With our NEW Pregnancy Pilates class starting NEXT WEEK we are celebrating all things pregnancy related at OBUS!


Our OBUS Blends have been designed specifically for women by a woman, Christine Courtney, principal and owner of OBUS wellness school and centre.

Morning Sickness

Unfortunately, there is no cure for morning sickness but we do have some tips to help ease the symptoms.

  1. Drink – Ginger Tea, here in OBUS we love PUKKA’s ginger tea and it comes highly recommend from us to you for all types nausea.
  2. Food – of course you are not going to feel like eating when you have morning sickness but when it passes, try a ginger biscuit with your cup of tea. Again, Ginger is great for all types of nausea.
  3. Smell – pregnant women are very sensitive to smell and Christine recommends a lovey refreshing blend of essential oils using a combination of spearmint, peppermint and spearmint. These oils can be used in an aromatherapy inhaler together or individually.
