR HOT FLASHES

The reason why menopausal women experience hot flashes is because of a change in the neurochemistry in the hypothalamus – the part of the brain which is responsible for controlling body temperature. It is because of this association with the hypothalamus that SSRIs and SNRIs are often prescribed for hot flashes with the thinking being that these reduce vasomotor responses.

But for many women these are not an option.  The side-effect profile of these types of drugs are more often than not worse than just toughing it out with the hot flashes themselves.  But this is where CBD can be of great help.  Although there aren’t studies that have specifically tested CBD for hot flashes, it does have an influence on the body’s serotonin system.  CBD works very much the same way as SSRIs and SNRIs do in helping reduce vasomotor responses and could be the reason why so many women swear by it for relieving their hot flashes.

When combining the vasomotor effects of CBD with the cooling and soothing effects, peppermint oil, you have a doubly whammy of hot-flash-busting going on.  Not only does both of these reduce the discomfort of hot flashes, but because of their analgesic effects, when used together, CBD with peppermint oil can also help reduce the discomfort of cramping muscles that so many menopausal women experience.

  • 2 drops geranium essential oil
  • 2 drops clary sage essential oil

Add the essential oils and CBD oil to the roller bottle then top it off with your carrier oil of choice.  The great thing about using a roller bottle is that it’s small and can be carrier around with you wherever you go while also easy to apply to your pulse points or other specific areas of your body. 

Roll the oil where you need some cooling relief or roll it onto the soles of your feet. The skin under your feet are very absorbent so its a great way to get full-body benefits from your CBD with peppermint oil. 

 

CBD with Peppermint Oil Hot Flash Busting Lip Balm

What You Need:

  • 10 – 13 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 20 drops Geovana CBD Menstrual Relief 1,500 mg CBD oil
  • 2 tsp grated beeswax or beeswax pastilles, or 1 tsp candelilla wax for vegan option 
  • 10 ml of sweet almond oil
  • 2,5 ml shea butter or cocoa butter
  • lip balm tubes or tins (makes about 50 ml of product)

 

How To Use:

Put the beeswax/candelilla wax, sweet almond oil and shea/cocoa butter in a double boiler or in a small glass bowl over a pan of hot water.  Make sure that the bowl doesn’t touch the bottom of the pan or the oils could burn. 

Gently heat the mixture until everything is melted together.  Make sure that the water only warms the oils enough to melt them – no boiling! – too much heat will destroy the consistency of the oils.

Remove the mixture from the heat and let it cool down for about 20-30 seconds.  Add the CBD and peppermint oil and gently stir through.  Don’t use anything made from metal.  Once mixed, immediately pour the CBD with peppermint oil balm into containers. 

Use it as a cooling lip balm or, just like with the CBD with Peppermint Oil Hot Flash Busting roller, pat some of the balm on pulse point or where you feel you need relief.
