I am 34 weeks pregnant, and I have the devil in my throat... constantly. I have been eating so many antacids and gummies that I think they are candy now.
I didn't want to eat them anymore and didn't know what to do. So I researched and voila! I found a way to address my heartburn.
I used one drop of Lemon essential oil under my tongue. And I used 1 to 2 drops of Peppermint essential oil in the palm of my hand, rubbing it on my chest.
Believe it or not, this took care of my darn heartburn... instantly. Now I don't eat anything chalky, and I just go to my Lemon and Peppermint essential oils if I need some relief.
I have had a very easy pregnancy due to these oils! Pinterest, as well as my own studying, has helped. I would love to share my experiences with essential oils and how they create relief with some pregnancy woes. Feel free to ask me any questions.

Because of its gastric acid neutralizing effect and its support of normal peristalsis, it has also been used for relief of heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). D-limonene has well-established chemopreventive activity against many types of cancer. Evidence from a phase I clinical trial demonstrated a partial response in a patient with breast cancer and stable disease for more than six months in three patients with colorectal cancer."||Link|
