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 attended the birth of a friend and first-time mom. When we arrived at her home, she was not handling her contractions well. She was laying on her stomach screaming with each wave.

I had brought the Gentle Baby oil blend mixed in coconut oil (5 drops of oil to 4 tbsp coconut oil) with me and began massaging it on her lower back. Her sounds quickly changed from screaming to deep, low moans.

I continued to rub her back with the oil mix throughout her labor. As her labor progressed, we then used the Gentle Baby for perineal support and massage.

She had a natural, vaginal, home delivery with no tearing.

For a first-time mom, she had a quick delivery with only a 2-hour pushing stage!
