A pregnant woman’s guide - essential oils by trimester

The decision to use essential oils during pregnancy can be a difficult one. There are a wide variety of opinions on the matter, often with conflicting and confusing claims.

For example, some women choose to avoid excessive use of these specific oils:

  • Clary Sage or Sage

  • Idaho Tansy or Hyssop

  • Fennel

  • Wintergreen

  • Blends and supplements that contain these oils

However, essential oil usage is a personal choice, and there are no hard-and-fast rules. Just be sure to follow label directions and consult a medical professional with essential oil experience to be as safe as possible. When used correctly, essential oils can help form a beautiful bond between motherhood and Mother Nature.
