The sense of smell never gets the credit it deserves!
Sound, sight, touch, smell, and taste.
As a childbirth educator and doula I encourage the families I work with to utilize the five main senses as much as possible while they prepare, and during their labor & during their birth!
Soothing, familiar and even energizing scents can greatly enhance any environment and give a boost to everyone in it! I bring a dōTERRA diffuser and a variety of oils to use during my childbirth preparation classes, prenatal meetings, and even births!
Some of my favorites... to name a few:
Serenity: to bring calm and encourage rest and relaxation... Always in my doula bag!!
Peppermint: to ward off nausea, or even a few drops in the bathroom to encourage the bladder and bowels.
Wild Orange, Grapefruit, & Lemon: to energize and awaken!
