7 Essential Oils That Balance Hormones & How To Use Them

Hormonal imbalances might affect both men and women, and cause numerous symptoms, including fatigue, mood swings, fertility issues, weight gain, depression, insomnia.

The following seven essential oils can help you treat hormonal imbalances:
