MoonDragon's Aromatherapy Information
AROMATHERAPY FOR MISCARRIAGE




Having a miscarriage is a highly emotional experience for a woman, as well as being a shocking and painful physical experience and a more subtle hormonal one. Even those women for whom the pregnancy was an "accident" can find themselves feeling deeply disappointed and empty. There may also be guilt and anger.

It does not ease the pain to learn that half of all pregnancies end in miscarriage, usually so early the woman does not notice. Nor to be told that one can always try again. A baby has been lost and there is grieving. For those who have repeatedly miscarried there are several areas of research which can offer hope. A treatment has been developed for a common problem of the woman's immune system rejecting the father's cells and baby and placenta tissue as a "foreign" substance. In successful pregnancies, an immune response is made which prevents this happening; the new treatment stimulates antibodies by immunizing women with cells from the father's blood. Another research concentrates on adjusting the time at which the pituitary gland sends out its message so that hormones will mature the female egg, enabling conception to take place.

Women with rhesus negative blood, and those who do not know their blood group should consult with their midwife as soon as possible after a miscarriage that takes place after about 8 weeks of pregnancy. This is because a woman with this blood type may have made antibodies against rhesus positive blood at the time of miscarriage if the baby was in the positive blood group, which one cannot know. As a precaution, and to prevent these antibodies working against the next baby if that is in the positive blood group too, an injection called anti-D (Rhogam) is routinely recommended and given within 72 hours to women who miscarry or have a termination, and those who give birth to a baby in the positive blood groups. Without the injection, the next baby, if it has rhesus positive blood, will develop jaundice and may require a blood transfusion after birth.

The essential oils recommended for use after a miscarriage not only help to bring the body back into its pre-pregnancy state, but they also heal on the emotional and spiritual levels. Choose a single oil or make yourself a blend using those given below, adding 5 drops of essential oil to each 1 teaspoon of base vegetable oil for a body oil and 6 to 8 drops in a bath.

    It is important to come to terms with the emotions you experience after a miscarriage so that anxiety does not affect your next pregnancy, because anxiety is in itself a cause of miscarriage. Exploring your feelings can be difficult to do because miscarriage is still a taboo subject and friends may tend to belittle the experience, all in good faith, with statements like "There was probably something wrong with the baby," "It happens all the time; you are lucky it did not happen later," or "Well, it was an accident anyway, wasn't it?" - all of which attempt to close the door on the subject rather than opening it for discussion. If you find that you need someone to talk to who understands what an emotional upheaval you are going through, contact RESOLVE, Inc., a national self-help organization.

    NARCISSUS / NARCISSE ESSENTIAL OIL PRODUCTS

    Narcissus / Narcisse - Hope & Awakening


    Latin name: Narcissus poeticus. Family name: Amaryllidacaea. Narcissus is a botanical name for the sort of springtime bulbous plant of amaryllis family, Amaryllidaceae. There are around 26 of wild and several hundreds of cultivated variances, and although it is mainly considered to be a spring-time flower, some sorts bloom in autumn. Sorts are different by color, shape and size. The flower can be yellow or white, but also combined white and yellow, orange, red, and pink. The flowers, growing on a strong stalk, can be star-shaped or trumpet shaped, simple or multi-flowered. The leaves are long and light-green. The cultivated varieties are roughly divided into three categories, based on their general characteristics. Those are: a Daffodil with four to six flattened, grass-like leaves, and its flower stalk bears a single flower with a long, trumpet like corona; a jonquil, with two to four narrow, cylindrical, rush-like leaves, and its flower stalk bears two to six relatively small flowers with short coronas; and narcissus, similar to Daffodil, but its flattened flower stalk bears four to eight flowers with short coronas. Narcissus is very resistant, and almost all sorts can survive the winter without problems, and therefore once planted bulb can grow flowers for years. Narcissus originates from South-West Europe and North Africa, but some sorts can be found in Central Asia and China, and some sources claim that narcissus originated from Persia, and was brought to China in the 8th century by the traders traveling on the Silk Route. The oil is extracted from several variances of flowers: Narcissus poeticus, Narcissus tazetta and Narcissus jonquill. Sorts that bloom in May, among which the most important and quite rare variance is Narcissus poeticus, are used for production of essential oil for perfume industry.

    The name narcissus was derived from the Greek word ‘narke’, later adopted by Romans as ‘narce’, meaning ‘to be numb’, what referred to narcotic effects of narcissus, which can be overwhelming. Narcissus was used from the ancient of times for various purposes. Romans were using narcissus unguent for creation of fragrance called Narcissinum. Arabs used it in their perfumery, as well as to cure baldness. In India, the oil of narcissus, as well as fragrant oils of sandal, jasmine, and rose, is applied to body before prayer. In France it was used for treating epilepsy and hysteria. It was used in cosmetics as an additive to powders, soaps and lipsticks. In China narcissus is associated with good fortune and gain. And today narcissus is a symbol of awaking and hope.

    The scent of narcissus oil is strong and rich; it reminds of smell of dark green leaves with traces of hyacinth and jasmine. The oil is extracted by enfleurage (technique of extraction of fragrant components by oil). Nowadays it is also extracted by volatile solvents, a technique that produces both concrete and absolute. It takes 500 kilograms of flowers to produce 1 kilogram of concrete, or 300 grams of absolute, what makes narcissus oil expensive. Today, the major quantities of narcissus essential oil are produced in the Netherlands and in the Grasse region of France.

    The essential oil of narcissus is rather strong and heady, and may influence the nervous system. It calms nerves and helps release stress and tension. Still, it requires careful handling, because higher doses of narcissus oil can cause headache and vomiting. Also, allergic reactions to narcissus oil have been reported.
