For those of us who are holistic-minded and health- conscious, oils are a great option for aiding us through labor and delivery. For those of us who have experienced L&D before, I'm 99.9% sure you will try almost anything to feel even a smidge more relief- again, oils are a great option. I work with essential oils from Wisdom of the Earth (WOTE); this is a medicinal grade oil unlike many of the "therapeutic" brands you see floating around the internet. Here are my recommendations for WOTE oils:
Anise Raven: “Facilitates harmonizing females in labor, delivery, and lactation”
Clary Sage: “Aids pregnancy, labor, birthing, lactation”
Amyris: Deep Relaxation
Lotus: Sedative and high calming
Buddha Wood, Wild Tansy: Meditation
Sweet Birch: Endurance and Strength
Elemi, Kanuka, Lavender/Lavandin, Peppermint, Rosemary: Pain Relief
Vanilla, Lavender/Lavandin: Calming
Fir/Lavender Family: Comfort
Lotus, Neroli: Sacral Chakra
Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions regarding my recommendations above. Prices can be found here. I'm looking forward to trying some of these myself- I'll be sure to report my findings ;-)
