|Increase Fertility with Aromatherapy
Fertility problems are something that usually take more than one tactic to resolve. There are Fertility Treatments, Fertility Drugs, Fertility Diets, you name it, there's probably a "fertility solution" attached to it!!
My point is, that sometimes it's so overwhelming to try and fall pregnant that we somehow miss the old basics. In my case, I missed out altogether on trying aromatherapy as a treatment for my infertility, but have spoken to a few ladies who absolutely swear by it!
Keep in mind that when using aromatherapy to increase fertility there are several things to keep in mind. You need to be careful about what essential oils you use. It is often best to purchase your oils from a naturopath, or health food store, or even better to check with your doctor, as there are oils that are not suitable for use with some medical conditions and illnesses including pregnancy.
Once you have found some safe essential oils to use, there are 3 common methods of putting their benefits to use:
* Direct Application, normally via massage: Be sure to mix your oils with an oil base such as grapeseed or almond oil as pure essential oils are normally too strong for direct application to the skin. Use approximately 2 drops of essential oil to 10-12 drops of base oil. Massage is great for relaxation, helping your body to destress and also great for your relationship. Massage is a sensual way to connect with your partner, because as many of us know, trying to conceive can be a tense time.
* In the Bath: Adding 5 to 10 drops of essential oil into a relaxing warm tub and soaking is a wonderful way to experience the benefits of aromatherapy. If you would prefer diluting the oil in a base, use approximately 50% base and 50% essential oil.
* Oil Burners: Filling your home or room with the beautiful scents of many essential oils can have an amazing effect on mind and body. Many oils are thought to have relaxing and healing properties when dispersed through the air.
