The natural products Duchess Meghan’s snapping up ahead of giving birth

It’s thought that some sneaky photos of the expectant royals reveal a little more about their birth plans.



Casual Meg

Meg and Harry were just captured by photographers paying an off duty visit to Ilapothecary, apparently stocking up on natural products ahead of their first baby’s birth later this month.

Not only did everyone note how normal the pair looked, but royal fans quickly began wondering which products the couple snapped up.

The Ilapothecary says their range is “infused with powerful natural ingredients, including British grown herbs with a long history of healing, such as Borage and Thyme, and medicinal flowers such as Rose Geranium.”

“Age-old solutions are mixed to phenomenal effect with vitamins, stem cells, and – most revolutionary of all – incredibly precious homoeopathic filaments. These are distilled, sometimes for years, from powerful gemstones such as amethyst and granite, and even pearls.”

Goodness me! #Magical

Products with a purpose

We had a poke about their website and think maybe the following could be on Meghan and Harry’s shopping list. 

SOS Body Balm – Contains shea which is useful for tackling all kinds of skin irritations from scars and stretch marks during pregnancy to windburn and muscle fatigue. It’s moisturising and hydrating, making skin feel smoother but it acts under the surface too, helping with tissue cell regeneration and Boosting collagen production. Anti-inflammatory properties make it good for preventing a baby’s nappy rash.

Dream Space Diffuser Oil and Magnesium & Amethyst Deep Relax Bath Soak – Both contain vetiver which its makers say restores and relaxes, centres the body’s energy and helps to relieve anxiety. 

“This versatile essential oil is also nourishing and moisturising for the skin … and can be used to treat stretch marks during pregnancy.”

Or maybe Transform Space Diffuser Oil which contains geranium which apparently “resonates with the womb and is ideal for hormone imbalances and milestone transitions (post-pregnancy, menopause, tricky teenage years).”

What we DO know is that this beauty and wellbeing business can expect an upturn in business, thanks to the Meg Effect!
