Oils for Post Natal Depression Part 3

If you are suffering from post natal depression, the first step that needs to be taken towards recovery is to learn to value yourself and to take sufficient time to look after your health.

Easing Sadness

Post natal depression is a debilitating, traumatic experience and it can feel isolating and disempowering. Using essential oils can only help to alleviate some symptoms and it must be stressed that help from health professionals, family and friends should be sought and encouraged at every stage of the way.

  • With a new born baby in the home, the best places to use your oils are on a pillow or a handkerchief.
  • Fragrance is very uplifting and you don’t need to stick to the suggested blends. Treat yourself to a favourite perfume, preferably one that brings back happy memories.

Use different scents to raise your spirits.

      New and expecting mothers face not only changes to their lifestyles, but also changes to their bodies and hormones. For some, there may be physical and mental health struggles that arise.


      1. And much the same goes for the rest of us. Male, female, old or young. So many struggle with black depression and a feeling of melancholia.
