Essential Oil Treatments for Labor Pains

Labor pains are the pains experienced by pregnant women during the uterine contractions that signal the beginning of childbirth. Essential oils used to alleviate labor pains include sage and raspberry leaf, which has a long history of use throughout pregnancy and during labor, to prevent haemorrhaging and assist with contractions.

Aromatherapy using essential oils can also help ease labor pains by helping the mother to relax and ease muscle tension; lavender and frankincense oils are both excellent for this. Studies have suggested that women who use aromatherapy during childbirth report less labor pains overall, and also require less pain medication.

Application Usages

Massage Oils Application

Select 20-30 drops of your preferred essential oils for labor pains and mix with 2 ounces of a carrier oil (grapeseed oil is a good option). You can apply the mixture on the feet, temples, or lower back.

Diffusion Application

Select 8-10 drops of your preferred essential oils for labor pains and pour into diffuser. Take deep breaths and inhale the essential oil aroma.
