    I think clary sage oil 8 drops in a carrier oil such as sweet almond and apply to inner wrists 3 x a day is good for hot flushes.

    Someone told me sage supplements help. I haven't tried them myself yet. Just trying to deal as best I can with them, but I usually get the flashes at night instead.

      Hi there.  Think I will try evening primrose as I used to take them when I was younger for period pain and it might help with the odd cramp pain I am experiencing at the moment. Anyone else experience this discomfort?? 

      Thnak you.

      My sister swaers by them for the period pain.. I do now for the sweats.. Can be good for dry skin too if u split a capsual and run into the skin.. The best thing is they are so cheap as well but I think myself like many others would pay anything to be normal 😰
