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 regularly use acupuncture to induce labour when the baby is overdue and I have a success rate of around 70% . I recently treated a client who came in for 3 induction treatments over 4 days.

Chemical induction was booked for 5 days time and my client was very reluctant to have that procedure. The day of the third acupuncture treatment she had seen her obstetrician that morning, and though her cervix was soft, there was no sign that the baby was ready to move.

With the client's permission, while the needles were in I massaged her feet with 3 drops of the SclarEssence oil blend. After massaging her feet she felt a sensation which she thought may have been the start of a contraction. On standing up at the end of the treatment she definitely had another contraction.

We crossed our fingers and the next day I was so happy to receive an email letting me know that she had delivered a healthy baby girl at 8:45pm the previous night, only 6 hours after her treatment! What a wonderful result!

Next time I'll be using the SclarEssence immediately as I'm certain it assisted the efficacy of the acupuncture and my client's own process.
