I use and recommend doTERRA Essential Oils as they are 100% Pure, Ethically and Sustainably Sourced from the Indigenous Habitat Globally, tested for potency and purity, third party tested and are safe, natural, free of contaminants/synthetics/fillers and offer incredible therapeutic value. To read more about why I love these oils click here.
There are differing opinions regarding essential oil use and safety during pregnancy as well as nursing. It is common to find warnings everywhere about which oils one should and should not use during pregnancy. The most commonly expressed concern is over the topical and internal use of essential oils.
When using essential oils that are laden with impurities there is a legitimate threat posed to a developing fetus. However if the user has ensured they are only using pure, unadulterated essential oils (the reason I only use and recommend doTERRA because of their third party testing of EVERY batch and stringent testing methods), many of those concerns become unwarranted. It is recommended a pregnancy woman be under the care of a physician and/or midwife and consult with them prior to taking/using new products to take into account their individual circumstances.
WARNING! The only oil I would never, ever use during pregnancy, particularly in the first trimester but throughout pregnancy until such time as I am due/overdue is Clary Sage or blends such as Solace/Clary Calm which contain Clary Sage. It can bring on and support labor so save it for that time. The use of peppermint essential oil can limit milk production in some women so best avoided towards the very end of pregnancy and when you give birth and your milk is coming in. Unless you have a massive case of oversupply. Then it can be quite handy!!
Always dilute properly with a carrier oil when using topically, err on the side of caution and choose aromatic use where appropriate. Consult with a healthcare practitioner.
