Book SynopsisAlleviate the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause with simple and safe DIY diffusions, tonics, and tinctures made with essential oils, from "a true innovator and thought leader in the field of women's hormone health" (JJ Virgin, New York Times bestselling author of The Virgin Diet). What if menopause didn't have to be a struggle? Your body is always changing--necessarily and beautifully--throughout life.

The solution is not to medicate the changes, but instead get to the root cause of what's really going on in the body.
