INTO THE DEEP
This is a body oil that helps you surrender to the intensity of birth and avoid unnecessary interventions. Can be used from onset of labour.
Being able to sink into the power of contractions is key to having an undisturbed birth. It’s important that you can find your way deep down into an internal space where you can rest submerged as the waves of labour pass through you. This is a place where you can become at one with whatever arises, and transcend the need to classify your sensations or experiences as “good” or ”bad”.
To support this, we’ve developed a blend of organic frankincense, geranium, palmarosa, sandalwood and eucalyptus that help you keep your focus during the more intense phases of birth. The blend helps you work with the contractions and gives you the resolve you need to let your body do its work.
Directions: Massage onto the body during birth, or place a few drops on a damp cloth to inhale.
- Use as a massage oil or inhale from a cloth during birth to descend into the unknown depths and surrender to the contractions that will bring you your baby
- Use as body oil for smooth, fragrant skin when not pregnant.
- Helps you embrace the more challenging experiences of life, to accept darkness as an essential part of rebirth and serves as a guide in the journey into the underworld
Eucalyptus opens up your lungs so that you can breathe more deeply and helps you focus on your breath.
Frankincense is a resin incense often used in the Catholic church and elsewhere to support contact with something higher – communion with the divine. Helps you connect with your higher self and your unborn child.
Palmarosa is a flexible, flowing grass that offers you tolerance and adaptability. When the contractions become stronger we can become fearful and start to tense up – palmarosa helps us to go with the flow.
Geranium is the essence of motherhood, gifts you harmony and help us to feel nurtured and safe.
Sandalwood is good for meditative states, opens up the doors of perception and gives us courage and strength.
The base oils are sunflower, apricot and Vitamin E.
