Many pregnant mums become extra concerned about the products they use. And with good reason! Preparing for our first child is when I went full out removing as many toxins from our home as possible. I wanted my babies to have the best chance with their immunity and overall health (including their brains!).
Did you know that microplastics were detected in human placenta? "Microplastics carry with them substances which, acting as endocrine disruptors, could cause long-term effects on human health." (Science Direct article 106274). 200 Chemicals have been found in newborn umbilical cord blood (Scientific American). Babies are born with a toxic load - from their mother and father, but. there’s so much we can do to help reduce toxic load from the environment - before conception, during pregnancy and after birth.
Enter pure, tested essential oils (quality matters! Not all 'natural' products are created equal). To clean the house. For skin care. To support pregnancy symptoms. To support baby afterwards - digestion, sleep, teething and so much more.
If you’d like a starter kit to address all your needs pre, during and post baby, I recommend starting with the Home Essentials Kit (top 10 oils + diffuser). Go to the link in my bio to grab yours. Once you’ve done that, send me a message to let me know and I’ll send you my Pregnancy & Post Partum oils ebook and help you create a protocol.
Did you use oils in pregnancy? Wish I’d had these through mine!
