We often get asked which essential oils can be used responsibly during pregnancy. That is why we have selected a number of wellness products and essential oils that are good to use during pregnancy. Then use it even more sparingly than usual. So use only half the normal dose in a bath oil or massage oil.
We strongly advise against internal use of essential oil. First there is a selection of essential oils that cannot be used during pregnancy. After that is a selection of essential oils that can be used during low doses during pregnancy.
If you are sensitive to scents, you should not use essential oils at all during pregnancy.
If you are not sensitive to essential oils and fragrances, essential oils can also help you during pregnancy. Always use essential oils diluted in a base oil, bath oil, body lotion etc. or buy our ready-made wellness products that can be found in this category.
Please note: we have made this selection based on our range. If another supplier has more essential oils, first check whether the use of the other types of essential oils is also responsible. Preferably do not use essential oils until the twelfth week of pregnancy.

Use these essential oils in a bath or massage oil less than usual. So eg 2 drops instead of 4 drops, or 3 drops instead of 6 drops.
