Understanding Postpartum Depression

PPD is more than just feeling baby blues. It's a clinical condition that can leave you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and disconnected. Symptoms like fatigue, difficulty sleeping, and changes in appetite are common. While the exact cause is unknown, hormonal fluctuations and the immense pressure of new parenthood play a significant role.

The Power of Scent: How Aromatherapy Lotions Can Help

Aromatherapy uses essential oils extracted from plants to promote emotional and physical well-being.  Indu Aromatherapy's carefully crafted aromatherapy lotions offer a convenient and safe way to harness the power of scent for stress relief.

Calming Scents for Postpartum

  • Lavender: This classic oil is known for its calming and relaxing properties. It can help ease anxiety, promote sleep, and create a sense of peace.

  • Bergamot: Uplifting and invigorating, bergamot oil can combat feelings of fatigue and negativity, leaving you feeling more positive.

  • Clary Sage: Known for its balancing effect on hormones, clary sage oil can be particularly helpful in regulating emotions during the postpartum period.

How to Use Your Indu Aromatherapy Lotion

For a moment of self-care, massage a small amount of lotion onto your temples, wrists, or soles of your feet. Inhale deeply and allow the calming scents to work their magic. You can also apply the lotion before bedtime to promote restful sleep.
