Aromatherapy and essential oils for expecting and new moms
Pregnancy is a beautiful and amazing time in any woman's life, but it can also take its toll on your body. Morning sickness, stretch marks, heartburn, back pain, and other issues can arise throughout your pregnancy. At Koala Baby we’ve developed a collection of special essential oil combinations, specifically designed to get you through the challenges of pregnancy and motherhood with comfort and easy
First Trimester Support
The first few months of pregnancy can be challenging for many new mothers and even for those who’ve already experienced the joy of childbirth. During this early stage of the process many of the issues that arise affect your digestion and how you react to the taste and smell of foods. Nausea, morning sickness, heartburn, changes in appetite and problems with constipation can make it hard to eat or enjoy food.
This combination of essential oils includes Lemon Peel, Grapefruit Peel, Peppermint, Frankincense, and Eucalyptus. It is intended primarily for use as an aromatherapy aid, to help calm you and to help you fight nausea. The bright citrus aromas and the cool calming scents of peppermint and eucalyptus will help to keep you, and your tummy at ease.
Try adding this essential oil blend to your favorite essential oil diffuser, or by just putting a few drops into your shower or bath, to get the most out of the aromatherapy benefits that it can offer.
Second and Third Trimester Support
As your pregnancy advances into the later stages the strain placed on your body by carrying increases day by day. The weight of the new life in your tummy can cause lower back pain, stretch marks, edema, and general muscle stiffness. Additionally, you may find your energy levels decreasing or experience general fatigue.
This unique blend of essential oils includes Orange Sweet Peel, Bergamot, Sandalwood Heartwood, Neroli Flower, Petitgrain Leaf, and Lavender. Not only is excellent for aromatherapy, creating a soothing and calming atmosphere to help you relax and de-stress after a long day, it can also be combined with a massage oil base, or with a moisturizer to help with soreness and tension held in the body.

Important note regarding this essential oil blend: Some of these essential oils in this blend (Ylang-Ylang and Rose Otto Flower) is meant to increase the regularity of contractions —in order to make the delivery process smoother and easier for you. You should not use this essential oil blend during the first trimester as it may cause false contractions which could be harmful to you and your baby, and could even result in miscarriage.
Childbirth takes a lot. Afterward, you can feel drained, exhausted, out of balance, and out-of-sorts. The hormonal changes which occur in the days and weeks following the birth of your bundle of joy can be severe even for experienced mothers.
This blend is designed to help balance a new mother's hormones and hence may aid recovery and restore the equilibrium of mind and body immediately after childbirth.
