EO Mythstakes: Estrogen In Essential Oils
You may have come across claims that essential oils like Lavender, Tea Tree and Clary Sage have been shown to mimic estrogen, or contain hormones. Thus, these oils have the potential to balance hormones by increasing estrogen levels and should be used with caution on males and those with estrogen-induced cancer.
At this time, there is little to no evidence that these oils are estrogenic, or that essential oils contain hormones, making this a classic essential oil mysthstake. On the contrary, recent studies have shown that these oils do not show estrogen-like activity.
