Herbs for Women’s Hormone Health

Herbs add vital nutrients and minerals that support our body’s natural functions, including hormone balance. The following herbs naturally cater to women’s wellness. 

Dong Quai

Also known as Female Ginseng, this herb has a very long and rich history of use. It has purple stems and beautiful flowers that bloom in the summertime, but its roots hold the medicine. In TCM, Dong Quai is used to treat PMS symptoms, hormonal imbalances, infertility and low libido. 

Dong Quai is featured in our Female Harmony tincture.

Lifestyle Practices for Women’s Hormone Health

Adopting healthy habits and mindful daily practices are crucial for supporting balanced hormones and overall wellness.

EAT VIBRANTLY

Including healthy fats into a well-rounded diet is integral to hormone wellness. Without essential fatty acids, the body cannot produce the hormones it needs to function. Add vitamins and minerals that support hormone balance by seed-cycling. Click here to try Seed-Cycling Bliss Balls and learn more about this practice.

RELEASE STRESS

Mindful activities, such as journaling and meditation, allow us to acknowledge what’s taking up space in our minds and give us an opportunity to let it go. Releasing stress helps ease production of stress hormones like cortisol. Cultivating moments of rest and ease in our day can help our nervous system relax.

QUALITY SLEEP

Without rest, we can’t repair. Human Growth Hormone, which plays an important role in cell repair, is released during sleep. Create a wind-down routine that works for you and try to get around 7-8 hours of sleep each night. And remember, rest and repeat. Your body will reward you after restful sleep.

DAILY MOVEMENT

Moving our bodies daily supports endocrine system balance and cortisol management. Remember to choose daily movement that sparks joy! It doesn’t need to be a vigorous sweat-session every time to reap the benefits. Something as simple as a short walk around the block can help support your health.

Achieve Female Harmony

We hope these holistic tips for women’s hormonal health provide some helpful insight and have left you feeling inspired to begin cultivating balance in your hormonal health! If you're looking for a place to start, check out our women's health collection!
