I’m starting to pack my hospital bag and the first thing I’m packing are the oils I will be using!
I’m thinking Valor + Joy in for emotional support because they are my fav! Release, and Sclaressence for labor, Lavender and Gentle Baby for skin, Ningxia Red for energy and recovery. Peace + Calming in the diffuser. Progessence Plus for hormonal support, I will start using this probably 10 days after birth. Calarderm! I have actually already been using Claraderm for perineum care in hopes of tearing less! The testimonies on this product have been amazing!
I will be trying out the “morphine bomb” for my little guy for pain relief from all the poking, prodding and cutting that his little body will be going through. Here’s the recipe-
I will be starting off low and slow and what I mean by that is 1 drop of each diluted with coconut oil on the bottoms of his feet.
Idaho balsam fir
