Essential oils and other aspects of aromatherapy can be a valuable resource to support a new mum, as she recovers from birth and adjusts to motherhood. Whilst the uncertainty of what’s safe in pregnancy has been left behind; caution is advised when using essential oils during lactation and around newborns. 

It is beneficial for practitioners caring for new families to have an awareness of these considerations and know where to look for professional advice and information.

In this online workshop we will cover:

  • Safety aspects of essential oil use during lactation 
  • Benefits & practical application of aromatherapy during postpartum
  • Safety aspects of essential oil use for babies 
  • Applications & alternatives for baby care
  • Review of relevant research and case studies
