Why Use a Massage Oil During Pregnancy?

Pregnancy brings a lot of changes in your body, not just a growing bump, but it can cause all types of little aches and pains as your bump and bub continue to grow.  So it becomes increasingly important to practice great self-care rituals and relaxation.  A great way to do so, is to introduce a massage oil, specifically designed for pregnancy into this routine.  With this, comes a number of benefits:

1. Increases relaxation

Introducing a massage oil into your routine can help increase relaxation as it allows you to establish a calming environment, where you can sit or lie down and just take a moment for yourself and your bub.  With calming essential oils, like our Lavender and Frankincense blend, you can truly focus on the calming moment you have been able to spoil yourself with as you gently massage the beautiful plant based oils into your skin

2. Alleviates aches and pains

As your body changes during pregnancy, you may find a lot of tension building up in your lower body, leading to aches and pains in your joints and muscles.  Using a massage oil can be a great product to help alleviate any pain or discomfort.  Massaging can help improve blood flow/circulation which assists in decreasing swelling and associated pain. 

3. Facilitates bonding with bub and your partner

Using a massage oil can help you bond with your baby and partner.  It gives you the time to focus on your baby's movements and initiates a closeness as you massage your bump.  It can also allow you to bond with your partner who may like to take part in the massage and assist in massaging the hard to reach aches and pains as your bump grows.

4. Can help improve skin elasticity/health

Using a massage oil helps to increase your skin's hydration whilst also nourishing it with beautiful plant oils that contain essential skin vitamins.  The act of massaging increases blood circulation to the area which helps to improve the skin's elasticity as it grows to accomodate your baby.  It can also help deliver essential nutrients from the blood stream to in demand areas which can help accelerate the healing process and potentially assist in preventing/fading stretch marks.

Overall, there are a number of benefits when it comes to trying a massage oil during pregnancy.  But the most important one is that you are taking care of yourself and creating an environment in which you can relax and unwind.  So, why not try a massage oil today, to help enhance your pregnancy experience?
