You’re going throughout your day and everything is fine and then suddenly - you have a slight tinge of cramping and nausea hits! Then what? You’re left not knowing if you should get up and move, push past it or nurture it! Well we at Eurospa Aromatics have just the tips you can use to get natural fast relief for that sudden and annoying nausea.
First of all, make sure that it’s not dangerous. If your cramping is severe, localized or accompanied by any other strange or sudden symptoms, please do the right thing and see your doctor. This isn’t an area to play around with and you want to be safe.
But if what you feel is minor cramping and minor nausea, then there are some things you can do. In the case of minor situations, it’s usually due to a block in your intestinal system, a virus, a bacteria or even stress.
In the case of it being a block in your system, (or any of the above reasons for that matter), try a gentle yoga sequence for digestion. This one is very helpful. The key is not to push yourself, but to twist, cleanse, bring in oxygen and move things along.
For a virus or bacteria, it’s about remaining comfortable as you wait it out and help the toxins to leave your body efficiently. One way to do this is to take activated charcoal. Talk to your local supplement specialist, Chinese medicine/Ayurvedic/Natural Medicine Practitioner for amount and frequencies. But the way it works, is that the charcoal attaches to the poison and escorts it out of your body.
As for stress, you’d be surprised at how many stomach issues are related to stress. The key here is to get still and quiet as you breathe deeply, bringing more oxygen and calm to your digestive system and blood. Try to take at least 10 slow, medium to deep breathes, aiming to stay as relaxed as possible.
Thankfully, there’s also a way to bring comfort and relief to your body and symptoms regardless of why they are there. This is through eucalyptus, heat and cooling. Here’s how:
We have formulated a eucalyptus oil shower spray that penetrates the skin and circulate throughout the body in a matter of minutes simply using steam to do so. And if you're suffering from stomach ailments or nausea, this will come as a relief, as you likely can't handle anything orally anyway.
All you have to do, is run a hot bath or shower, and add a few sprays of our shower mist into the actual steam, or even onto the walls of your shower area. The little essential oil molecules with be activated and inhaled by you, quickly easing your pain and discomfort. So simple and no gross syrups to drink either!

Natural Tips for Feel Great In Spite of Perimenopause
Being a woman comes with a lifetime of interesting bodily changes that we have simply come to accept. But perimenopause is a middle ground, not-quite-here-or-there space that can be really uncomfortable and leave you frustrated at best. We at Eurospa, want to bring you some comforting tips for dealing with this hormone shift in a way that supports you and helps you feel good naturally.
Food for Hormones
The best medicine is preventative and the most preventative medicine is found in the food that you eat. You should strive to eat a balance of good fats, complex carbohydrates and protein. Also, make sure to have plenty of fruits and vegetables at every meal, including breakfast. It’s best to eat three meals a day and two or more snacks in order to keep your blood sugar stable. The most important thing to remember is to reduce carbohydrates especially refined carbohydrates and sugars.
The Right kind of Greens.
If you haven’t added spirulina to your diet - this is the day to do it! This blue-green algae comes from lakes and ponds and contains large amounts of calcium, magnesium and potassium. These essential hormone-balancing nutrients will reduce cramps, mood problems, breast tenderness and overall inflammation.
Herbs are miraculous because they share a similar molecular structure to our hormones, allowing them to support our hormone production by slowing them down or even copying what our own hormones do depending on the body’s unique needs. Some herbs that can help reduce menopause symptoms include st. john’s wort, black cohosh, passionflower, chasteberry, wild yam, ashwagandha and vitex. Vitex has been shown to help a myriad of PMS symptoms including irritability, depressed mood, anger, headache, bloating, breast fullness, skin disorder, fatigue, drowsiness and sleeplessness. Vitex is most effective taken as a tincture, but is also useful when included in medicinal herbal teas.
Get Moving Especially When You’re Feeling ‘OFF’.
Be active. Because of your fluctuating estrogen levels, your body will tend to hold on to fat. Additionally, fat actually produces estrogen, which can create even more fat. So it’s easy to get stuck in a frustrating cycle if you’re not active. Moving your body has a major impact on your weight, other menopausal symptoms and your overall health. Gentle exercise can be helpful too, especially if your adrenal glands are overworked and you constantly feel fatigued. Movement is also medicine so find a movement you enjoy and be consistent!
For the Hot Flashes
Keep the hot flashes at bay. Those up and down hormones cause you to feel out of nowhere, so be prepared! Be sure to drink a lot of water so the heat doesn’t tax your system. Also be sure to stock up on a eucalyptus shower mist, that you can either spray into the steam of the shower to invigorate you, or for you to spray around you as the hot flashes hit. Eucalyptus is cooling and calming; the perfect helper to this crazy season.
Maca is a tuber plant native to South America. It's an excellent superfood for hormonal imbalances like menopause and PMS. Maca is extremely high in calcium, potassium, iron, fiber and protein. Maca creates balance by regulating the hormones via the hypothalamus and pituitary glands in the brain. This can help with symptoms like hot flashes, low libido and PMS. Maca should not be consumed by women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), as it may have a subtle androgenic (testosterone-boosting) effect.
You don’t have to suffer through the changes. Simply learn to support them. In the meantime, we are glad to be available to help in the process with our natural eucalyptus products for the home. For more info, contact us at Eurospa today!
