It is 11 pm and I have just been called to a client's home because she thinks she is in labor! Yay! I always LOVE those phone calls. They mean that soon, a new baby will be welcomed into the world! How neat is that?! I grab my doula bag of goodies and head to her house. Can you guess what one (or several) of the things in my bag are? Yep...essential oils. Why?
Well, did you know clary sage essential oil can help regulate contractions, relax mom, and create a more balanced environment? Exactly what we need when welcoming a baby. Lavender essential oil is used for it's calming and relaxing properties and peppermint oil is used to help reduce nausea and to mask some smells the birthing person would rather not smell. They are a main necessity when it comes to supporting my doula clients. While I am no professional, I do only use the oils I am familiar with. They can be a bit tricky and potentially have serious side effects if used improperly. With that being said, a DoTERRA rep will be able to help you select the RIGHT ones for YOU!
