Interesting little tid-bit that popped up in my google searches the other day that I thought you might like. Well at least our aromatically inclined holistic types. 🙂

Aromatherapy to ease labour pains

Friday 21st May 2010

Women in labour are being offered relaxation and massage with essential oils as a natural pain-relief technique by midwives trained in aromatherapy at North Bristol NHS Trust.

The techniques help ease labour pains, sickness, muscle aches and anxiety, and are being offered by a group of 24 midwives at Bristol’s Southmead Hospital’s birth suite, as well as to those who choose home births.

Midwives have been taught how to mix oils and use their properties to relieve symptoms. Bergamot, clary sage, jasmine, lavender, peppermint, frankincense and grapefruit are the seven basic oils the midwives use, which are then mixed to a base oil.

Up to three oils can be included in a mixture as appropriate to relieve the symptoms and can be applied through a drop on the hand, a compress to the skin, in a foot bath or by infusion through inhalation.
