Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


I used essential oils during my labors and both my children were born naturally at home.

I inhaled the Peace & Calming and Gentle Baby blend (not mixed) to ease me when my contractions got tough and refocus me on my breathing.

I also used Gentle Baby topically on my belly while I was pregnant to prevent stretch marks along with coca butter.

I used Peppermint during pregnancy and during labor by inhalation to ease nausea and increase oxygen intake.

I also used a drop of Peppermint in my tea to soothe digestion when needed.

A drop of Lemon in water was useful for soothing heartburn during my pregnancy.
