I've finished my DONA training, and now I'm getting together my doula bag and getting ready to start taking on some clients for my certification!!!<br><br>
I've heard suggestions for the following oils, but I can't afford to get them all at once. Which few do you recommend as the most used or best to get first? Any others oils? Thanks!<br><br>
Gentle Baby blend by Young Living<br>
Jasmine<br>
French Lavender<br>
Lemon<br>
Clary Sage<br>
Vanilla<br>
Peppermint<br>
Tangerine<br>
Rose<br>
Bergamot<br>
Ginger<br>
Rosemary<br>
Ylang-Ylang

Those are all really good ones and I have them all. There isn't one that is better then the other. I actually bought a blended mix for my birth bag that are made by a freind of mine. She did a bag that is<br><br>
Early labor<br>
Active labor<br>
2nd stage<br>
peri compresses<br>
bath<br>
postpartum<br>
and one other that I can't think of<br><br>
Plus I have some lavender and rose and clary sage and aveda<br><br>
Lavendar is a must. I hate it, but most people love it. The mixes have all of the essetial oils that you listed in them, including naroli. Good luck!

I like the following for birth:<br><br>
Lavender - soothing, relaxing, clearing<br><br>
Clary sage - nice in a massage oil (good for belly massages!)<br><br>
Lemon oil - wonderful for a pick-me-up or to ease nausea<br><br><br><br>
I don't use many - and usually suggest that people get their own so they are familiar with the scents ahead of time. Some essential oil smells are hard to get rid of if the mom hates it!

I carry lavendar and clary sage and pepperment,<br>
a whiff of the peppermint can be helpful if mom is having trouble peeing.
