Young Living Essential Oil uses for Labor:


  • Peppermint on the tongue, 1 drop at a time
  • Peppermint in water: I use this as a diluted sprizter which acts as an anti-nausea agent. Best during transition on a cloth for your face, forehead or chest. This can also be used to stimulate mom to pee if she’s having a hard time going by just simply dropping it into the toilet.
