It is an honour to be back again, this time we are chatting about after your sweet babe arrives, and what hippie dippie tips and tricks this oil crazy mama has for you.
I desperately wish I had oils in my life for all 4 of my births and postpartum, but sadly I had not yet been enlightened to the world of NATURAL until my 3rd daughter was just over one years old.
When I look back at my bookend births, (yes we are done, if you hear I am having a 5th, pray…. A LOT!) I wish that I had known what could help heal my body physically and more important maybe, mentally and emotionally.
Let’s give you a little back story. I have struggled with mental health, anxiety, depression, a borderline personality disorder, since I was 12 years old. I NEVER fathomed how hard it would hit me after giving birth to my precious, beautiful, first born daughter. Holland was the light of my life, but that light flickered something fierce that first year of her life. I cried a lot. I struggled to eat properly. I was lonely and sad and defeated. I felt like a failure more days than not. And I longed to have something to support me, and had I known having a few simple oils on hand could have brought back the joy of that sweet babes first year of life, I would of embarked on this crazy oil journey long ago.
Fast forward, to welcoming our 4th babe into the world. NOW, now I have the tools and the knowledge and the support I needed back when Holland was born. Not only was I able to help my body heal so much quicker, but my mind, my emotions, my heart healed quicker too.
Cause I had 3 other kids to still parent, and homeschool and a business to run, on top of a newborn. I didn’t have the ‘luxury’ I had with just one, to sleep when they slept, to get out of the house when I wanted to. I also didn’t have the ‘luxury’ to NOT get myself together and fast after she arrived.
And I had dark, twisty days, BUT I had Jesus and PEACE… literally, I diffused and applied a LOT of our Peace blend. Most of this dark twistiness, on top of the usual postpartum hormonal emotional gunk, was that my close friend had lost her beautiful, 92 day old baby while I was expecting Iris. She put her down to help another one of her children and came back and she was just gone. Just died, in her bed. So, I struggled with putting down my baby, with sleeping and not watching her breath, with not checking on my other kids while they slept. I literally just rotated between rooms, watching the rise and fall of their chests. Until my husband said “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! You have GOT to have an oil that can help you with this.” And then it hit me, like a ton of bricks, HECK YES I DO! From that moment forward as soon as those CRAZY little wheels started turning, I prayed and applied my peace rollerball over my heart, my wrists and my feet, and within moments, there was peace.
So, whether you are longing for postpartum healing physically, or emotionally, I can help. PLEASE just reach out.

Now before I share my laundry list with you, I want to make sure that you are aware not NOT all essential oils are created equally. As the FDA and Health Canada have no standard of what you can call a pure oil, knowing what is in your bottle is safe, is of utmost...
