Hypothyroidism In Control With The Use Of Essential Oils

One of my family members have been dealing with hypothyroidism for quite some time.  Thyroid issues cause many problems and can be quite hard to get under control, even with medications.

Hypothyroidism is an under active, low thyroid.  Your thyroid makes hormones that controls the way your body uses energy.


When this hormone is low, it can make you feel tired and week and if left untreated can raise your cholesterol levels, which in turn can make you have a heart attack.

You may feel tired, week, or depressed, you can feel very cold or hot, and can cause weight gain.

The family member I mentioned above, had contacted me about my essential oils when she was not noticing a difference after using her medication for quite some time.  I told her that I had read  something about using Lemongrass and Peppermint for a low thyroid.  She started using it along with her medications.  She immediately saw a difference in the hot and cold flashes.   


Recently, I noticed she was losing a lot of weight and asked her what she was doing different and she said that she had started using two drops each of Lemongrass and Peppermint on her neck (front) regularly, morning and night, and has been cutting back her medication slowly.

I was amazed at what these two oils were doing for her, and I know she feels so much better, especially knowing she is using a healthier alternative.

I write about these success stories, because it makes me so happy that my suggestions about alternative healthcare are helping so many.  I feel like my life purpose is to spread the word about essential oils, because I know that it is helping people and they feel better knowing that they are using something healthy!!  I hope many others have seen success with healthier alternatives to medicine.  I would love to hear your stories if you would like to share!!!

  4. just wondering if this would work using a roller bottle with just the lemongrass and peppermint- no FCO? Just for convenience.
    Thanks~

  5. A roller bottle works great, but I'd still mix FCO or Olive Oil because Lemongrass is a hot oil.

  7. Fascinating...I'd like to say that I had a VERY similar experience recently, during my first encounter with doTERRA oils! I suffer from a severely underactive thyroid due to Hashimoto's disease. Nothing, not even my medication, works much at all.

    I selected Peppermint and Lemongrass simply because the scents appealed to me and my gut told me they would be good together for my thyroid. I rubbed a ton of both oils on to the thyroid (undiluted, oops--and boy did it burn!)...the next morning and for the following 3 days I DROPPED WEIGHT! I mean, dropped at least one entire dress size. It was like a miracle was occurring before my very eyes.

    The ONLY thing I could attribute the rapid change to was these two oils!! After a few days the effects wore off. I tried the oils while on vacation at a friend's house, and haven't used them since.

    Did a quick google search to see if I was imagining things, and lo and behold, found this post. Thanks for confirming!!!! I've ordered both the oils and cannot wait to try them again. I shall report back!

  8. Will this help if your not taking any medication? Recently my mom has been tired and in the borderline of high cholesterol. She is worried about her thyroid and told her doctor but her doctor didn't check.

    1. Yes it can help and Lemongrass is also great for high cholesterol. I would make sure she sees a doctor though if she doesn't see improvements. Just to make sure that is the reason she is feeling this way.

  9. How much FCO and how many drops of oils if you want to make up a roller bottle for this?

    1. Use equal drops of each oil and then fill with FCO. I usually use 10 to 15 drops of each oil
