Postpartum with Essential Oils: Part 4: Your Emotions

Bonding with your baby is the most natural thing in the world RIGHT?  Well not always.  As your hormones are changing and your body is hurting the exhaustion and stress may make motherhood an extreme challenge emotionally.  Thankfully, there are some essential oils that will help.  

Unity, a blend by Butterfly Express or another similar blend by any other company will help in the first few hours after birth.  It is the perfect oil to diffuse as you place your baby in their father's arms or allow them to meet their siblings for the first time.  It will help bring peaceful loving feelings to all who are in the room.  Unity contains: angelica, orange bitter, frankincense, geranium, hyssop, lavender, mandarin, neroli, palmarosa, rose, rose geranium, sage, sandalwood, spikenard, spruce and ylang ylang, all of which are high frequency oils.  

Post Partum Depression can be treated in many of the same ways as other depressions, but a hormone balancing oil can also be of benefit.  Oil blends such as Heart Song, Tranquility, Trust and Unity will be helpful.  Geranium ,a wonderful smelling essential oil, can minister to your hormones and your emotions.

To use essential oils for emotions you can dilute the oils with a carrier oil and then apply to the body almost as a perfume behind the ears and along the neck.  You can also diffuse the oil, sniff directly from the bottle or wear on a diffuser necklace.
