Pregnancy is a wonderful exciting time especially if you're a new mother. However, with the increased bodily demands and hormonal changes, you experience a variety of physical and emotional changes. Above all, for most it is a time when you may wish to maximise your own health in order to give your child the best possible start in life. Aromatherapy during pregnancy can work in a number of ways on different levels and can work as a treat to your body and self.
Specialized pregnancy treatments given with care by qualified and experienced therapists can help to balance the emotions, relieve any feeling of anxiety and discomfort and will enhance the whole experience for the mother-to-be.
Aromatherapy at home
Other than receiving specialized treatments, you can extend your aromatherapy experience at the comfort of your own home with a number of products that are suitable for expecting mothers. The ingredients that are used in aromatherapy products can work to relieve some symptoms that are often experienced during pregnancy.
For example, Lavender may aid sleep as it helps to relax your body give you a better night's sleep whereas citrus oils which are used in our Revive range can keep you refreshed and give you a boost of energy.
You can use these oils to ease your symptoms in the usual ways - in your bath, via an oil burner or diffuser, or through massage.
