Pregnancy

Certified Pure, Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils are safe for the entire family!

“You will find warnings everywhere about which oils you should and should not use during pregnancy. These previously were very valid concerns because of the impurities that were so prevalent in the oils available and the threat that they posed to a developing fetus. But now that we enjoy the purity of oils…… it is no longer an issue” … Dr Hill

Essential oils for pregnancy birth and babies

I highly recommend Essential Oils for Pregnancy, Birth & Babies by Stephanie Fritz.

“You may see mixed information out there in different books about oils safe to use in pregnancy.  Please understand these books were written with all oil users in mind.  They will be ultra conservative because their readers may not necessarily be d..o..T users.
 
The information I share both here and in my book comes from personal experience in my midwifery practice as well as MANY conversations with essential oil experts in d..o..T.
I always say to follow your own intuition. You are the one who was given stewardship over your body, and everyBODY is different, so do what you feel comfortable with. ~Stephanie Fritz~
