Essential oils Labor & Pregnancy

I remember being particularly fond of lavender oil during my first pregnancy, and whenever I smell lavender oil it instantly reminds me of that time. Lavender is a must during pregnancy, as it has the longest list of therapeutic properties, it also the safest oil on the skin. It has the ability to stimulate the production of healthy white blood cells, and to goad them into action, should an invading organism such as cold virus, decide to visit. I would recommend a lavender bath at least once a week during pregnancy.

Beside Lavender, there are mandarin, neroli and also geranium that are good for pregnancy. Jasmine and Clary sage are good for labor.

It is not advised to use essential oils labor & pregnancy on yourself on the first trimester of your pregnancy. Carrier oil such as jojoba or sweet almond oil can help stop the stretch marks. After month three you can add 4 drops of mandarin oil to 20 ml of jojoba oil. Massage half a teaspoonful daily.

It is recommended that you avoid jasmine and clary sage for the whole term of pregnancy so you can use it until labor when they can be used.
