Use of Essential Oils in Pregnancy

  No Map Available

There are differing opinions regarding the use of essential oils during pregnancy, labor and delivery.  AIA recommends that schools of aromatherapy include an educational component regarding the appropriate and safe uses of essential oils during pregnancy including patho-physiology, risks and benefits.  This will include, but is not limited to, emmenagogue and abortifacient essential oils.

Including a safety-based educational component relating to pregnancy will prepare the qualified aromatherapy practitioner to determine safe oils for each trimester, appropriate dilution and a variety of uses of essential oils to complement routine maternity care.  Aromatherapy practitioners will avoid using any essential oil when safety issues are uncertain.
