Aromatherapy used during pregnancy is a very powerful tool in that it can help to bring balance and harmony to the mind and body. Aromatherapy works on two levels which are the physical and the emotional. Physically the essential oils pass through the skin through massage, where by molecules of essential oils then pass through to the internal organs, muscles and tissues of the body.
The beautiful aromas of the essential oils also triggers a chemical reaction which stimulates an impulse to a part of the brain which is responsible for memory. This is why we often talk about certain smells evoking memories from the past
Aromatherapy during pregnancy and during the postnatal period is very safe and it is a wonderful complimentary treat which can be used along side orthodox medicine.
