"Every woman should have these oils packed in her hospital bag!" -Sara, L&D RN
Described below are the 4 individual oils:
#1 Riding the Waves...is a blend for early/latent labor. It uses the gentle scents of lavender, rose & sandalwood to calm, relax & encourage rest when labor is just beginning.
Directions - massage shoulders, neck, forehead and/or temples, or add to bath
#2 Doing the Work...is used during active labor when contractions strengthen and become more frequent. This blend contains essentials oils like clary sage,lavender, neroli & cardamom to help support contractions and relieve pain while keeping you focused.
(additional oil: ylang ylang, sandalwood, patchouli, &orange)
Directions: massage lower back & hips during contractions, shoulders & neck in between contractions or apply oil to cloth & inhale.
#3 Keeping the Faith...was created for transition when anxiety and fear can rise and courage can falter. Essential oils like frankincense and sandalwood promote self-confidence, while marjoram aids tired aching muscles
(additional oil: orange, cypress, cardamom,palmarosa & lavender).
Directions -massage low back & hips during contractions, apply to cloth for inhalation during bouts of nausea or rub on shoulders, neck or temples where scent can be taken in.
#4 Pushing Through...is for the final stage of labor when you need to restore energy for delivery. The essential oils of peppermint & rosemary will see you through while the effects of vetiver will keep tension away.
Directions: apply oil to cloth and breathe deeply in between pushes. Rub on shoulders and neck for scent to energize or use on a cool forehead compress. (great for birth attendants too!)
~~~For patients who are having Cesarean Births, use Riding the Waves during a gentle shoulder, feet or hand massage to relax the mother before transport to delivery room. After birth, anesthesia can cause nausea, use Keeping the Faith on a cool cloth and apply to forehead or behind neck.
“...she told me she couldn’t do it. I reached for the last oil in the pack and rubbed it on her shoulders. The mother inhaled and was immediately transformed. Energy and strength exuded from her and her baby was born just a few pushes later.”
