 Essential Oils for Your First Trimester

You just found out you are pregnant! Now what? During your first trimester your body is adjusting to this new bundle of joy that is making a comfy home in your belly for the next nine months. Instead of worrying about what could happen during your first trimester, we have you covered. Check out some of our recipes to help with the common symptoms you might face during the first few months.

I would like to note: this blog is based on research and my personal experience being pregnant. I am not a doctor, and always recommend you talk to your doctor before adding anything new to your lifestyle while pregnant. I read online that oils were not safe during the first trimester, but my doctor gave me the green light to use them right away. Lemon, ginger and peppermint essential oils helped my acid reflux tremendously the first few months, so I will personally tell you it was fine for me. Again, do what is best for you and your baby.


Sleep Serenity Blend

To restore a good night's sleep we suggest a combination of Lavender, Orange, Amyris, and Ylang Ylang.You can try the individual oils, or purchase our premixed blend of these oils.

How to use: Diffuse while sleeping, place a drop on your pillow, or dilute with a carrier oil such as coconut oil and rub on the bottom of the feet to achieve a perfect nights rest.

Morning Sickness (Anti-Nausea) Blend

This is a combination of Ginger, Peppermint, and Lemon. You can also add Lavender for a roll-on blend. 

How to use: Diffuse, breathe in oils straight from a jar, or dilute with a carrier oil such as coconut oil and rub on the back of your neck. You can mix your own oils, and create your own roll-on bottle mixtures.

Energy Blend

To prevent an afternoon slump we suggest our afternoon pick-me-up with Peppermint, Lemon, Frankincense, Bergamot, and Grapefruit.

How to use: Dilute with coconut oil, rub in your palms, inhale deeply, and massage on the back of your neck. You can also use this blend in an oil diffuser.

Bloating and Water Retention

To avoid that bloated uncomfortable feeling we suggest adding 3-5 drops of Lemon or Grapefruit to your glass of water each day. Essential oils can break down plastic or styrofoam, so drink from glass.

Yeast Infections

To combat irritating yeast infections we suggest putting a few drops of Tea Tree and Lavender along with 1/4 cup of bath salts into a warm bath.

How to use: Soak for about 10 minutes in the essential oil and bath salt blend.
