A recent article titled:  If I Knew Then What I Know Now: Essential Oils for Pregnancy, Birth, and Infant Care by Sharon Castelli promotes the use of essential oils. (Read Article)  Specifically, Sharon writes “a drop of pure peppermint oil in water or on the tongue can sooth nausea, heartburn, and even promote peristalsis.”

“What I love about using oils, aside from the pleasing smells is that they work in harmony with our bodies just as they did for the plants before harvest and distillation.  In addition to their unique properties, all oils oxygenate and detox the cells. They are balancing and seem to have a natural intelligence that is in tune with our biology.  I feel blessed to know about this ancient remedy and enjoy sharing my experiences with others.”
