2 Essential Oils & Pregnancy – An Alternative to OTC Medications & Prescriptive Drugs “Essential oils have been used safely for hundreds of years by thousands of pregnant women in the form of perfumes, bath essences, and scented soap.” --- Jane Buckle, RN, PhD – Clinical Aromatherapy – Essential Oils in Practice, 2003“Aromatherapy is nurturing and comforting, and promotes a sense of happy well-being in pregnant women; it can also help ease some of the discomforts of pregnancy. One of the interesting links between aromatherapy and pregnancy is that pregnant women have a heightened sense of smell. This needs to be taken into consideration when choosing which essential oils to use …” ---Gill Farrer-Halls – The Aromatherapy Bible, 2005
3 How Can You Naturally Approach Pregnancy, Labor & Post-Partum Care? With Pure, Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils
4 (Oil sacs on peppermint leaf) What Is An Essential Oil?Natural aromatic compounds found in plantsSteam distilled or cold pressed extractionPowerful, safe benefits without side effectsEssential Oils come from plants---roots, leaves, flowers, branches, skin, bark, resins, grasses, podsEach plant stores oils in different ways- Steam distillation is used in high quality oils to extract the “essence” and make essential oils- Great quantities of plant material compressed under steam vapors that collect into a vat- separated into oil vs “floral water”….essential oil is then drained off for useHere is a picture of a peppermint leaf – magnified- note sacs of oil on the leaf- contents of sacs released when compressed in processingEO’s are VERY powerful! Example: 1 drop of doTERRA Peppermint essential oil = 28 cups of Peppermint tea(Oil sacs on peppermint leaf)

7 3 Simple and Safe Models for Use Aromatic DiffusionPurify rooms or changeemotionDiffuserDrop in handsDrop on tissueSpray on a surface or nearbyJust open/smell from bottleTopical ApplicationApply directly to skin or in a carrier oilInternal UseIn a capsule, under the tongue, in water or honeyThere are 3 ways we can use essential oils. The first is by Aromatically Diffusing oils.Let me start by saying that we typically use anywhere from 2 – 5 drops of an oil per application. So no matter what method you use, that is the quantity you typically use.Like the unique dōTERRA Lotus Diffuser I have running over here (point), we can diffuse oils into the air to benefit everyone who is breathing in the area. This particular diffuser is fantastic because it has a small device inside it that vibrates at 10,000 vibrations a minute, creating this misting effect. We all know oil and water don’t mix, so as the water molecules are being fractionated into mist, the essential oil is riding on the mist into tiny particles that we can take in through our nose to effect our entire system.You don’t have to have a diffuser like this to take in oils aromatically though.You can put a drop on your hand and cup it around your nose and inhale.You can put a few drops on a kleenex or cotton ball and put it in your car vent.You can add it to a spray bottle and squirt it into the air.You can simply open the bottle and in hale the beautiful scents.Whichever method you choose---when you inhale an essential oil, your body takes the scent in through your olfactory system. This creates change in the limbic system which is thought to be the primary part of our body where emotion is generated. So, we use oils to effect MOOD or EMOTION and because we’re taking oils in through our lungs when we breathe, they effect our RESPIRATORY system.The second way we use essential oils is by applying them TOPICALLY. This is how most people are familiar with oils or scents.We can put a few drops of an essential oil into a base carrier oil or lotion and apply it to our skin or feet.Many of these oils we can apply “neat” or undiluted directly to the area of concern.We use oils topically for both the local effect ---like aching feet, a headache, or sore muscles. But once we apply the oil to our tissue, the body begins to move the therapeutic value throughout our system and we therefore effect the entire body system in time.The third way to use oils is INTERNALLY. Tonight we are serving you LEMON WATER….which is one of the ways you can take in the powerful therapeutic effects of essential oils. Just a drop in a glass of water and you’re getting all the value of hydration and antioxidant protection in one….plus it tastes good!You can put a few drops of essential oil in a vegetable capsule (like this one) that you get at the health food store. You can put drops right under your tongueAdd them to water, any beverage.The reason we take oils internally is to target the internal organs such as our DIGESTIVE system, our MOUTH, our THROAT, or organs such as the LIVER and our UROGENTITAL TRACT.Oils taken internally will have a rapid effect as they hit our blood stream quickly.Very safe and gentleKeep out of eyes, ears, and noseDilute with oil, not waterCheck for skin sensitivity with first time use
8 Recommended Oils Application Great, natural way to bond with your child throughout their life!All oils require repeat application every 3-4 hoursAlways store oils safely – on high shelves!Infants – highly dilutedBest choices: diffuser, on feet dilutedOK to apply to torso if highly dilutedToddlers + Young ChildrenUnder 6 = ¼ normal dosageUnder 12 = ½ normal dosageBest choices depend on area of concern:Diffuse, apply to feet, dilute and apply externallyOk for internal use in water or capsule if they can swallow itEars – drops onto cotton ball – wipe around outside of ear. Cotton ball in ear.Teenagers + College agesame as adult dosage and application
9 Essential Oil Safety Very safe and gentle with few side effects Keep out of eyes, ears, and noseDilute with Fractionated coconut oil, not waterSkin sensitivity primary safety issueFollow all label directions
10 Know the Quality of Your Source! Seek counsel from experienced oil usersWhy do some oils say “external use only” and “keep away from children”??When in doubt…use topical Lavender onlyAvoid inexpensive “aromatherapy” oilsSource for highest quality availableRemember, LESS IS MORE for effectDon’t expect your doctor to know!
