208 Essential Oil for Hormones with Dr. Mariza Snyder

Tags: ,

Hi, I’m Alex!

If you need a little help to start playing by your own rules, there’s a few ways we can work together more closely.


Essential oils—you hear about them everywhere! Whether you’re a skeptic, a novice, or an experienced EO user, today’s show is packed with useful and practical information that you don’t want to miss! As the child of a hippie mom in Oregon in the 70’s, you can imagine that essential oils were, and still are, a huge part of my life. I turn to them daily, keep them placed strategically around me, and take them with me everywhere!

Dr. Mariza Snyder joins me today as we discuss her new book, The Essential Oils Hormone Solution. She’s a return guest to the show, a good friend of mine, and she’s just a super fun and brilliant person to be around. She firmly believes that you can balance your hormones by using essential oils and self-care rituals. Her goal is to help people transform their lives and become the CEO of their own healthcare. In this episode, we discuss stress, energy fatigue, concentration, cravings, libido, anxiety, toxicity, and more. Join us for this jam-packed conversation, and get yourself a copy of her 7th book!

Show Highlights:

  • Hormones and stress, and the effects on our bodies
  • How those “clutch the pearls” moments reset your system to go into survival mode
  • How stress puts at risk your cardiovascular system, digestive system, respiratory system, reproductive system–and creates a system of emergency so powerful that your immune system is shut down
  • How to reset your hormones and get clarity on your stress and overwhelm
  • Cortisol–the hormone that hijacks your brain
  • Why we have to break the pattern and change the loop
  • How essential oils are used as a “pattern interrupt,” to calm down at times and to energize at other times
  • Why you must use essential oils safely and with intention
  • The aromatic use of essential oils is the fastest and most effective way to use them
  • For focus, memory, and concentration, try Dr. Mariza’s “Get Stuff Done” blend: two drops each of rosemary, frankincense, grapefruit, and peppermint—in a diffuser
  • For heading off cravings, try Dr. Mariza’s “Power and Energy Combo:” peppermint with grapefruit (this is perfect for use as a roller blend)
  • For libido issues, try these in a massage oil blend: rose, ylang-ylang, and jasmine (Dr. Mariza’s favorite blend is sandalwood, cinnamon, and wild orange)
  • The problem of anxiety: more than 40 million US adults have been diagnosed with anxiety disorders, and overdose deaths from anxiety meds have skyrocketed in recent years
  • For anxiety, try lavender, clary sage, and bergamot. Dr. Mariza’s favorite blend is vetiver, lavender, sweet marjoram, and Roman chamomile, which can take her from a state of panic to a state of calm in 60 seconds!
  • The profound benefits of the powerful essential oil, Copaiba
  • With toxicity, avoidance is the key; try cilantro, grapefruit, lemon, cypress, and turmeric
  • Consider making over your cleaning products, medicine cabinet, and personal care products
  • How cypress oil allows for massive emotional release and is good for edema
