Pregnancy & Essential Oils
Our team often get asked about essential oils and pregnancy. dōTERRA do have information on safe uses of essential oils during pregnancy, but here are my thoughts.
If in doubt, don’t use essential oils or just use Frankincense as it’s so supportive for everything.
I generally tell people to go with their thoughts but this is what I suggest:
- Diffuse (and don’t be heavy handed with the oils) as your more sensitive to smells.
- Topical use only with safe dilution methods with essential oils that are safe to use during pregnancy. There are so many essential oils and blends you can use as options for the short period whilst your pregnant.
- I opt on the side of caution, and never suggest to anyone that is pregnant to ingest any essential oils.
- Let’s not forgot, of course, seek advice from your healthcare professional.
