Is it safe to use essential oils during a pregnancy?

A great benefit of essential oils is that they are safe and effective throughout every phase of life, including pregnancy. Due to the mild, non-irritating nature of many essential oils, they can be used confidently during this time. An important consideration throughout pregnancy is supporting healthy function of the entire body. Frankincense supports healthy cellular function* and, in turn, improves overall health. I have found Ginger, Peppermint, Lavender, and citrus oils can aid in the relief of pregnancy-related issues such as occasional nausea* and other common discomforts. It’s also important to remember that during pregnancy many women are especially sensitive. Adapting quantity, application methods, or dilution ratios may be necessary to accommodate these heightened sensitivities.
