Ah, the wonders of motherhood! Bringing life into the world is nothing short of a miracle, but it's also no secret that childbirth can be one of the most stressful and painful experiences a woman goes through. While many have turned to medications for relief, there's been a surge in interest towards more natural methods. One such method? Aromatherapy. And no, it's not just about making the room smell pleasant!
A recent study set out to explore the effects of neroli oil, a popular essential oil known for its soothing properties, on easing the anxiety and pain experienced by women during childbirth. Here’s a simple breakdown of what the research found.

Whether you are a beginner with essential oils or you are on your way to becoming an experienced aromatherapist, you should be familiar with carrier oils, the benefits offered from them, and the reasons for using them alongside essential oils. The primary reason carrier oils are used is as a safe way to dilute essential oils and ‘carry’ them to your skin, allowing you to use essential oils topically in a safe way that allows you to experience their benefits. Many carrier oils are unscented or have a very light scent which means that they won’t interfere with the aromatherapy benefits from the essential oil itself. However, many of these carrier oils can also contribute in their own ways by providing additional benefits. Carrier oils don’t get the same amount of attention and focus as essential oils, so it can be hard to know which carrier oil to use for which purpose. We have compiled a list of a few of our favorite carrier oils and what they may be used for in an effort to help you understand them better.

The reality of our existence is that we get out of the world what we put into it. One that is continuously putting negativity out into the world is only going to see that same negativity reflected back to them. In the same way, if we are choosing to notice all of the good that comes out of this world and put that same goodness back in, we are going to feel far more fulfilled and happy. Being grateful sounds like something that should be easy to implement, but in reality, practicing gratitude in everyday life is much harder than it may seem. Here at Jade Bloom, we are aware of the incredible changes that can come about from improving one’s ability to practice gratitude, so we have provided a guide to the science behind gratitude as well as specific steps you can take to improve your practice of gratitude on a daily basis.
A new year potentially means a new list of resolutions and perhaps a subsequently fresh mindset.

We have compiled a list of books that we recommend if this is the sort of growth you’re hoping to achieve in 2023.

By referencing advice given by those who regularly achieve their long-term goals, we can help you unlock the secrets to being able to keep and follow through with your long-term resolutions and goals.
