    Hi ladies, i was wondering if anyone has any experience of whether it works or not? I've just got some, it cost nearly £9 (on special as well!!) from Holland and Barratt so i'm hoping i might get a result from it. Even if it relaxes me and stops me bighting peoples heads off lol.

    Plug is gone, got loads of cramps so keen to get things moving now.

    Oh yeah, one more question.......what do i do with it lol I know i can put in me bath, but how many drops in a full bath do you reckon? and is there anything else i can do with it? Thanx xx

    I think you can rub it on the bump... if you have a bath with it you need a carrier oil

    Hi hun. I put a few drops in the bath (about 4 or 5 I think) the day that I lost my plug and I went in labour that night. Good luck x

    I have only read a few drops in the bath or massaged into bump using a carrier oil or you will have a reaction or rash to the "neat" oil.

    Good luck I hope your in full labour soon!

    ive been using it for the last 4 weeks and although it hasnt got baby moving yet its certinly relaxing! i put 5-10 drops in the bath and also i rub it in my bump mixed with some almond oil, During my last labour at a MLU they gave me lots of it on some cotton wool as its meant to strengthen contractions when you get them, good luck hun xxx

    Ive been using since week 34 i put 8 drops in the bath. It certainly helps me to relax and if you have been having trouble getting sleep it really helps to have a bath before bedtime. Im not sur eif it helps you to go into labour. I have been rubbing it on my bump too mixed with baby oil.. i love the stuff. It is expensive though £9.00 how big is the bottle? I know I paid £4.99 for a little 10ml bottle from a herbal shop. hope it works for you hun, let me know if it does and ill run a bath now lol xx

    It's 10ml think i was ripped off by holland and barratt lol.

    I've mixed 5 drops with 20ml of almond oil and rubbed it into my bump (twice lol) and i now have a bath running with 8 drops in it. I have had a few pains today but still not alot going on :hissy: Suppose baby won't come until he is good and ready but its worth a try innit xx

    i used it twice in the bath (5-6 drops) and once on my bump with carrier oil and was in labour the next night so it defo worked for me. i also bought mine from holland and barratt and was ripped off heard its cheaper elsewhere but nevermind it did the job!!
