Can anyone recommend any massage oils that you used during labor?

Welcome to the group momma! I didnt have the time to use massage oils honestly.  Is this your first? if not how long was your last labor?  My first was so long I wish I had thought of this!

For my labor I used lavender before transition and then when pushing I had my doula use peppermint for energy.

Where if you don't mind me asking?
I'm 34 weeks with my 2nd and this labor is freaking me out more than my first. I had a horrible experience with my first so I think I'm slightly traumatized by it, to the point that I'm almost dreading it this time. So anything helps at this point

She used a bucket from the hospital and had water & oils in it.  Then soaked a wash cloth, rinsed it and put it on the back of my neck.  It was colder water, felt good.
