Hi, am hoping to have a homebirth, or at least labour at home. Have read loads about essential oils and am thinking about getting an oil burner, but have no idea what type or where from. Any ideas? Thank you.

I think neal's yard have some nice ones. Don't forget you can put essential oils on a bit of tissue or in some boiling water too if you don't manage to buy a burner.

Thanks Reiziken, depending on expense I may go with your ideas!

Or of course massage them into your bump (if it is to stimulate contractions for example)

Just one thing: will you have gas and air at the homebirth? Mixing Entonox and open flames may not end happily.
