Aromatherapy & Pregnancy

During pregnancy (particularly the first trimester) do not use the following Pure Essential Oils or blends containing these oils in topical applications: Basil, Cedarwood, Chamomile, Cinnamon Leaf, Clary Sage, Ginger, Jasmine, Marjoram, Peppermint, Rosemary or Wintergreen oils.

Pregnancy is a joyful phase in life when both ‘mum to be’ and ‘unborn baby’ need special care and pampering.

The body undergoes many physical changes which often cause symptoms such as headaches, nausea, sleeplessness and nervous tension. While there are many oils that offer welcome relief from such symptoms, we advise you to always check with a certified medical practitioner before beginning any treatments.
