Essential oils, comprised from plants (mostly herbs and flowers), can help with many thyroid-related symptoms, particularly those associated with hypothyroidism. The easiest way to use essential oils is in a warm bath; you simply put a few drops of the oil into the bath, and sit and relax in it for about ten minutes. The aroma from the oils can also be inhaled (put a few drops in a bowl of hot water, lean over with a towel over your head, and breathe); diffused (using a lamp ring, or a ceramic diffuser—that thing that looks like a fondue pot); or sprayed into the air as a mist. You can also rub the oils onto the soles of your feet (where the largest pores are), which will get them working fast!

The following essential oils are known to have calming, sedative, and/or antidepressant effects for hypothyroid-related depression: ylang-ylang, neroli, jasmine, orange blossom, cedarwood, lavender (a few drops on your pillow will also help you sleep), chamomile, marjoram, geranium, patchouli, rose, sage, clary sage, and sandalwood.

The following scents are considered helpful in combating fatigue: clove, ravensara, rosemary, thyme, and basil. The following scents are stimulating and energizing: lemon, grapefruit, peppermint, rosemary, and pine.

The following scents can improve circulation: birch, cinnamon bark, clary sage, cypress, hyssop, and nutmeg.

For intolerance to cold, try sandalwood in a bath.

To improve concentration, try basil, cedarwood, cypress, eucalyptus, juniper, lavender, lemon, myrrh, orange, peppermint, rosemary, sandalwood, and ylang-ylang.

For muscle aches, try birch, ginger, nutmeg, and rosemary.

To improve fingernails, try eucalyptus, grapefruit, lavender, lemon, tea tree, myrrh, oregano, patchouli, peppermint, ravensara, rosemary, or thyme.

For sluggish digestion, rub a little fennel, nutmeg, sage, or tarragon on your stomach after eating. For constipation, try fennel, ginger, juniper, marjoram, orange, patchouli, rose, rosemary, sandalwood, tangerine, or tarragon.

To improve dry skin, try chamomile, davana, geranium, jasmine, lavender, lemon, patchouli, rosewood, or sandalwood.

TO help with thyrotoxicosis (until it is under control), the most important essential oils are the calming oils, listed previously, as well as oil of orange, which calms palpitations.
