Essential Oils & Pregnancy
Pregnancy and giving birth are very special times and exciting phases. Women´s hormones change and the body takes a new form. Women usually have forty weeks to prepare for the baby, and to take conscious actions and pay attention to their lifestyle. How one feels (physically, mentally and emotionally) determines the state of health and one’s well-being.
Aromatherapy has long since established itself in professional nursing and is proven in midwifery, birth facilities and hospitals. ÂMEFlore® essential oils and their positive effects offer gentle support for many discomforts in pregnancy, birth and postpartum (puerperal). The mild and natural composition of our essences and oils combines safety with efficacy and can be a great comfort in this special phase of life.
