Increase the chances of conception by using natural remedies, such as essential oils for getting pregnant.
Trouble Getting Pregnant
More and more women are facing difficulties getting pregnant. While having trouble conceiving is definitely not a new thing, in today’s world, overall fertility seems to be waning away.
If you look closely, it seems the stacks are against women conceiving easily. Modern food laced with artificial flavors, preservatives, and pesticides, which cause hormonal imbalances that are a prime culprit in infertility. Women are using more cosmetic, hygiene and self-care products than ever before, which adds to the body’s toxin burden. Not to forget, more women are choosing their careers over child-bearing, and when they are finally ready to start a family, age becomes a significant barrier to getting pregnant easily.
More than 10% of couples struggle to get pregnant within 1 year. Sometimes the causes of infertility may be clear, such as chronic stress, hormonal imbalances or uterine fibroids. But many times, the cause of infertility is often not known.
How Do Essential Oils Help Increase Fertility?
Out of hundreds of essential oils known to man, only a few are renown for having properties that can help bolster fertility and help you get pregnant. These are some of the ways in which essential oils help in improving the chances of conception:
Balancing the Hormones
In almost all cases of infertility, it is found that the hormones are often imbalanced. Correcting the imbalances in the endocrine system would, therefore, solve any difficulties in conception. Essential oils can help improve the chances of conception by supporting the hormones. These essential oils include Sweet fennel, clary sage, geranium, anise, sage, tarragon, and myrrh.
Supporting the Uterus
Many women have trouble sustaining a pregnancy due to weak uterine muscles. Certain essential oils can help strengthen and support uterine function, thereby helping to conceive and carry a pregnancy to full term. These include: clary sage, rose otto, myrrh, frankincense, jasmine, cypress, clove.
Correcting Infertile Cervical Mucus
Some women are faced with thick cervical mucus (also known as infertile cervical mucus) that acts as a barrier that prevents sperm from traveling smoothly through the cervix. Essential oils such as frankincense, geranium, cedarwood, citriodora, and cardamom act as natural mucosal thinners that can help with conception.
Essential oils work wonders in boosting libido. Low libido can greatly impede the chances of getting pregnant so make use of oils such as rose otto, jasmine, ylang-ylang, cinnamon, and others, to boost libido.
Stress can be a vicious cycle when it comes to fertility. Chronic stress is a known cause of difficulty getting pregnant. Yet again, facing difficulty getting pregnant can also be a source of stress, anxiety, and tension. Essential oils that can help relieve stress and induce relaxation include Lavender, vetiver, sandalwood, ylang-ylang, wild orange, and others.
The accumulation of toxins can bring about many health problems, including infertility or difficulty in conceiving. Detoxification has to play a major part in your journey to get healthy and conceive naturally. Some of the best essential oils for detoxification include Lemon, coriander, carrot seed, rosemary, and fennel.
