Has anyone used aromatherapy in previous labors, or is planning on using it this time? If so, what, and how? :)
Distraction is not the same thing as play.

My midwife used cool wash clothes in lavender water when my blood pressure got high due to stressful nurse and to help keep my focused during pushing.
I also sucked on a lavender preggy pop to relax for awhile and a peppermint one when I needed energy.
I thought it really helped.
I used them for my labor. I had several, but only wanted to use Rose once the contraction got intense. I mixed it with a carrier oil and rubbed it on my wrists. During the contractions I would take a deep inhale. I think it really helped me focus on my breathing.
