Are You Pregnant or Breast feeding? Here Are The Safe Essential Oils For You

Essential oils are extracted from various fruit, petals, berries, flowers, and leaves by steam distillation. Essential oils can be diffused into the air to calm your nerves and stimulate your mind, to promote and support radiant, healthy skin and hair, to formulate fragrances and perfumes, and for other uses.

The price of Essential Oils depends on the materials needed for the extraction.

Essential Oils are generally toxic and are not advisable to be applied on the skin undiluted. However, after diluting the essential oil with a large ratio of Carrier oil, some are still not body friendly to pregnant and lactating mothers.

Most researchers recommend the total avoidance of Essential oils for pregnant and lactating mothers, but some essential oils will have no effect when mixed in the right proportion (not more than 2% of the whole product).
