Pregnancy First Trimester

My interest and passion for aromatherapy began when I was pregnant with my son. I can testify from personal experience that essential oils did not only help me conceive, they also helped me cope with the different physical and emotional problems that come with pregnancy. Ever since, I have incorporated the use of these natural oils as part of my daily life as well as my son’s. Pregnancy is just the right time to pamper your senses and to prepare for the joys of motherhood. For many women, several minor problems like morning sickness, indigestion, fatigue, edema, insomnia and cramps can mar this feeling of happiness.  The scope of Aromatherapy in different stages of pregnancy cannot be underestimated. The benefits of essential oils during pregnancy are so vast that it certainly deserves more than a single blog post to talk about them. In an attempt to share detailed information with my readers, I have come up with a four-part series on the theme that will discuss the goodness of aromatherapy at different stages of pregnancy and childcare. Use of Aromatherapy and Essential Oils during the First Trimester The feeling of excitement and anticipation during the first trimester coupled with hormonal changes in the body can bring about morning sickness, mood-swings, anxiety and gastric problems. Essential oils when used individually or in combination may help alleviate or minimize these symptoms. Moreover, since a woman’s sense of smell is enhanced multifold during pregnancy, it’s great to be surrounded by a pleasant smelling, healthy and relaxing atmosphere. The following essential oils not only offer a refreshing environment but can also be very helpful in suppressing symptoms of stress and discomfort: Spearmint oil is a good nerve tonic that helps fight off mental fatigue and nervous stress. Grapefruit oil is a natural anti-depressant as it uplifts and refreshes the mood. Ginger oil is a warming essential oil often used to treat digestive problems and stomach upsets of any kind. Its warming qualities neutralize feelings of loneliness and winter depression. Lemon oil helps to eliminate emotional confusion and enhance one’s sense of humor and sense of well-being. These oils can be used individually or in combination with other oils according to personal preference. You can use it with your aromatherapy diffuser or if you prefer you can add a couple of drops to a tissue and smell directly and as often as needed.

  Respiratory infections can catch us unawares but that does not imply that we overreact.  We would rather prepare ourselves adequately and make use of nature’s wisdom than panic unnecessarily! For centuries our ancestors have basked in the immunity-boosting benefits of natural essential oils. Some essential oils used in aromatherapy have been scientifically proven to ward of infections and disease causing organisms. Here are some of the essential oils that can be safely used and are very effective. They can  safeguard the health of your family by strengthening the immune system and alleviating symptoms of respiratory disorders:
  • Eucalyptus Globulus and Eucalyptus Radiata have powerful antibacterial and antiviral properties.
  • Niaouli and Tea Tree possess natural bactericidal, antiviral and fungicidal properties and are known to have a stimulating effect on the immune system.
  • Ravensara can be extremely helpful in relieving symptoms of whooping cough and sinusitis.
  • Pine is a natural expectorant and a very powerful pulmonary antiseptic.
  • Lavender is a natural antiseptic and analgesic which makes it an effective remedy for colds, coughs, catarrh and influenza.
Here's how you can use them, I always recommend to at blend at least two of them for more effectiveness:
  • Add 10 drops of essential oil to 2 tbsp of salt and mix it in your bath water.
  • Add 10 drops of essential oils  to a humidifier and keep it on all day.
  • Pour a couple of drops on your palm and inhale deeply, especially before entering a public place or flying.
  • Place a couple of drops of the oil on a tissue and wipe surfaces like door knobs, steering wheel, etc.
Why worry when Mother Nature has a solution for every problem? Aromandina Recommends: RESPIRO Immune Support is a unique blend of highly effective essential oils that perform diverse functions and may help protect the respiratory system from infectious assault.     Related Articles How to Use Essential Oils Part 1 Do Not Let Respiratory Infections Catch You Unawares Essential Oils for the Immune System

“When you first contacted me about this line, I wasn’t planning to add to my inventory.  But after learning more about the line and experiencing them first hand, I love these oils.  I love every product in the line.  I’m so glad I have it.  I’ve been using other essential oils for a number of years and they’ve been really good.  But what I love about this line is the price point makes these oils really affordable for my clients and that it was developed with no more than five or so oils in each blend.  It’s simple yet powerful.  The products are wonderful.  My clients across the board love them all.  They are flying off the shelf – nine items just yesterday, and yesterday was a slow day.”  B Higginson, MO
