Clarycalm essential oils for your uterus
I am a skeptic. I’m not sure most of the products on the market work. Pharmaceutical products, natural products etc. and I love proving myself wrong. I started collecting essential oils when I became a Mom. I suddenly felt a burning desire to search for natural ingredients that have proven results. I always liked the way the oils smelled, but wanted to move past smell and into therapeutic use.
Therapeutic grade matters. Not all essential oils are the same. The process in which the oils are derived matters. Cold pressing typically produces therapeutic grade essential oils and any heating destroys the therapeutic properties. I have been drawn to doTerra oils because they do extensive testing and product therapeutic grade oils and blends.

The first essential oil I started with was eucalyptus. My kids were going through a rough patch of respiratory stuff and after reading that vicks rub contained turpentine something or other I went to therapeutic grade eucalputus. Let’s just say my oil interest has snowballed a bit since then.
Essential oil blends are some of my favorite things! I bought past tense, a headache blend, and I don’t know if it actually works or if it’s all in my head…but it works on my crazy headaches! So, why not a menstrual blend? I bought clarycalm to try out and here it is! This is literally my bottle in the photos.

I really love doTerra oil blends and this roller ball bottle. I can apply it in a flash and the ball feels great too. It’s massaging and usually feels cool on my skin. The clarycalm blend smells great and I have spoken to so many menstruators who swear by the formula that I’m kind of excited to get my period!
clarycalm ingredients: Clary Sage Flower, Lavender Flower, Bergamot Peel, Roman Chamomile Flower, Ylang Ylang Flower, Cedarwood Wood, Geranium Plant, Fennel Seed, Carrot Seed, Palmarosa Herb, and Vitex Leaf/Berry essential oils.
How does it smell?
To be honest, it smells like something I would find at the spa. I literally rubbed it around the outside of my nostrils when I got it in the mail and while this isn’t the application recommended by doTerra…I really enjoy just breathing it in! I love the smell.
doTerra does recommend using clarycalm on your temples, back of your neck and bottoms of feet. If you’re putting it on the bottoms of your feet I’d use socks…oil is slippery. They also say to use it on your abdomen for menstrual symptoms.

- Use clarycalm during or leading up to your menstrual cycle, apply to abdomen to experience a soothing and calming massage.
- doTerra says this is great “During moments of heat, apply to the skin for a cooling, soothing effect.” I believe they’re referring to clarycalm for menopause, or hormonal hot flashes.
- Diffuse in an aromatherapy diffuser for a calming aroma that helps soothe heightened emotions.
- Not on the doTerra site, many women have said that they like this blend for use during labor and post-partum! Check with your midwife or oil friendly OBGYN.
How to use clarycalm
1. One way is in an essential oil diffuser. For this method, you don’t get any on your skin and simply enjoy the aroma.
2. To use this on your skin, or topically, you can use it straight as I do or mix it with fractioned coconut oil. doTerra reports that this will reduce any skin sensitivity to the blend. Fractioned coconut oil will also turn this into a great massage product!
3. For making a clarycalm spray. There is debate about spraying essential oils. Why not just diffuse or use topically? I don’t know, some people love to spray things. So, doTerra typically recommends simply mixing the oil with water in a dark glass spray bottle and misting. Downside? The oil floats on the water and you have to mix it to make sure you’re not just spritizing water.
Some essential oil lovers recommend mixing witch hazel or grain alcohol, the drinking kind, in a limited amount to mix the oil with the water. Otherwise, the oil sits on the water. Rubbing alcohol is never recommended and doTerra does not recommend either of these methods for emulsion.
Yeah, I like this. With how well the headache blend works I will be spreading this liberally during my cycle. Maybe even not during my cycle.
I will let you know how this works after a few months of use!
Their marketing could use an update
About the “monthly blend for women” marketing. Now, I know some people may be unwilling to say uterus, vagina, vulva or menstruation. But, this limits the product’s audience. Your womanly time of the month is outdated and does not include people in the population who don’t feel like a woman.
I hope they re-market in the future to say “menstrual blend” “uterus blend” or something of that nature. I’m sure you could come up with something creative.
Where to buy
Shopping for doTerra oils. I do not recommend buying from retailers like Amazon. Years ago I bought aveda shampoo from Amazon in an attempt to get the same product my local salon carried at a discount. What I received was definitely not the product and I’m sure someone cut the real product with an inexpensive shampoo or something…no way to be absolutely sure what you receive.
What is in this photo?
Love the pad in these photos? It’s a reusable menstrual pad, one of my favorites and I have a list of reputable reusable menstrual pad shops here.
Read about the toxic nature of disposable pads.
The other pink, clear and yellow items are reusable menstrual cups that get used like a tampon and do not pose the risk of TSS or have the chemicals and plastics found in disposable products.
I’m happy to take comments! Have you tried this? What are your thoughts?
