Essential Oils & Pregnancy – An Alternative to OTC Medications & Prescriptive Drugs “Essential oils have been used safely for hundreds of years by thousands of pregnant women in the form of perfumes, bath essences, and scented soap.” --- Jane Buckle, RN, PhD – Clinical Aromatherapy – Essential Oils in Practice, 2003 “Aromatherapy is nurturing and comforting, and promotes a sense of happy well-being in pregnant women; it can also help ease some of the discomforts of pregnancy. One of the interesting links between aromatherapy and pregnancy is that pregnant women have a heightened sense of smell. This needs to be taken into consideration when choosing which essential oils to use …” ---Gill Farrer-Halls – The Aromatherapy Bible, 2005
How Can You Naturally Approach Pregnancy, Labor & Post-Partum Care? With Pure, Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils

Aromatic Diffusion Purify rooms or change emotion Diffuser Drop in hands Drop on tissue Spray on a surface or nearby Just open/smell from bottle Topical Application Apply directly to skin or in a carrier oil Internal Use In a capsule, under the tongue, in water or honey 3 Simple and Safe Models for Use Very safe and gentle Keep out of eyes, ears, and nose Dilute with oil, not water Check for skin sensitivity with first time use
Recommended Oils Application Great, natural way to bond with your child throughout their life! All oils require repeat application every 3-4 hours Always store oils safely – on high shelves! Infants – highly diluted – Best choices: diffuser, on feet diluted – OK to apply to torso if highly diluted Toddlers + Young Children – Under 6 = ¼ normal dosage – Under 12 = ½ normal dosage – Best choices depend on area of concern: Diffuse, apply to feet, dilute and apply externally Ok for internal use in water or capsule if they can swallow it Ears – drops onto cotton ball – wipe around outside of ear. Cotton ball in ear. Teenagers + College age – same as adult dosage and application
Essential Oil Safety Very safe and gentle with few side effects Keep out of eyes, ears, and nose Dilute with Fractionated coconut oil, not water Skin sensitivity primary safety issue Follow all label directions
Know the Quality of Your Source! Seek counsel from experienced oil users Why do some oils say “external use only” and “keep away from children”?? When in doubt…use topical Lavender only – Avoid inexpensive “aromatherapy” oils – Source for highest quality available Remember, LESS IS MORE for effect Don’t expect your doctor to know!
