Men’s hormones can play a major role in their emotions like anger, stress, shutting down, low energy, or low/no libido. Hormones play an important role in regulating our body functions. They also affect our moods, energy levels, sleep patterns, libido, and even our overall health. In this article, I will discuss essential oils that can be used to support men’s healthy hormone levels.

5 signs of hormone imbalance in Men
Some signs to watch for when men’s hormones are out of whack include:
- shutting down
- low energy
- low/no libido
Reasons for these symptoms may be caused by low testosterone or high cortisol.
Testosterone plays a key role in muscle growth, bone density, fat loss, sperm count, erectile function, and more. In addition, it helps maintain blood pressure, heart rate, and metabolism. When your testosterone level drops below normal range, you may experience symptoms like decreased strength or stamina, reduced interest in sex, increased weight gain, hair loss, and other issues related to aging.
Cortisol is another type of stress hormone which regulates many bodily processes including digestion, immune system, brain activity, etc. Too much cortisol can cause inflammation, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. If your cortisol level rises above normal range, you might feel anxious, irritable, tired, depressed, and have trouble sleeping.
How do Essential Oils Help with balancing men’s hormones?
Essential oils contain volatile compounds called phytochemicals. Phyto-chemicals are plant chemicals found naturally in plants. The human body cannot produce them on its own so we need to consume them through food or supplements. They play an important role in our health as they help regulate various functions within the body.
While it’s important to seek medical help when needed, essential oils can play a role in naturally supporting healthy hormone levels. The following essential oil blend can support healthy hormone levels in men.
