I’m now around 23 weeks pregnant, my bump is growing nicely and I am starting to feel achy with occasional sciatica. I was delighted when Zita West Online offered to send some products to pamper me. Zita West has helped thousands of couples to conceive with her holistic, integrated approach to fertility and pregnancy.
Zita West Beautiful Belly Balm
Its luxurious blend of natural plant oils has been specially formulated to help keep your skin as soft, supple and moisturised as possible whilst your baby grows, reducing the incidence of subcutaneous tears. The stimulation and exercise of the subcutaneous tissues (the tissues just beneath the skin) caused by the action of massaging is also of great value in itself. No product will get rid of stretch marks, no matter what the manufacturers say – they are predominantly inherited – but using our Beautiful Belly Balm will help. Women who have used it say the oils in the balm help with the tightness and itching that sometimes occurs during pregnancy too.
I love this balm, it massages in beautifully. the scent isn’t overpowering but relaxing and Lucas has been enjoying massaging it in too whilst he talks to his sister so it has become a lovely bonding exercise as well as leaving my belly soft and smooth.
Zita West Back Ease Massage Oil
Zita West Back Ease Massage Oil can be used throughout pregnancy and labour. A soothing massage with these wonderful oils will help to stimulate your circulation and ease away tensions. The lemon and lime oils used in the product are particularly uplifting and invigorating and will give you a boost as well.
This smells incredible and I am definitely going to be buying another bottle for when I am in labour. It leaves my skin silky soft and just creates such a lovely environment.
Zita West Uplifting Orange Clove and Cedarwood Candle
Whether you want to soothe an anxious mood or revive a lethargic spirit, this strong and spicy mix of orange clove and cedarwood, made with 100% natural wax and pure essential oils, will gently lift your spirits. Light it by the side of a warm bath of Restore & Renew Bath Oil to create an atmosphere of tender rejuvenation.
What better gift for yourself, or a friend, after the unique challenges and rewards of early motherhood?
Beautifully presented in a fitted cardboard box with a cardboard and ribbon lid.
When I choose candles, I don’t tend to go towards the cedarwood scents but this is such a fab combination. I really like the scent and if I do go for a home birth, will be having this lit during labour.
Zita West Preconditioning Perineal Massage Oil
A daily massage of the perineum with this gentle oil during the last six weeks of pregnancy will help to keep it supple and elastic, reducing the potential for perineal tears. The oil is Zita’s own unique blend of pure plant extracts, enriched with avocado and borage. Get to know this ‘hidden’ part of your body at around 32 weeks, as it needs to be in good condition for the delivery of your baby. Massage into the skin of the perineum using fingers and thumbs.
I haven’t used this yet but I have put a little on my hands to see what it feels and smells like, the scent is very subtly which I like and it has left my hands very well-conditioned.
