27 Jul Belly Button Remedies
Let’s talk about our navels, yes, our belly buttons! Firstly, let us tell you that is it totally normal for your belly button to change during pregnancy, usually around the end of your second trimester.
Your rapidly expanding uterus pushes your abdomen forward, making even the most inverted “innie” belly button become an “outie”! Your belly button will get right back to normal and into its regular position a few months after delivery. It may look a little stretched out, but wear it as your badge of honor – because our belly buttons are cooler than you think!
Did you know that after conception the first part of the baby created is the navel, which joins the mother’s placenta through the umbilical cord. All our veins are connected to our navel, which makes it the focal point of our body.
There is something called the “Pechoti” and it sits behind the navel. It contains more than 72,000 veins. The total amount of blood vessels we have in our bodies is equal to double the circumference of the earth – crazy right?
We understand that taking medication while pregnant can be a risk. There has been some talk that putting oil in and around your belly button can aid in home remedies which is why we wanted to share them with you:
- Applying oil in the navel heals the dryness of the eyes, poor view, the pancreas, the heels, and chapped lips, keeps the face bright, the hair healthier, for knee pain, the chills, lethargy, pain in the joints and dry skin.
- Apply Neem Oil in your belly button to get rid of stubborn pimples and acne.
- Apply Almond Oil in your belly button to help achieve a glowing face.
- Apply Mustard Oil in your belly button to get rid of dry, chapped lips. Will also keep your intestines moving to remove harmful bacteria but keep the good.
- Apply Olive Oil or Coconut Oil to improve your fertility.
- Sesame Oil is used for all types of joint pains. It is also known to strengthen bones.
- Use an equal amount of Mustard Oil and Ginger Oil for upset stomach, bloating, nausea and digestive problems.
- Using warm Ghee improves blood flow to the nervous system and also enhances the immunity system. It cures constipation and builds a strong digestive system. It gives relief from joint pain.
- Thyme oil is anti-spasmodic, it helps relax your arteries and veins, lowering blood pressure and stress to your heart.
- Thyme Oil is an expectorant, which means it can help remove mucus from your airways and lungs. Thyme Oil is approved by Germany’s Commission E in the treatment of bronchitis, whooping cough, and upper respiratory inflammation. Remember Thyme Oil is a powerful compound and should not be used directly on your skin, as this can cause sensitization and irritation. It must first be diluted with a carrier oil (like olive oil, coconut oil, or almond oil)
- At night before bed, put 3 drops of Castor Oil in your navel and spread it 1 and a half inches around your navel, this helps with knee pain.
You can keep a small drip jar with the oil required next to your bed and place a few drops in your navel before going to sleep.
So whether you’re an ‘outie’ or an ‘innie’, your belly button is incredible!
If you have tried one of these remedies or know if any others, we would love to know!
