"Breath!" is something you will most likely hear a LOT during labor. It's a well known fact that taking deep breaths between contractions and during hard labor helps mother stay calm & helps get oxygen to the baby. While these statements may seem obvious, you will find it is not as easy as you may think to remember to breath or to get full, deep breaths while in labor. After all, you will be tense, uncomfortable and anything-but relaxed.
The pleasant, relaxing aroma of this blend expands breathing, allowing more oxygen into the body, which in turn, helps the mother concentrate & keep calm. Also helpful for the exhaustion that comes along with all of the hard work. Incorporate this synergy with your breathing & relaxation techniques during all stages of labor. Women who have used it say it made all the difference in keeping them focused & calm during their entire childbirth experience. The nurses & family in the room will benefit, too!
Directions: There are several methods of use when it comes to synergies. Here are a few examples of use during child birth:
~Add 5-10 drops to a room diffuser (with water) & diffuse for the duration of labor, adding more synergy & water as needed.
*Note: If you are giving birth in a hospital there is most likely a no-candle policy and you will need an electric diffuser. See our Diffuser collection for some great options!
~Place 1-3 drops on a tissue & place tissue over nose while taking several slow, deep breaths through nose. Repeat as needed. Alternatively, place the tissue beside your pillow or somewhere the aroma can reach your nose (like on your chest or top of your belly).
~Add 1-3 drops on a large bowl of cold water. Soak wash cloth, wring out excess water & compress on chest for aromatherapy and cooling effects.
~Inhale directly from bottle, moving bottle side to side across both nostrils (avoid contact with skin), taking 3-5 slow, deep breathes through nose. Repeat as needed.
