The key ingredient in Happy Mama Spray is Ginger essential oil. Ginger is an herb supported by evidence based research to be both safe and effective to help reduce pregnancy nausea. In Happy Mama Spray it is meant to be a quick spritz of bliss, to get a queasy mama (or car sick kid) through the moment. A spray and a deep sniff can help battle the “baby blues” and even calm toddler rampage.
The Ugly Duckling Works its Magic
Huddling under a lush tropical flower, knobby Ginger Root is the ugly duckling of herbs. But as the centerpiece of a grandma’s famous gingerbread, or the prickling kick in ginger beer, Ginger Root shines. Ginger also has been shown to have remarkable non-culinary qualities. Clinical research in the US supports information that Ginger safely and effectively reduces the severity of nausea and vomiting during pregnancy, and Ginger is approved in both the German Pharmacopoeia and the British Herbal Compendium for anti-nausea.
Traditional Medications vs Aromatherapy
Since Happy Mama Spray is an aromatherapy spray made from pure essential oils, there are no chemical fixatives to make the fragrance last an artificially long time. As nature intended, you get an instant, naturally temporary, blast of blissful relief. Because Happy Mama Spray is safe and natural there is no problem using it again and again, as needed.
Because Happy Mama Spray has no toxic artificial fragrance oils or stabilizers, it is intended to be used by anyone who needs instant relief. There has been a great response from customers using it successfully for chemotherapy nausea, car sickness, and pukey, flu-ey kids. But its pure flower essences are not just for nausea, many people use it for a safe, natural pick-me-up when a quick blast of cheer can work wonders. Since it’s safe enough for a pregnant woman, it’s safe enough for anyone.
Ginger also plays a starring role in both exhilarating Happy Mama Body Wash and Organic Morning Wellness Tea. The tea is USDA Certified 100% Organic and especially useful for longer lasting comfort. Happy Mama Body Wash is USDA Certified Made With Organic Lime and Grapefruit essential oils, and fresh Ginger to combat queasiness.
Natural remedies are often misunderstood because they don’t correlate with the more common pharmaceuticals we’re so used to taking. Aromatherapy is not meant to act just like a synthetic drug. We think that’s a good thing! Unlike medications that have to be detoxified by your liver (and if you are pregnant, your baby’s developing liver), the herbs and essential oils chosen for Earth Mama Angel Baby products are gentle, safe, and beneficial for pregnancy (with the exception of some herbal teas that are not intended for pregnancy).
A Real Mama’s Experience Speaks Volumes
Our good friend, The Feminist Breeder, first fell in love with Happy Mama Spray a couple of years ago. In sharing her most amazing birth VBAC birth story, she recounted how the spray started as a short-term relief during her long labor and then continued to be a part of her postpartum recovery:
Throughout the most intense part of my labor, my friend misted Happy Mama Spray all around my bed, and each whiff made me feel more comforted. The scrumptious aromatherapy properties of the product helped to shift the energy of the room from an out-and-out warzone into a more peaceful place for me to birth my baby.
I loved the spray so much that it became a staple in my postpartum recovery. Any new mom knows that it’s easy to stay locked in your bedroom for days when your peanut is cluster feeding. After a few days of ‘round the clock nursing, soon that once-romantic bedroom you conceived your little miracle in starts to smell like spit-up, baby poo, and Chinese takeout. But when my bedroom started to develop the postpartum funk, I just misted it down with Happy Mama Spray, and the room was instantly transformed. The stale smell of sleepless nights was replaced with a fresh, calming aroma that made me almost forget that the sheets needed changing – and so did the baby.
P.S. The Feminist Breeder will be sharing her home birth via a live blogging event in April and she’ll also be popping in on Earth Mama’s Facebook page to discuss her tips for enjoying a zero toxin pregnancy!
