I love essential oils and it was great to read all the different uses for them during pregnancy 🙂 Brenna May 11, 2011 at 3:47 pm This post is great. I love the smell of essential oils, I’ll be using the headache recipe above for sure. Par Gardiner February 25, 2013 at 12:07 pm Nice to have such a simple break down of the oils and their uses. I’ve only just gotten interested in aromatherapy since being pregnant and have found it to be very helpful and relaxing 🙂 Lexi Thome November 2, 2013 at 12:44 am I have been using a facial cleansing oil on my face that contains Clary sage. I made myself so I know the recipe. The bottle is a 3oz bottle. There are 15 drops of Clary sage essential oil in it. And the rest is a variety of carrier oils such as argan, olive and castor. Is there any harm continuing to use the oil of I may be pregnant? If I am pregnant, I am newly pregnant. I just want to ensure safe use. From what I see online it’s not a recommended oil to ingest or undiluted typically, so obviously I’ll try to stay away from that. But what do you think of my current typical oil? miranda December 7, 2013 at 10:54 am What oils are no nos for use during pregnancy. Dionna codenamemama December 8, 2013 at 7:59 am I’m not an expert and cannot give you a definitive answer. I’d recommend researching and making a decision you feel comfortable with. That being said, here are a couple of articles I found after a quick Google search: http://www.essentialoils.co.za/pregnancy.htm http://modernalternativepregnancy.com/2013/02/16/what-essential-oils-should-i-avoid-in-pregnancy-and-weekend-links/# Melissa February 4, 2015 at 2:33 am I LOVE essential oils for healthcare! In fact,I stayed home sick from work today and I made me a capsule with a couple of oils in it and his nausea/vomiting ceased very quickly. I also went to the doctor this morning for a follow up on labs and am now able to stop taking my cholesterol medication thanks to the essential oil regimen I have been on. I personally use peppermint essential oils and love them due to the high quality and their potent special blends. Thank you so much for covering this topic! I love when people find out that there is an alternative to tradition medicine. Donelle August 17, 2015 at 10:48 am Are there any essential oils that would aid in conception?
