I am a huge fan of essential oils for pretty much everything, whether it be curing ailments, treating pains, or just making the house smell delightful I turn to essential oils first before anything else. When I first got pregnant this time around I suffered from some serious morning (all day) sickness and nothing touched it until I made up a roller bottle of peppermint essential oil and coconut oil. I would roll this mixture onto my temples and the back of my neck for almost instant relief.
This mixture will also help if you get headaches too. In fact there have been a few times I added some peppermint oil to my bath water for my sore hips since hitting the third trimester. The good things about oils is they are safe pretty much anytime of your life, now I will say there are some oils that are not safe to use during pregnancy, mostly because they can cause pre-term labor.
Simply Earth has a really high quality oil line that is very affordable. I personally do not recommend ingesting these oils or any essential oils unless you are under the supervision of a certified aromatherapist. I use all my oils either diffused or topically (and in the tub). So many companies out there like Young Living and doTerra boast about the highest quality and this and that and while that may be so, I simply can not justify spending $30-40 per 5mL bottle of oil that performs the same as the $5-$10 for a 10mL bottle of the same oil. Just my opinion and I am sorry if there are any of those distributors who read my blog.
Overall, I have to say this Peppermint essential oil from Simply Earth is great, works well, smells great, and affordable. A definite 5/5 stars from me.
You can find this Peppermint oil as well as others from Simply Earth on Amazon.
