    I had to have a hysterectomy when I was 48 and I am now 56, almost 57.  I use Young Living essential oils and make a mixture of a few drops each of Progessence Plus, Fennel, and Clary Sage in a 10 ml bottle with fractionated coconut oil.  I put it on my wrists and the inside of my ankles every night at bedtime and I don't have hot flashes anymore.  I think it helps me sleep, also, since it has Clary Sa...

It made me very nauseous and although I did not throw up, I had to be near a bathroom all the time. I stopped taking it Tuesday but I am still nauseous.
