My Favorite Essential Oils for Labor and Delivery

I discovered the benefits of essential oils during my sixth pregnancy. I love the health and wellness benefits that I have experienced using essential oils during my pregnancy, labor, and beyond. When you pack your bag for labor and delivery, be sure to include some of these wonderful essential oils. You can start enjoying the benefits of using these oils during your pregnancy EXCEPT Clary Sage. Use Clary Sage only AFTER labor has started. enJOY!
