Sense of smell during pregnancy
Your sense of smell changes during pregnancy; it has become more sensitive and it is not for nothing that it is said that a pregnant woman has a “sensitive nose”.
The body’s protective mechanism
It’s quite true that at the beginning of the pregnancy, women perceive smells differently from before the pregnancy. Why should this be? It is assumed that the change in the sensitivity to smells is quite an ancient phenomenum in that it protects the pregnant woman and her unborn baby. Because of this she will avoid any food that is ‘off’’. Cigarette smoke or the smell of coffee may also be perceived as unpleasant.
I like your smell
Humans have a deep affinity to natural scents and perfumes, because they enrich our perception of life.
In the course of our lives, we have various experiences with different fragrances which, consciously or unconsciously, help to remind us of things that have happened. The many different natural fragrances that Weleda uses may have an holistic effect on our senses. Only pure essential oils are used in our natural body care products. Together with the knowledge gained from aromatherapy, these fragrance compositions have a beneficial effect on body and mind.
