Your Ultimate Guide to Essential Oils in Pregnancy
Aromatherapy is the art and science of using natural, aromatic essential oils (EO). ‘Aroma’ refers to the fact that all essential oils have a characteristic smell and ‘therapy’ refers to healing.
Many women use essential oils to help ease pregnancy issues such as anxiety, morning sickness, itchiness, stretch marks, back pain, heartburn, leg, cramps, fatigue, sniffles/dry nose and constipation.
There are many benefits to incorporating EO’s, into your life as a mum-to-be as they are a natural remedy to enhance the mind and body.
