I’m always looking for natural remedies. Since the start of my pregnancy, I’ve become more aware of what I’m putting into my body and trying to use more natural products. Recently I’ve heard a lot about essential oils helping with many ailments and I knew I wanted to give them a try. With hormonal changes, lack of sleep, and healing from labor, what better time to start than during postpartum care.
Essential oils are natural oils found in many different plants. These oils have been found to have therapeutic benefits such as: antibacterial, anti-cancerous, antioxidant, stress relieving, and anti-inflammatory properties. Essential Oils can be used aromatically or topically. I normally place the diluted oils topically as needed to the bottoms of my feet, wrists, or back of my neck.
Since I am new to essential oils and their benefits I found it helpful working with Holly, a wellness advocate from doTERRA. She was able to recommend oils that were catered specifically to my needs. She knew exactly what combinations I should use for postpartum care. I am very thankful I found her and so far have had a great experience with the oils.
One of the blends she prepared is the Happy Mom blend. It’s a mix of fractionated coconut oil, balance blend, elevation blend, frankincense, and wild orange essential oil. This blend will help promote hormonal balance, calming and sleep, and stress and anxiety. So far I have been feeling great. I am definitely tired and trying to nap as much as I can since my little angel wakes me up every 2 hours.
Holly also prepared a calm baby blend. I can’t wait to try it on her. It is recommended that I wait until she’s 3 months old. Hopefully this will help her sleep through the nights in a few months. I’m keeping hopeful with my fingers crossed.
Holly and I would like to give away a doTERRA introductory kit (which includes Lemon, Lavender, Peppermint, Wild Orange, and Fractionated Coconut Oil) and a Happy Blend to one my wonderful readers.
