Essential oils can be used to support your fertility, a healthy pregnancy, a beautiful birth, postnatal recovery and you and your family’s health and wellness.

My Introduction to Essential Oils

I initially used essential oils to make my yoga studio smell nice. It wasn’t until I was introduced to Young Living essential oils and their oil infused products that I realised their wide range of uses and potency.

After my second miscarriage, my GP carried out extensive blood tests confirming my hormones were out of whack. I had what she called “estrogen dominance” caused by chemicals that mimic oestrogen (endocrine disrupter) in the food we eat, products we use to clean our homes and use on our skin.

When I started reading labels, I was horrified to discover that even the ones that said, “natural” contained chemicals like Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (bubbles and lathers), phthalates (in artificial fragrances) and phenoxyethanol (a preservative) amongst other ingredients that I couldn’t pronounce.

This was the catalyst to swapping my household cleaning and personal care products with Young Living’s pure therapeutic-grade essential oils and oil infused products to create a low tox home environment for my family and balance my hormones.

In addition to this, I switched to a nutrient dense traditional diet and consciously conceived, had a healthy pregnancy and a drug- free vaginal birth at 40.

Becoming a parent has opened my eyes to the harmful chemicals in baby and kid’s skincare products so having Young Living products to use on my son has brought me peace of mind.

My experience has also given me the confidence to use Young Living essential oils to tools to assist my Doula clients during pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

Here’s How I Use Essential Oils:

1. Swap out personal care and household cleaning products

I’ve created a low- tox home environment by swapping out our conventional personal care and household cleaning products.

2. First-aid kit and medicine cabinet

As a parent, Young Loving essential oils have given me confidence to naturally treat everything from nappy rash, to teething, sleep issues, tummy pain, insect bites, stuffy noses and tantrums.

3. Manage emotions and moods

Essential oils help with the highest of highs and lowest of low emotions of motherhood including anxiety, stress, mama- guilt, frustration, anger, brain fog and irritability.

4. Save Time and Money 

Save Time: It’s a one stop shop and knowing they’re low tox means I don’t need to read labels.

Cost Effective: they’re concentrated so I dilute them to get 3 out of 1.

DIY: my own personal care and cleaning products with essential oils.

As a Childbirth Educator, Doula, Pre and Postnatal Yoga Teacher and Health Coach, I’ve created ‘Mamatoto Essentials’, a step-by-step guide to using the 12 essential oils in the Starter Bundle to support your pregnancy, birth, postpartum and the health of you and your family.

What are Essential Oils?

Essential Oils are highly concentrated extracts that are naturally found in and distilled from different parts of a plant including the flowers, leaves, bark, wood, roots or fruit peel. 

Are all brands of Essential Oils the same?

Unfortunately not all essential oils are of good quality. Some produces choose mass production over quality and are likely to use pesticides and fertilisers to boost their yeild.

Don’t confuse therapeutic grade essential oils with cheaper scented fragrance oils, containing artificial, man- made peteroleum- based fragrances. These are not therapeutic but toxic as they enter your bloodstream.

When it comes to what you put in and on you and your childrens’ bodies, use only the best quality- whether it’s food or personal care products or essential oils- because they all end up inside our bodies.


Why Young Living Essential Oils?

Not all essential oils are created equal. Some of the reasons I choose to use Young Living essential oils are:

  • They own their own farms.
  • They freshly distill the oils on site.
  • They do more testing than any other oils company in the world.
  • They’re beyond organic- they’re therapeutic grade.
  • The oils vibrate at frequency that is higher than the living species it originated from.
  • They’re the only oils company that doesn’t fractionate their oils (that is, they don’t double or triple distill their oils to make them smell sweeter).
  • There are no fillers, no synthetics, no pesticides, no contaminants in their oils.
