(this is a guide)
As with all holistic treatments there are some things that are avoided during certain stages of pregnancy, some that are contraindicated, and some that are safe throughout the entire pregnancy. The same is true for aromatherapy oils.
Below is a list of oils that are safe to use during your entire pregnancy, some after certain stages, and some that are contraindicated throughout your entire pregnancy.
When mixing aromatherapy oils during pregnancy, you would use 10 drops of essential oils to 2 tablespoons of carrier oil.
For an aromatherapy bath you would add 6 to 10 drops of essential oils into the tub and mix well before getting in.
For a steam inhalation or warm compress you would use 3 to 6 drops of essential oil in a bowl of warm or hot water.
