Benefits of Essential Oils

A relaxed stress-free mother, support team and environment can make all the difference for a positive birth experience, including a shorter, more comfortable labour for the mother. Diffusing essential oils is an indirect, subtle environment enhancer, which can quickly decrease unpleasant emotional experiences, resulting in relaxed muscles, slower breathing and vital signs improvement.

Lemon – Offers clarity and concentration. Eases fear, calms anxiety and strengthens resolve. Decreases nausea. Physically refreshing and emotionally uplifting during a long labour.

Peppermint – Provides focus and improves concentration. Decreases nausea and eases headache and back pain. Energises and relieves mental fatigue, which is refreshing during a long labour.

Lavender – Reduces fear and anxiety and neutralises sensory overload. When absorbed through breathing it can decrease cortisol secretion and increase serotonin, providing a calm, strong nervous system.

Frankincense – Centring and grounding oil that slows and calms anxiety, panic and hysteria in labour. Revitalises both mind and body from mental and physical exhaustion. Eases labour pain.

Geranium – Uplifting effect, frees the mind of negative thoughts. Simultaneously calms and energises through its balancing actions, therefore supporting a more relaxed labour. Diffusion of this beautiful oil decreases pain in early labour and is excellent for exhaustion. Geranium freshens the room and uplifts the labouring mother and her support team.     


Diligent research has been conducted whilst curating the LABOUR – BIRTHING BLEND to ensure safety to the birthing mother. The essential oils that have been selected for both the diffuser and massage blend are on the list of clinically evidence-based essential oils for labour and delivery and are approved by the National Association For Holistic Aromatherapy. Dilutions have been kept to 1-2%, as the body always remains in control with low doses of essential oils and with the sense of smell heightened in pregnancy, it is important not to overwhelm the labouring woman. 


Add 4-5 drops to water in your diffuser.  Our collection of our Ultrasonic Aroma Diffusers are available HERE 

The diffusion of essential oils should be stopped close to birth to provide a more aromatically neutral environment as babies are very sensitive to smells.


Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes and sensitive areas. Do not ingest. Store below 30 ̊ C 

** Do not use essential oils in a birthing pool – after delivery, a baby surfaces with their eyes open and therefore essential oils could be irritant.



Information contained on Balanced By The Sea website is not medical advice and has not been evaluated by the Therapeutics Goods Administration (TGA). Whilst essential oils are natural and low-tox products, they are concentrated, therapeutic agents and can cause reactions in sensitive people. Please seek medical advice prior to using essential oils if you are taking any medications, have any underlying medical conditions or have any concerns.

Safety & Precautions

For sensitive skin or pregnant and breastfeeding women, please check the ingredients in our essential oil blends carefully, they may not be suited to your skin or use.

In general, essential oils are considered safe, with minimum adverse reactions. In some cases, they can cause minor skin irritation at the site of use. If this occurs, cease application immediately. 

Citrus oils, in particular, can cause phototoxicity (sensitivity to the sun) and topical application should be avoided 12-18 hours prior to sun exposure. 

Correct storage of essential oils away from direct sunlight and heat is important, as contact sensitisation is more likely to occur due to oxidation if they are left in these conditions. Essential oils can change their chemical composition over time, so it is important not to store them for long periods. 

Not all essential oils are safe to use in pregnancy and during breastfeeding. Please see the list below for essential oils not recommended for use during this time that are present in Balanced By The Sea blends.

Ingredients to avoid:


Black Pepper



Clary Sage (safe in labour + breastfeeding)



Jasmine (safe in labour + breastfeeding)

Juniper Berry






Ylang Ylang
