Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I was attending a VBAC hopeful mom in the summer of 2012. She was having lots of anxiety due to prodromal labor. I helped her calm herself with Young Living's Peace & Calming essential oil blend.

She had just about thrown in the towel around 48 hours later and was ready to go in for a repeat c-section. I applied Young Living's PanAway oil across her lower back, she climbed up into bed and slept a few hours. I left the bottle with her and throughout the night, she would apply it again when overwhelmed by back pain.

When morning came, she entered active labor and a few short hours later beautifully birthed her baby in triumph in her own living room, under her own power.
