Hi everyone!  I am expecting baby #3 on April 4th and have really been considering using essential oils to aid in relaxation. Personally i love the smell of vanilla but i do not know if it is a good one for labor.  Any thoughts?  What other oils have you used or would you suggest? 


I must admit during pregnancy i love the smell of laundry detergent lol.  My mom uses tide and i find the smell so relaxing but personally i prefer to use natural and organic detergents.  Do you know of any natural organic detergents that still leave the clothes smelling really nice... all the ones i have used do not leave a strong smell at all.


Thank you and happy birthing! smile.gif
