Buyer beware.

The night before I actually went to the hospital for the birth of my son, I began to have painful contractions that cause me to stay up all night long. The pain was unbearable through each contraction and since it was my first child I wasn't quite sure if it was contractions I was experiencing.

So to help sooth the pain before going to the hospital I took a very warm bath with about 10-15 Lavender drops and also rubbed Lavender on my tummy. While in the bath soaking, my contractions completely diminished, well the pain diminished, not sure if I was still having the contraction because I no longer felt any of the sharp pains.

Lavender also help the redness from stretch marks appearing. I put Lavender on area where it appeared that stretch marks were developing and they diminished.
