I've long been a believer in aromatherapy and homeopathy and while I've heard a good deal about homeopathic remedies I rarely hear of those who use aromatherapy. So when a friend of mine told me that she used lavender in the water at her homebirth I was curious and found out that lavender stimulates contractions while relaxing the mother. I thought that maybe some of you ladies here would be interested in reading some of the things that I've found recently so I thought I would post this site for a starting point!

I used lavendar in my birth :)

Also - its strange - i hate the smell of lavendar (long story), but for some reason I didnt mind it at all during my birth. I think the fact it was heated up in a rice sock made a difference. smelled like steamed lavendar lol.
