The endocrine system is made up of glands [the pineal, pituitary gland, thyroid, adrenal, pancreas, thyroid, parathyroid, ovaries, and testicles] throughout the body that produce, store, and release hormones. Hormones are chemicals that serve as a form of communication within the body. The endocrine system triggers the glands to release hormones into the bloodstream, which distributes the hormones throughout the body. These hormones are critical to our survival; they help maintain homeostasis, which includes regulating blood pressure, blood sugar, sex hormones, digestive enzymes, stress response, and more. Keeping the glands functioning well is key to overall health and quality of life.
The pituitary gland is known as the master gland. It controls all other glands in the endocrine system. A special part of the brain called the hypothalamus controls the pituitary gland, so the endocrine system is actually under the control of the nervous system. Hormones controlled by the endocrine system control the function of the many organs and body systems, including the skin, kidney, stomach, liver, pancreas, reproductive system, and heart.
Essential oils can be used to support the endocrine system and promote balance and homeostasis.
