Anything with the scent of Lavender and Rose makes my nose swoon. I was so excited to test this maternity trio out by even though I am not pregnant. If I’m honest I didn’t go as far as bathing in the postpartum herbal sitz but the jar full of flower petals made it tempting.
I have to admit, it has been awhile since I’ve been really obsessed with any products until this little organic bottle of joy entered my life!
The Pregnancy Mist is a collection of Ylang Ylang, Lavender and Geranium Rose which promotes anti anxiety and calming effects. A perfect companion to join you on your maternity journey. Being a first time mom, ridden with anxiety at every given moment and juggling a hundred things at once, I didn’t need to be pregnant to feel the relief I received from spritzing myself through out the day. I pretty much keep it by my side at all times now. I am also a sucker for good chic packaging and this beautifully well designed logo is modern, simple and clean something I was proud to pull out of my bag. ($25)
The Labour Massage Oil blends Neroli, Frankincense, Lavender, Bergamot and Almond Oil. The use of these oils during labour can tremendously help ease stress and relieve pain, as well as aid in relaxation. With an easy roll on application, you or your partner can apply it during the hardest of times without it getting messy. Being pocket size it will always be at arms reach!! ($40)
The Postpartum Herbal Sitz Bath is the creme de le creme! An herbal remedy of plantain flower, calendula flower, comfrey leaf, burdock, violet flower and leaf, yarrow flower, lady’s mantle flower, lemon balm leaf and sea salt. This warm sitz bath will help heal tears, eliminate hemorrhoids and relieve perineal swelling. ($20)
I love that this trio has been created with what mama’s need during all three stages of child birthing, the pregnancy, the labour and the postpartum! A lot of us are left blind once the baby is born, concentrating on lactation and the well being of our newborn. There is not a lot of thought or support on our healing after birth. This is why I appreciate the thoughtfulness and passion which Paula Mallis of The Birth Stories put into her new product line. Being a mother, doula and prenatal/postpartum yoga teacher she has the experience to know what expecting mama’s need.
