Salt Me! Prenatal Nasal Inhaler
The new Salt Me! PRENATAL Himalayan Sea Salt Inhaler is finally here!!
I am excited to introduce this new doctor-approved nasal inhaler that is specially-formulated for pregnant women and nursing mothers. Therapeutic essential oils infused into Himalayan Sea Salt were selected for their natural properties and safety for mommas to use.
During pregnancy, it can become harder to breathe through the nose. Pregnancy rhinitis is a real thing. It is when a pregnant woman has nasal congestion from inflammation with or without runny nose for at least 6 weeks during pregnancy. The cause is not exactly known but it is thought to be due to pregnancy hormones and an increase in the body’s blood volume as pregnancy advances. The mucous membranes in the nose become swollen causing congestion and some expectant mothers experience a drippy nose and sneezing. What’s interesting is that these symptoms can happen even if the momma doesn’t normally have allergies or sinus problems. However, symptoms can be even worse if the mother had issues before pregnancy. A stuffy nose can occur anytime during pregnancy but tends to be worse in the third trimester. Breathing difficulties can last for several weeks after delivery extending into the time that a mother would be breast feeding.
Tips to improve breathing during pregnancy:
- Stay Hydrated/Drink Plenty of Water
- Sleep with Head Elevated
- Bedside humidifier
- Inhale Steam
- Use Nasal Saline Mist or Flushes
- Use Essential Oils (pregnancy safe)
Stress of pregnancy occurs for various reasons including uncomfortable physical changes, fears about delivery, family issues, work concerns, big life changes, financial constraints, COVID-19 and everything else in between. And, let’s not forget how those raging hormones can take it to another level. It has been proven that maternal stress can negatively affect the developing baby causing premature birth and low birth weight.
Tips to coping with stress and anxiety during pregnancy:
- Talk About It/Share Your Thoughts
- Write About It/Journaling
- Positive Affirmation
- Listen to Music
- Engage the Body with Physical Activity (walking, yoga, stretching)
- Get Plenty of Rest
- Massage Therapy
- Deep Breathing
The Salt Me! Prenatal Inhaler is an effective, non-medicated way to help both pregnancy rhinitis and anxiety. It is a compact pick me up that can be carried wherever momma and baby go. The essential oils are refreshing and have a pleasing scent that will give an instant boost to mood and make breathing feel clear.
