Essential Oils Prevents PMS

A pill containing a mix of essential oils can significantly reduce the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS).

Researchers performed a randomized, controlled trial that looked at 120 women. They found that administering of 1 or 2 grams of essential fatty acids to patients with PMS resulted in a significant decrease in symptoms.

According to Eurekalert:

"Women who were given capsules containing 2 grams of a combination of gamma linolenic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, other polyunsaturated acids and vitamin E reported significantly eased PMS symptoms at both 3 and 6 months after they began the treatment. Few adverse events were recorded and these were mild, insignificant and did not appear to be directly related to the medication."
