Discover Gravida Our Signature Scent

A favourite part of our amazing formulas for most mamas (and for us!) is our incredible signature Gravida scent. Gravida means pregnancy in Latin and is a very special element of our mama mio range. It is a unique blend of ten pregnancy-specific essential oils that all combine to create a fragrance which  not only smells wonderful but offers emotional and physical benefits to keep you looking and feeling your best.

Every single one of the oils that make up our signature Gravida scent has been chosen for its safety and its specific benefits for you throughout pregnancy . It is a beautiful fresh citrus blend with a gentle heart of white flowers  which is designed to appeal to even the most morning sick mamas. It somehow smells just perfect and we know mamas-to-be love it just as much as we do.
