Your body is going through so many changes when you are pregnant, it can be overwhelming! Even though you are probably putting your baby first, it is important to do a few self-care activities for yourself so you can feel beautiful inside and out during the pregnancy. Doing something for yourself can help boost your mood, reduce stress, and reduce anxiety. Which in the end will benefit your baby too!
Little Tree Wellness & Apothecary
I was recently introduced to Little Tree Wellness & Apothecary and instantly fell in love. The beautiful owner Jazmine has a botanical skincare and wellness line for mamas, babies, and the whole family. She uses high-quality ingredients that are sourced from local organic growers and environmentally conscious companies. Jazmine is also a Holistic Nutritionist like me. On top of her fantastic skincare line, she offers nutrition and herbal medicine consultations, private prenatal yoga instruction, and plant-based cooking. Jazmine sent me her pregnancy products which include Mother Wellness Tea, Face Serum, and Belly Balm.
Mother Wellness Tea
This nourishing tea will help you feel beautiful inside and out during pregnancy. It is 100% organic and caffeine-free. The nourishing ingredients like nettle and raspberry leaf make it high in vitamins and minerals that support a healthy pregnancy. They also strengthen the body, support nervous system, tone the uterus and aid digestion. You can safely start drinking this tea during the second trimester and continue after your baby is born.
You guys know I am a tea connoisseur and am pretty picky about the teas I drink. During my first pregnancy, I drank raspberry leaf tea straight up, which was fine but not overly exciting flavour wise. I love that Mother Wellness Tea contains nourishing herbs along with tasty herbs like chamomile, spearmint and rosehips. They add such a beautiful gentle flavour that I really enjoyed hot and cold.
Revive Botanical Face Serum
Pregnancy can really do a number on your skin! From the hormonal acne to super dry skin it can be difficult to feel beautiful inside and out during pregnancy. Having a natural high-quality face serum can really help.
Revive Botanical Face Serum is a nourishing, hydrating and rejuvenating facial oil. It is made with all the good stuff like organic jojoba oil, evening primrose oil, rosehip seed oil and infused with rose petals, calendula and chamomile apricot oil.
I find my skin gets really dry during pregnancy (regardless of how much water I drink and fish oil I take) so using this hydrating serum was really helpful for me. It also smells fantastic due to the addition of organic essential oils like frankincense, lavender and palmarosa.
It is an oil-based serum so I recommend giving it 20 minutes to soak in before heading out of the house so you aren’t super shiny. I like to use it after my shower at night so my pores are open and ready to receive this beautiful serum.
Beautiful Belly Balm
About 90% of women will get stretch marks during the 6th or 7th month of pregnancy. During my first pregnancy, I got them around my hips as they expanded to accommodate my growing baby. They can also appear on your butt, boobs and belly. A great way to prevent stretch marks (and avoid an itchy belly and nipples) is to keep those areas well moisturized.
Beautiful Belly Balm will help you feel beautiful inside and out during pregnancy. It has nourishing ingredients to support growing skin tissue, reduce the appearance of stretch marks, improve collagen, and soften and moisturize your skin. This balm is infused with Gotu kola, lavender, chamomile and calendula. It is like food for your skin with lots of minerals, vitamins and fatty acids.
I like to apply Beautiful Belly Balm to my hips, butt, boobs and belly this every night before I go to bed. I take a few moments to enjoy massaging this smooth balm into my skin. My baby is pretty active right before bedtime so I also use it as a quiet time to connect with my baby. Sometimes baby will kick my hand while I massage my belly, it is so cute.
