  • Bergamot
  • Coriander
  • Frankincense
  • Geranium
  • Grapefruit
  • Lavender
  • Lemon
  • Sandalwood
  • Wild Orange
  • Ylang Ylang

Oils that for some would be better used diluted with a carrier oil: 
  • Clove
  • Cypress
  • Eucalyptus
  • Ginger
  • Helichrysum
  • Marjoram
  • Melaleuca
  • Myrrh
  • Oregano

  • Cinnamon bark
  • Clary Sage
  • Lemongrass

* Use Peppermint essential oil sparingly near the end of your pregnancy and while breastfeeding. Mint is known to decrease milk production.

To increase milk supply use Clary Sage and Geranium. Helichrysum, Lavender and Roman Chamomile are very helpful for sore nipples.

There are wellness supplements that are highly recommended during pregnancy for both the benefit of the mother and developing baby. Please email us for more information.
