When you feel beaten by PMS symptoms, having a bit of aromatherapeutic expertise to hand can help you to feel better in yourself. Michelle Roques O’Neil is one of the most celebrated aromatherapists in the world, and in a career spanning over 30 years, she’s identified that one blend in particular hits a comforting note with PMS sufferers:

“One of the best essential oils for PMS pain is clary sage, diluted in almond and applied over the stomach. Clary sage is at the same time uplifting and soothing, and you’d use the almond oil as a carrier to dilute it. You would need about 2-3 drops to a tablespoon of almond oil, although there are certainly other carriers such as grapeseed or coconut oil that you could use too.”

“If you’d prefer to use something pre-blended, my Cherish Skin Repair Serum, £46, is particularly brilliant when suffering from PMS as it’s hormonally balancing and has a gentle sedating yet inspiriting effect on the psyche. It will bolster you when you’re feeling fragile.”
