Think that aromatherapy is just something that can make bath time more relaxing? Think again! Aromatherapy is capable of so much more than that. In fact, it’s the reason I have a son today! Back in 1996, my husband and I were trying to get pregnant. When we ran into some problems, we went to a bunch of different doctors. None of their suggestions worked, and I wound up totally exhausted. Part of what made the process so grueling was the fact that we didn’t know why this was happening. There are lots of medical issues that can keep people from having children, but in our case, there was no medical explanation. None of our doctors could tell us what the problem was. They didn’t even have any educated guesses. It was just a bunch of shoulder-shrugging. As luck would have it, I was doing some reading about the benefits of essential oils. At first, my reading was strictly business, since I was introducing essential oils to the Ecuadorian market, and I wanted to know everything about them. But what I read quickly turned personal. In fact, it changed my entire life! Among their other benefits, essential oils can act as a “tune up” for your entire body. Here’s how:
They help you relax
When you’re going through an infertility problem, relaxation is non-existent
. Unfortunately, that can make it even harder to get pregnant! Luckily, essential oils helped me live in the moment and experience more peace
They balance your hormones and reproductive system
Amazingly, they work for both men and women. Since my husband and I had gone through years of fertility treatments, we clearly needed some help in this department!
They stimulate different “drainage areas”
Your skin, kidneys, and lungs are all responsible for getting toxins out of your body. But if these “drainage areas” aren’t working the way they should, it can lead to a toxin build-up. Luckily, essential oils can make these “drains” work harder. Just one month later, Juan Martin was conceived!
I wanted to share my success with other couples, so I decided to offer the oil blends I used as part of the Aromadina line. Here’s what worked for me:
- Cristina’s blend: fennel, clary sage, geranium, lavender, grapefruit. This actually is a blend that I currently sell in my Aromandina line as Woman’s Help Body Oil
- Martin’s bend: the same, plus 4 each of Basil and Spruce essential oil
So far, more than 20 couples have seen success with these oils. I don’t consider myself a fertility specialist, though. Instead, I believe that aromatherapy is a great way to bring your body back into balance. And once you’re balanced, amazing things can happen! © 2012, Cristina Proano-Carrion, Aromandina LLC
