We’ve all heard of essential oils, but how can they help us throughout our cycle?

I’ve had so many listeners write in asking this question so I’ve brought Alice Nicholls, the Aussie queen of essential oils, onto today’s episode so you can have the right answers. Alice has traveled all around Australia and the globe to help educate communities on the power of essential oils. She has an amazing understanding of how essential oils can impact our cycle, fertility, and overall health and wellness.

Throughout this episode, Alice talks about her personal journey with essential oils, how oils can be used through diffusion or placed directly on our skin, the essential oil practices that can alleviate menstruation symptoms, the oil she is currently obsessed with, essential oils and fertility, resources for listeners, and so much more.

[Cycle Day 23 – Inner Autumn]

Alice Nicholls is a powerful example of what it means to actively embrace the succession of death and rebirth in life. Her most important work is not in the telling or teaching, but in inviting and involving women in movements that will shake them from weak comforts, self-effacing identities and half-lived lives, into the space of conscious self-creation. The through-line in the digital clubs, programs and coaching experiences Alice leads is sovereignty, self-reliance and empowerment.

This woman lives in unswayable knowing that when women cultivate communion with nature as a foundation for their lives, they water the only environment where true health, abundance, prosperity, joy, peace and freedom reside. ‘Going first, regardless’ is how she greets life; with a penchant for embracing consciously chosen personal challenges that bring the precious polarities of humility alongside both physical and personal growth.
