I first discovered the therapeutic benefits of this aromatherapy blend when I gave birth to my son. Ever since, I have been able to help many women cope with pregnancy and delivery. The results have always been consistent – women have reported a general feeling of well-being and confidence. The aromatic oils infuse a sense of self-assurance and minimize the pain. The essential oils in this aromatherapy blend
are helpful because they:
- Relieve anxiety and fear
- Improve circulation and breathing
- Infuse a feeling of “I can do it!”
- Provide pain relief in a natural and safe way
- Help induce contractions
