I have promised so many classes over the years that I would let you know about my favourite Aromatherapy book. I have relied on “The Fragrant Pharmacy” by Valerie Worwood which has an excellent chapter on Babies and Children. We had a workshop with an Aromatherapist when training with Peter Walker who was at pains to explain that it is important not to overload a baby’s senses with lots of fragrances, especially chemical ones, and interfere with the Mother/baby smells. A lovely tip I learnt recently is to sleep on your baby’s blanket during pregnancy, take it with you to hospital so that your baby can be wrapped up in your smell after birth – especially lovely if you have to be separated for any reason.
