Found this post that VERY pregnant me wrote not long before giving birth to my baby Kruze!
Thought I’d share it again 😘
If you were wondering what oils I’m taking with for labor/delivery/postpartum (because by now surely you know this mama uses oils for eerrrrthang)– wonder no more 😉
Dudes. Avert your eyes. I use words like lady garden and perineum all in the same sentence.
Valor 2 to help balance my body physically & emotionally, to give me courage & confidence, & to combat on-going aches (especially for my back 🙌🏼)
Orange to diffuse because it’s super uplifting, calming & stimulates the immune system
Frankincense because Frankincense.. if you know me personally you know this is my go to for calming my nervous. It supports the immune system + the pituitary (“master gland” that produces many hormones) and the pineal gland (responsible for melatonin production). It’s considered a Holy Oil & was among one of the anointing oils given to baby Jesus.
Helichrysum to be applied to my lower back during labor
Peppermint to sniff if/when I get nauseous (I threw up right before & after transition during kyzers birth)
Believe, Joy, Northern Lights Black Spruce & Stress Away all for emotional support, pregnancy & labor+delivery are an emotional roller coaster yall 🙌🏼
Clary Sage to encourage labor to progress
Gentle Baby for me post partum (I’ve loveddddddd it and used it daily through out the pregnancy, it’s awesome for reducing stress & for soothing stretched, stressed skin)
Lavender because I go nowhere without it (will diffuse it when I get the chance to sleep for a couple hours after delivery)
Lemon for my water because it’s refreshing, gives me energy & has a ton of benefits so I drink it daily
& Claraderm to support healing & soothing for my lady garden & my stretched stomach after birth– also it’s what I’ve used to prepare my perineum for birth (I didn’t tear with kyzer and don’t plan to tear with this baby 🙅🏼)
Plus there’s a roller specifically for labor that Kyle will roll on my back as needed & that I’ll roll on my stomach PP for the discomfort that come along with my uterus contracting back down to size 😉
Oh AND! Ningxia. All the Ningxia for whole-body support & sustainable energy during (and after I’m sure) labor.
To say I’m excited is an understatement yall. 🤗
