Essential Oils & Pregnancy

ESSENTIAL OILS & PREGNANCY



We use essential oils in a large portion of our products and as such we feel it important to inform our customers about the risks of the interaction between essential oils and pregnancies. While most of our products are made using a low concentration of essential oils, this is something we want our customers to be aware of so they can avoid use. If you have any questions or concerns, please consult your doctor.

While there are certainly more essential oils that one should take caution with during pregnancy, these are the ones that we are currently using in a selection of our products.
  • Black Pepper
  • Camphor
  • Cedarwood
  • Chamomile
  • Cinnamon Bark
  • Citronella
  • Clove Leaf
  • Cornmint
  • Eucalyptus
  • Lemon Grass
  • Marjoram
  • Rosemary
  • Sage
  • Spearmint

A few of the scents that are popular, are also listed as to be used with caution such as Rose, Jasmine, Vanilla & Myrrh – I use fragrance oils which do not have the same properties as essential oils and are thus not listed with our Use With Caution products.
