I’ve been so grateful to have a pretty easy first trimester. I dealt with nausea and sickness for a few weeks, but didn’t have anything major. I know so many people truly suffer with morning sickness––I can’t imagine. That being said, I’ve really struggled with scents during the first part of this pregnancy. Scents I used to enjoy are revolting, so it has severely limited not only what I eat, but the scents I use for hair and body products.
Thankfully, most of what I use on a daily basis is from Young Living which I know is safe for both me and baby. On top of being safe, because their products are 100% natural, the scents aren’t overpowering to super mama noses. These products below are some of my favourites to use each day.
Coconut-Lime Replenishing Body Butter
While I don’t have much of a bump yet, I have been using this on my stomach to help toward future stretch marks. It smells wonderfully tropical, and is perfect for rough knees and elbows, too.
Grapefruit Lip Balm
While I’ve been drinking lots each day to keep me and baby hydrated well, my lips still are very dry. I love having one of Young Living’s lip balms in my work bag, one on my nightstand, and one in my jacket pocket (just in case). If you can ever get your hands on the Vanillamint one at Christmastime, you won’t regret it. It’s heavenly.
Stress Away Roll-On
This blend of lime, cedarwood, lavender, vanilla, and ocotea was the first of Young Living’s blends that my mom and I both tried over five years ago. To this day, we’re both obsessed with it, and keep bottles hidden for emergency purposes. It’s perfect for calming me down when I need it, and helps me sleep so well at night.
Seedlings Baby Lotion
Young Living has such wonderful baby products that everyone raves about. I often have very dry skin and had been looking for a new moisturizer, so I thought, “why not"?” and ordered this baby product. I’m so glad I did, because it’s perfect for me, but I also can’t wait to use it on our little one.
There you have it! These products are definitely my go-tos right now, and I would love to get them in your hands to try, too! Feel free to send me a message for details on how to order.
