Of all the natural remedies, there are 10 essential oils for thyroid support that can be a real game-changer for anyone looking to balance hormones and support their body. You may be pleasantly surprised to learn how cost-effective and easy it is to prepare personalized blends at home with powerful compounds proven to improve thyroid health, and help control the discomfort that thyroid imbalance brings.

How Essential Oils Benefit Your Thyroid

Because so many thyroid sufferers also test positive for heavy metal toxicity, some toxins and heavy metals are suspected of contributing to or even causing thyroid imbalance. These include lead, aluminum, cadmium, and mercury. Additionally, environmental toxins are everywhere, from the shampoo in your shower to the flavor enhancers and preservatives in your foods.

Specific essential oils for thyroid support can help you detox, such as cilantro, and can be used as part of a detoxification process. Others are good for helping support symptoms of thyroid imbalance.

How do you know if you would benefit from these essential oils for thyroid support?

First you can understand more about hyper vs hypo thyroid issues. If your thyroid is underactive, you may have hypothyroid symptoms such as sudden or unexplained weight gain, sensitivity to cold, lethargy, hair loss, hair or skin or dryness, constipation, enlarged thyroid gland, irritability, or even a slow heart rate.

Conversely, if your thyroid is overactive, you might experience hyperthyroid symptoms such as: unexplained weight loss or inability to gain weight, heat sensitivity or excessive sweating, excessive or persistent hunger, restlessness or fatigue, light menstruation, insomnia, diarrhea, hair loss, tremors, fast heart rate or abnormal heart rhythm, nervousness, hyperactivity, or panic attacks.

Of course, making adjustments to your diet so you include plenty of foods to support thyroid health will help. And studies are showing that essential oils can also be used to support thyroid health, and help you manage the discomfort thyroid imbalance can cause.

Essential Oils for Thyroid Support

Top 10 Essential Oils & Uses

Here are our ten favorite essential oils that will provide powerfully effective help for thyroid symptoms.

1. Frankincense – For Overall Health and Balance

Frankincense is one of my favorite essential oils. Many of the things frankincense essential oil helps with (1) are issues either caused by thyroid imbalance, or like memory issues, can result from thyroid imbalance.

Frankincense essential oil is great for addressing immune health (2), chronic and inflammatory diseases (3), brain and memory disorders, autoimmunity, asthma, skin conditions, inflammatory bowel disease, diabetes, and even cancer!

2. Lavender – A Gentle but Effective Option for Thyroid Support

Lavender essential oil is among the most widely recommended essential oils for thyroid dysfunction and for many other ailments, with good reason. Lavender can help diabetes & oxidative stress (4) (free radicals), induce calming, help alleviate insomnia (5), alleviate depression, reduce inflammation, boost antioxidant activity, and act as an analgesic.

Many of these symptoms describe what people suffer with hyperthyroid issues, or hypothyroidism. So you see why lavender is a top pick essential oil for thyroid support.

3. Roman Chamomile – Fight Depression Thyroid Issues Can Cause

Roman chamomile oil addresses a narrower range of symptoms very well, but all common to thyroid imbalance. Anxiety, depression, and insomnia all respond beautifully to chamomile (6).

4. Rose Geranium – Fight Inflammation

Geranium essential oil helps reduce the inflammation (7) associated with thyroid imbalance. Most people who suffer thyroid problems, benefit from reducing overall inflammation in their bodies. Additionally, people often find the rosy fragrance lightens the mood and allows them to let go and relax.

5. Lemongrass – Uplifting and Anti-Inflammatory

Lemongrass oil is a powerful ally both to inhibit pro-inflammatory cytokines and reduce allergic and inflammatory disease response (8) associated with thyroid imbalance. This points to a strong anti-inflammatory effect (9)! It brightens any aromatherapy blend, and many say intensifies the effects of the entire blend.

6. Lemon – Boost Energy and Mental Clarity

Lemon essential oil is truly a boon to those suffering from thyroid issues. One of my favorite uses is as an energizer that brings mental clarity. It’s perfect for helping to overcome the brain fog so common with thyroid imbalance.

Lemon essential oil would also help support your thyroid by reducing damage (10) and oxidative stress to your liver, providing antioxidant effects (11) on your liver and brain, and fighting inflammation (12). It also helps with weight loss (13) – a significant concern of many thyroid patients.

7. Peppermint – Overcome Fatigue and Muscle Aches of Thyroid Issues

Peppermint oil  has been proven to have an instant positive effect on physical performance, as well as improving cognitive performance and mood (14).

8. Ginger – Support Digestion Upsets of Thyroid Imbalance

Ginger essential oil is not only energizing itself, but it acts as a catalyst-activating other compounds around it. We also know that many who suffer from thyroid imbalances have digestive irritations or nausea and ginger can help with that.

Ginger essential oil is also good medicine for your thyroid in general – helping your body’s response to inflammation (15), oxidative stress, autoimmune issues, allergic response, and asthma. What a wonder!

9. Cilantro – Detox to Prevent Thyroid Damage

Cilantro is among the most powerful forces in your arsenal, boasting unequaled heavy metal detoxification (16), liver protection (17), and antioxidant provision (18). It’s a culinary herb we grow in our garden, and a very useful essential oil.

It’s high in linalool, a strong anti-inflammatory and analgesic. That’s why it’s one of the oils we recommend people use in our fibromyalgia muscle relief massage blend – another autoimmune disease that can wreck havoc in the body.

10. Black Pepper – Enhance Your Body’s Response for Better Thyroid Function

Black pepper is not merely an energy booster. It is also a known bioenhancer (19) – magnifying the effects of every ingredient in the blend. It fights inflammation (20), toxins, anxiety, and depression (21) – all common struggles with thyroid imbalance.

Two Powerful Thyroid Remedies

These essential oil blends are carefully crafted to provide a specific range of benefits to people who suffer from under or overactive thyroid symptoms. Try them in proper dilutions and see how your body begins to respond. You’ll find best results if you are keeping your health care provider in the loop and addressing other areas in your life such as removing toxins from your home, and adjusting your diet to include foods that support thyroid health!

Do you feel overwhelmed at times? One symptom of thyroid imbalance—whether you struggle with hypothyroid or hyperthyroid—is an anxiety-inducing, paralyzing weight of feeling constantly overwhelmed.

Thyroid imbalance is often synonymous with being overwhelmed, over-stressed, anxious, fatigued (yet unable to rest), and hopeless. This thyroid balancing essential oil blend helps clear your mind, calm your spirit, and allow restful sleep.

Stress can increase inflammation, and lack of quantity AND quality sleep (as well as never taking time for waking mind-rest) intensifies any inflammatory condition. Thyroid imbalance is strongly associated with inflammation and immune dysfunction including autoimmunity.

Clear and Peaceful Roll-On
  1. Mix a blend of up to 20 drops total into a 10 ml roller bottle and fill it with a high-quality carrier oil of your choice.
  2. Apply to the base of your neck whenever you begin to feel anxious and overwhelmed, and at bedtime to destress and calm your spirit. If you practice prayer or meditation for health, this is a perfect blend to see that you enter your sacred time with tranquility.

Thyroid causing constant fatigue? One main symptom of under active thyroid is an oppressive sense of fatigue. A sluggish thyroid can leave you feeling over-tired and worn down most of the day.

Since optimum thyroid function is associated with so many body systems that affect energy—from your liver which produces glycogen energy stores to your adrenal glands—you’ll clearly feel an acute lack of energy if it becomes under active.

An underactive thyroid gland saps your energy in numerous ways. This blend is full of proven energy boosters which also impact thyroid symptoms directly. You’ll feel better right away, and you’ll also help heal your thyroid long term.
