Essential Oils:

- Peppermint Essential Oil- You can smell peppermint essential oil to ease nausea during labor. This oil is also incredibly helpful to use if you have back labor. Just massage on your lower back diluted.

- Lavender Essential Oil- Lavender is a very versatile essential oil you can use all throughout your labor to promote relaxation and ease muscle tension

- Frankincense Essential Oil- Use it to calm your emotions by inhaling the aroma

- Clary Sage Essential Oil- It encourages more effective contractions. You can also try this as a natural way to encourage labor.

- Myrrh Essential Oil- Inhaling the aroma of myrrh can also encourage the progression of natural labor.

- Rose Essential Oil- Rose essential oil for labor is relaxing and helps soften ligaments. I really like this smell (even if used in the cheaper Rose Water, Because it reminds women of the smell of romance)

- Jasmine Essential Oil- Jasmine evokes feelings of joy, peace, and self-confidence

- Helichrysum Essential Oil- Helichrysum essential oil is great to use on your perineum during delivery to increase skin elasticity. You can just use a small amount of helichrysum with a carrier oil and rub it on. This is great to use in combination with a ginger compress on your perineum.

- Black Pepper - a MUST have in case of back labor.

- Ylang Ylang - Can help advance labor
