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.

Being eight months pregnant, I have been suffering from external hemorrhoid swelling, making it difficult and uncomfortable to wipe. This has been going on for over a month; so after I applied some essential oils and woke up to no swelling the next morning, you can imagine how happy I was!

I mixed a little bit of coconut oil with Lavender essential oil and Gentle Baby oil blend and applied this after every bowel movement. If you don't have Gentle Baby, I think the Lavender would still do the trick. I have been reading other testimonials on, and that seems to be the most used oil for hemorrhoids.

I did notice the swelling would come back if I didn't use the oils for a few days. So consistency is the key I think, and hopefully it will go away altogether after I have the baby.
