Caring For Mummy’s Well Being, Beauty & Sanity

As a mummy, you may find that by nature you are a giver. You give your body to your baby from the time of conception to breastfeeding, till your baby is grown up. And of course along the way while carrying your bump you also have other people such as your other children and husband pawing at you wanting your attention. So you never really have a chance to fully own your own body so much so that you want to scream at everyone to leave you alone.

So to prevent you from appearing like a crazy tired lady with unwashed hair and unwanted body fat in unflattering places, here are some things you can do to help yourself feel and look better as well as to feel normal again (the Young Living product recommendations here do not include the necessary nutritional care you need during and after pregnancy, please consult your physician for necessary advice.)

During Pregnancy:

  • Gentle Baby – great for stretch marks to be used during and after pregnancy. It helps with the elasticity of the skin, good for scars and it helps prevent wrinkles as well. It is also a wonderful blend for emotional support and well being. Helps with nervous system, it is relaxing and calming. (also very safe to use on babies). How to use: Undiluted in bath water, several drops on abdomen, ankles, neck, feet, inhale directly or diffuse. For babies, you may choose to dilute 50:50 with a carrier oil such as V6 and massage all over baby.
  • Lemon – a few drops in drinking water to refresh yourself
  • Grapefruit – in water or inhale as an uplifter of moods
  • Peppermint – as you may feel hot a lot of the times, peppermint is a great one to help you cool down either in water as a refreshing drink or apply on your neck area.
  • Joy and Rose – very good for emotional support if you feel particular down or moody
