  • Trying to conceive can be a stressful thing when you don’t get pregnant straight away. Stress and mindset blocks play a huge part in preventing our bodies from being receptive to pregnancy and can make carrying your pregnancy through to full term a challenge for many. What sources of stress are affecting your everyday mood and confidence? Let me know in the comments!

  • I’d read that blue tansy which is in the deep blue rub is not safe to use during pregnancy. Do you have a source I can look into that supports blue tansy being safe to use while pregnant?

  • Great video. I’m in third trimester of pregnancy and have used DoTerra for a few years. I have not used the lifelong vitalitybpack tho and am thinking of starting them for the end of pregnancy and nursing. I see it has peppermint so I’m wondering if it will harm milk supply? Have you used or any thoughts? Also jaundice has been an issue in previous babies…any tips? I read lemon but I was thinking a drop in roller ball with frac. Coconut oil. Also frankincense at birth?

  • Love this! Thank you for your information! I picked up some new tips (baby 4 was my first “oily baby” and the LLV made a HUGE difference) for my 5th pregnancy. Very excited!

  • I have manuka oil…… it ok.Its stronger than tea tree, would love your input. Also the fertility combo to be used before becoming pregnant?

  • I tried for several years to get pregnant. but the result was always negative. but as a last resort I followed this guide infertilityinwomen.com/how-to-get-pregnant-fast/ is a natural guide that gave me the possibility of being a mother, ��‍♀����

  • Wow, I didn’t know about all of this! She is so knowledgeable and explains all the information so clearly. Thanks for sharing, cheers!
