Q: I'm pregnant or I'd like to buy an Eye pillow or Eye mask for someone who is. Can you advise me?
We do not advise the use of any of our 6 specialist blends when pregnant or breast feeding. All essential oils should be used with caution during this time .
We use the attached guidelines for safe single oils in pregnancy namely :Camomile, Lavender, Sweet Orange and Rose -by inhalation (smelling) only .Peppermint is fine for occasional use during headaches /migraines .
All Eye masks can be used any time .Eye pillows are safe to use in pregnancy (and can be very therapeutic and relaxing ) unless the expectant mum has a very LOW blood pressure or pulse when an Eye pillow may exacerbate this, by causing dizziness on standing immediately after its use
