  Essential Oils & Breastfeeding: Tips for Effective Use


Essential oils are all-natural, and the savvy breastfeeding mother has already learned which ones are or aren’t safe, or how the manner in which they are used affects their safety. But which ones work for postpartum or breastfeeding issues? They are expensive, but are they effective? If so, for what? Find out about essential oils that may help to alleviate such issues as candidiasis, postpartum cramps, emotional issues, and sleep. When applied to the skin, should they be used near the nipple? What about shelf life? How can a mother find a credible advisor, a credible brand, the best way to dilute the essential oil? The goal of this session is to provide anticipatory guidance for breastfeeding mothers who wish to use essential oils for common breastfeeding and/or postpartum problems.
