In brief: Yes

I would suggest first to try evening primerose oil capsules about 1000 mg twice a day after meals.
That is not an essential oil but rather a carrier oil and usually working good for controlling menopausal symptoms.

The most common deficiency of essential oils in the USA is Omega 3 fatty acids. Adding wild salmon and walnuts to the diet helps, or take pure molecularly distilled fish oil or Krill oil capsules daily. Major help with nutrition for the whole body with adding Omega 3 oils.

In brief: Not really.

In menopause the ovaries are no longer producing both estrogen (estradiol) and progesterone, which are potent female hormones.
Every cell in a woman's body has estrogen and Progesterone receptors, not just the reproductive system, so the entire body suffers once in menopause. Anything but bioidentical hormone replacement may help some symptoms here and there, but it doesn't address main problem.
