Calming Massage Oil 'Relax & Breathe'
Research shows that massage in pregnancy can reduce anxiety and interestingly massage in labour can reduce the length of labour! This sumptuous blend of natural plant oils enriched with Arnica, Chamomile and Frankincense will help to soothe both body and mind. With its gorgeous light aroma and silky finish we're sure Relax and Breathe will help to restore calm and comfort.
Relax and Breathe is safe to use throughout pregnancy and labour for:
- To relieve aches and strains including swollen legs and ankles
- Bonding with baby (massaging your bump after the first trimester)
- Involving your partner (asking them to give you a massage in labour)
How to use:
Warm the oil between your hands before massaging. Only apply gentle pressure. If massaging the legs use upwards strokes towards the heart and avoid varicose veins. Avoid massaging the abdomen during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
