How I stopped Premature Labor When I was pregnant with my son Daniel, I was told that flying in my last trimester would be safe. Due to the cabin pressure, before we landed I began having contractions. I prayed and the words lavender came to my mind. I called a friend and she brought me Young Living lavender oil which I immediately started applying to my abdomen. I continued the application of a few drops of lavender oil every 20 minutes until the contractions completely stopped, allowing me to carry Daniel full term. Teri Secrest, Prescott, AZ
More Pregnancy Testimonials Besides myself and my amazing husband, peppermint was my very dear and loyal friend during pregnancy. I had ALL the symptoms that any book can describe: morning sickness, headaches, dizziness, very sensitive to smells, lack of energy, weird stomach and so on. I have to tell you, if you are pregnant or you know someone who is blessed by this process, do yourself/herself a favor and get a bottle or even two bottles of Peppermint right away! It helped me with everything, even when the day was hot, I would rub it at the soles of my feet and aahhhhh I was completely refreshed. I was able to forget whatever at home, but never my Peppermint oil. Many Blessings, Fe Bailey ~ San Francisco, CA I used essential oils during my labors and both my children were born naturally at home. I inhaled Peace and Calming and Gentle Baby (not mixed) to ease me when my contractions got tough and refocus me on my breathing. I also used Gentle Baby topically on my belly while I was pregnant to prevent stretch marks along with coca butter. The peppermint I used during pregnancy and during labor by inhalation to ease nausea and increase oxygen intake. I also used a drop of peppermint in my tea to soothe digestion when needed. A drop of lemon in water was useful for soothing heartburn during my pregnancy. Scarlet Paolicchi ~ Nashville, TN

Effect of Aromatherapy Massage on Abdominal Fat and Body Image in Post-menopausal Women Department of Nursing, Wonkwang Health Science College Kim, Hee-Ja Korea Purpose: The purpose of this study was to verify the effect of aromatherapy massage on abdominal fat and body image in post-menopausal women. All subjects received one hour of whole body massage as treatment by the same researcher every week for 6 weeks. Participants also massaged their own abdomen two times everyday for 5 days each week for 6 weeks. The two groups used different kinds of oil. The experimental group used 3% grapefruit oil, cypress and three other kinds of oil. The control group used grape seed oil. Result: Abdominal subcutaneous fat and waist circumference in the experimental group significantly decreased after aromatherapy massage compared to the control group. Body image in the experimental group was significantly better after aromatherapy massage than in the control group. Conclusion: These results suggest that Aromatherapy massage could be utilized as an effective intervention to reduce abdominal subcutaneous fat, waist circumference, and to improve body image in post-menopausal women.
