Pregnancy + Oils

pregnancy and oils

YL is HUGE in prenatal care. I have been so, so thankful for my oils to help support my body while it’s working hard to create a child. There’s a lot out there when it comes to what is and isn’t recommended during pregnancy. You are the keeper of your body so you should do what makes you feel comfortable and create your own regimen. This is mine. I make my decisions based on science backed articles discussing Young Living oils specifically and only. We all know that essential oils vary greatly between companies, so please, please please do not use oils you got from amazon, the grocery store or the mall, it really wouldn’t be applicable to the quality of oils we get from Young Living and not even remotely as safe.

Progessence Plus: Okay, I love this. Grabbed this to use for hormone support especially for us trying to get pregnant. This is to be use as you are trying to conceive and throughout your first trimester as the combination of high estrogen and progesterone levels suppress further ovulation during pregnancy, (preventing miscarriage). Progesterone is a female hormone important for the regulation of ovulation and menstruation. If a pregnancy occurs, progesterone is produced in the placenta, and levels remain elevated throughout the pregnancy. The  Progesterone also encourages the growth of milk-producing glands in the breast during pregnancy. Use through first trimester may increase your nausea, headaches and moodiness but it is well worth it to have that support.

Lemon, Digize + Gentle Baby (Heartburn): Dilute Gentle baby and rub along your neck. Dilute Lemon on your breastbone.

Lavender, Peace + Calming II, Frankincense: Diffuse, rub, inhale. Drop of lavender on your wrists and collarbone. Drop of any of the oils above on the bottoms of your feet an hour before bed.

Spearmint and Aromaease (nausea): For those blessed with first trimester nausea, rub a few drops over your liver, sniff it, diffuse it. Ningxia and Super B were my game changers when it came to nausea.

Claraderm Spray: To soothe your vajeen area, sorry if TMI but 15 lbs of baby pressing on your parts does not feel good! This stuff also helps prepare your lady parts for birth, strengthening your downstairs to prevent tearing. Start spraying at 33 weeks a few times a day.

Clary Sage: Have this on deck for around your due date. This helps regulate contractions naturally. If you are late, this is a natural way to get the baby moving along. Diffuse during labor!

Body Butter: I made this for myself and my best gal through her pregnancy. Shae butter, cocoa butter, jojoba, frank, lav, and gentle baby to prevent cellulite and to soothe your baby all at the same time. All of these oils are great for your babe so rub away every single night.

NINGXIA. Cannot say enough about drinking Ningxia every damn day. Packed with nutrients and antioxidants to give you natural energy. Personally, I am not completely done drinking coffee, but I had to cut down my intake. Ningxia really helped me make it through while I was nauseous. SO good for you and the baby.

White Angelica + Valor: Emotions. Hormones. A lot of it during pregnancy and White Angelica keeps me so grounded. Diffused for sleep or during a bath or whenever!

Mineral Essence: drops in your tea at night. Crucial for our bodies in this time. Has a yucky taste but I played with it and found its best with hot tea at night.

Peppermint (headaches + nausea): This one is on the “use cautiously” during pregnancy list but I am so thankful for it! When an oil is on this list, it’s important to look at WHY it is there. Peppermint, when rubbed on the belly *can* flip the baby. Okay, so I’m not rubbing a bottle of peppermint on my belly every night, because, well why would I do that? When my hormone headache occurs, I rub pep on my temples and neck and instant relief!

Slique Bar (Tropical Berry Crunch): You might not be able to eat most things or any things EXCEPT for carbs. I was able to get these bars down, I actually looked forward to eating them. Your sweet tooth will be in full force so the little bit of chocolate in this really does the trick.

Einkorn Granola: Another snack you might be able to get down that is actually beneficial for you and your baby boo’s health. Add to some organic granola or munch on it alone! Me and my husband cannot get enough of this stuff.

Seedlings Line: Start stocking up now! Honestly knowing all of the chemicals in baby products (lotions, etc.) I won’t use anything but YL products on my kids. Super affordable, all last forever and can be diluted to last even beyond that.

Sheerlume: This is for the dark spots, also known as Melasma, that you tend to get on your face during pregnancy. This stuff is WILD. Works almost instantly.

Prenatal Supplements

VitaFusion Prenatal Gummies: Amazon! I get them shipped monthly and they’re cheap as dirt. Satisfies my sweet tooth craving as well. Conventional prenatals such as these don’t take into account that you are an individual and have different needs. This is where YL comes in. UPDATE: Trimester 3 and I am so over taking these.

Super B: You are going to be extremely fatigued so these are amazing support for drowsiness and nausea. Unfortunately, B vitamins are not stored in the body and they must be replenished daily. For pregnancy, you should insist on folate vs folic acid in your prenatal wellness regimen for the absolute best your babe can get and this supplement has just that.

Super Cal: Contains all of the calcium and minerals your baby needs to develop their teensy bones and teeth. How friggin cute. This supplement is amazing for the integrity and structure of your bones and teeth as well!

Super C:  All the vitamin C! Our immune systems are suppressed during pregnancy and I love having this supplement to keep me above the wellness line, free from the nasty headcold. You aren’t able to take antibiotics when you are sick so Super C it up!

Inner Defense: This is my everyday immunity supplement because you really can’t take much when you are pregnant so basically I am making my immune system a brick house. Now many do not take this every single day but I definitely am during this pregnancy. I mean let’s face it, I probably will forever.

Multigreens: You and your babe need your daily source of greens in this bioactive sea vegetable energy source for vitality. The combination of bee pollen and essential oil blend helps to increase assimilation of the nutrients with an excellent choline source for energy production. Some people dump 2-3 of these capsules in their morning smoothie.

Life 9: Pregnancy = irregular BM’s.Take this guy at night!Life 9 is a proprietary, high-potency probiotic that combines 17 billion live cultures from nine beneficial bacteria strains. You see, there are microbes in the lower intestinal tract that help us digest food, fight harmful bacteria, and regulate the immune system. But sometimes an imbalance of microbes occurs, leading to running to the bathroom… if you get my drift … and other health problems.

Olive Essentials: Heart health and overall well being. Each capsule of Olive Essentials has as much hydroxytyrosol as a liter of extra virgin olive oil, delivering a concentrated amount of this invaluable compound.

Illumineyes: So what they don’t tell you is that pregnancy leaves you blind. This capsule supports your eyes and skin with the powerful ingredients featuring lutein and zeaxanthin. Yhis proprietary formula helps reduce eye strain, protects eyes from damaging blue light, and maintains vibrant skin. IlluminEyes can also help support your eye health in the long-term—vitamins A and C both have properties that may help reduce eye health deterioration commonly related to age.

ImmuPro: Idk about you but I am doing whatever I can to avoid any illness going around. Seriously, carrying a child is enough effort in itself. These chewy tablets not only keep you above the wellness line, they’re BOMB for sleep. Take these at night because they deliver melatonin which encourages restful sleep by promoting the body’s natural sleep rhythm.
