Mama Z’s Joyful Essential Oil Recipe
My mother had postpartum depression with her third and last baby, so in order to counteract that I wanted to be proactive when I became pregnant. Beyond all the prayer we sowed into not suffering from postpartum depression, I wanted something that the baby and I could experience topically and aromatically. Praise the Lord, I have never had baby blues, postpartum depression, or stretch marks of any sort thanks to this Joyful Essential Oil Recipe.
Joy is Power!
“The joy of the LORD is your strength!”
I have sold this premade item at all of my classes for many years. It's power in a bottle! Everyone raves about it. It smells good, and it works. Win!
This is hands down one of my favorite combos that we still love to this day! It makes a great oil for massages. If you have a diffuser you can put these same essential oils in your diffuser.
How do you keep the baby blues away? Did you use a salve to prevent stretch marks?
- Once you have your Mama Z's Oil Base mixed and ready, add the essential oil to 1 ounce of your pre-made base.
- Mix so the oils blend into the base.
- Store in glass container.
Safety & Contraindications
When it comes to drug interactions and contraindications, there are literally textbooks devoted to the study of essential oil safety, and I must defer to the chemists, pharmacists and experts who understand this complicated topic more than I.
With that said, as a trained researcher and doctor, I think it’s important to note that there is virtually no research out there discussing how essential oils interact with drugs in human clinical trials. Essentially, what this means is that essential oil safety is still a wild frontier in the science community and no one really knows (for certain) how essential oils will interact with drugs or your body.
Let common sense be your guide. Still, be sure to maintain proper dilutions, and general safety considerations still apply. As always, discontinue use if any adverse reactions occur and consult your physician immediately.
