I'm pregnant. And when you get sick while you are pregnant you are kind of out of luck with taking any medication for a fast recovery, like no zapping headaches away with ibuprofen anymore... You've basically got to wait it out. I've clung onto my 'potions' aka essential oils because I feel like they are the only things I can use while I'm preggo to help me feel better if I'm feeling nauseous, have a headache or have a cold etc. So I have my diffuser on my nightstand and use it every night! I don't know what I would do with out it-- I use my oils everyday! It gives me peace of mind knowing that they are natural remedies that are totally safe to use while pregnant and nursing AND for babies too! I know I am going to have oils be apart of my kiddos life! Just call me 'witchdoctor natalie' ha!

What are Essential Oils?
If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you've experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils provide plants with protection against predators and disease and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.

How do I use essential oils?
Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends in one of three methods:

  • Aromatic: Certain essential oils, when diffused, can be very stimulating, while others can be calming and soothing. Diffusing essential oils can also purify the air of unwanted odors and some airborne pathogens.
  • Topical: Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically.
  • Internal: Essential oils can also be used as a dietary supplements supporting a variety of healthy conditions.
