Underactive Thyroid and Essential Oils

How and Where to Apply Essential Oils

Essential oils are used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. Essential oils can be applied topically or diffused aromatically.
Applied Topically
Due to the natural molecular composition of EOs, they’re easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically, sometimes diluted with a carrier oil and sometimes “neat” (undiluted). Once they’re applied, essential oils can have almost an immediate, localized effect to the area where applied. They have restorative and calming properties and can be used very effectively in massage and beauty therapy. EOs are also natural disinfectants, many are antimicrobial and the similar chemical structure of essential oils allows them to be absorbed into the bloodstream via the skin for internal benefit throughout the body.
The bottoms of our feet boast the largest pores on our body and allow quick absorption. Note the thyroid areas of the feet in this diagram.

2 Essential Oils Protocols for Underactive Thyroid

Protocol 1
Two blends used a week at a time, alternating to the next. Make sure you are using quality essential oils.
Blend 1 (week 1)
1 part Lemongrass
1 part Myrrh (can substitute with Peppermint)
1 part carrier oil
*Frankincense
In a 5ml roller bottle. Apply topically over thyroid area at the base of the neck and reflexology points (below big toe), massage in 3x daily.
*Whenever I can, I layer a drop of Frankincense over the Lemongrass/Myrrh blend. Frankincense will help the other EOs along and calm inflammation.
At the end of the first week, begin Blend 2 and apply in the same manner. After week 2, begin Blend 1 again.
Blend 2 (week 2)
1 part Zen
1 part Geranium
1 part carrier oil
*Frankincense
Protocol 2
25 drops Lemongrass
25 drops Clove
10 drops Frankincense
25 drops carrier oil
In a 5ml roller bottle. Apply topically over thyroid area at the base of the neck and reflexology points (below big toe), massage in 3x daily.
FYI: on the thyroid protocol. If you have sensitive skin, dilute both blends well. Daily use on your neck can cause skin irritation for those with sensitive skin tendencies. I love applying to thyroid area of the feet AND Frankincense over the thyroid topically (with either blend) – Frank is very, very gentle more so than Lavender but a great healer!
One last word to the wise, these two essential oils protocols are not meant to replace your thyroid medication. The hope is that essential oils will help in balancing your hormones and helping you to live well despite your condition. If you’re currently on medication for hypothyroid, don’t go off it without consulting with your doctor first. Certain essential oils are not recommended while pregnant and breastfeeding.
If any of the information I shared rings true for you, please do your due diligence and investigate your symptoms until you have answers!
