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.

My daughter, Tiffany, made an "essential oil believer" out of her midwife during the recent birth of her daughter! After a long prodromal labor, her midwife gave me a call to update me on what was going on.

She said she felt things were going slow because the baby was posterior. She asked me to pray and told me they were trying various positions to get the baby to turn, but nothing was working so far. I asked her if she had tried any essential oils.

Though she didn't sound convinced, she seemed open to trying just about anything at this point. I told her I'd get right back with her, as I wanted to verify with a few other people which oil would work best.

I called her right back and asked her to rub a few drops of therapeutic grade Peppermint essential oil on her lower back (Tiffany already had her birth "stash" of oils ready).

Within minutes, the midwife felt with her own hands, the baby turning!

And within an hour, a healthy 8 lb. 4 oz baby girl was born into the world!

Praise God!
