..soothing labor?

I would loooove to know if you had any tricks to soothe yourself during labor, Mamas.. like music, water, essential oils, dimmed lights, cool atmosphere, etc.. I plan on using some essential oils that super relax me and can help with pain.. our hospital also will let us control the temperate in our l&d suite.. as well as the lighting.. and since I get anxious very easily in some situations, I am so stoked about this - is that weird?

What helped YOU!?
