'ili - HĀNAU Pregnancy Body Oil

HĀNAU: “hah-now”; To give birth, to bring forth as a mother

A regenerative blend of carefully selected organic oils with native Australian Lemon Myrtle, to nourish & nurture the mother’s body naturally during the sacred journey from pregnancy into motherhood.

Hānau will help restore and rejuvenate dry, stretched and depleted skin, whilst promoting elasticity and hydration in the areas that need it most.

This alchemy of dynamic oils contains high concentrations of vitamins, essential fatty acids and antioxidants to increase the nutrient content of cells.

With Native Australian Lemon Myrtle and Lavender to uplift and promote a sense of calm, and earthy Patchouli to ground and stabilise.

This luxurious blend promotes presence and awareness in the physical and emotional body; nurturing the body of the mother as she gives life to another.

“In the ancient Hawaiian tradition, the function of birth was the “transference of Spirit and Soul from one dimension to the next via the womb.” The practice of ho’ohanau (midwifery) had been researched and evolved for thousands of years so that “all experiences connected to the creation of life would not only be as efficient and painless as possible, but ethereal as well’.”
