kinds of herbs
can you tell me which herbs and essentialoils to avoid during pregnancy? donâ€™t use aloe vera because it can causemiscarriage and birth defects. it is in all kinds of skin creams, even thosefor stretch marks and bruises. as a skin cream, it is fine. it is drinkingaloe vera as a laxative that is dangerous. donâ€™t take angelica or black cohosh becausethey can trigger early labor. it was even
kinds of herbs, used to jumpstart childbirth. and as an early abortifacient. caraway and celery seed can have the sameeffect. but given everything going on, i could rest easy if i can find a way to use the sameremedies i use to stay healthy.
lavender oil and chamomile essential oilscan be used when you are pregnant without even being diluted. iâ€™ve heard of some people diluting essentialoils with other oils like coconut to use during pregnancy. many essential oils from citronella to oreganoto parsley to rosemary need to be avoided during pregnancy. avoid oregano and parsley? now i canâ€™t eatitalian. spices used in cooking are a small portionof the meal, while the chemicals they carry are far more concentrated in the essentialoils.
so my healthy living regimen gets put on holduntil i have the baby. you canâ€™t just jump back into using essentialoils after childbirth. peppermint oil can decrease your milk production. someone told me that i canâ€™t have gingerduring the pregnancy, yet that is one of the standard herbs to control nausea. you can have ginger ale for nausea. you shouldnâ€™tuse ginger essential oil. are oats safe during pregnancy? sure. oatmeal is a great way to treat constipationduring pregnancy. i meant oats as an herb.
you can certainly take a bath in oatmeal totreat skin rashes, if they arise, even if pregnant. i would rather take a bath in calamine. it is probably safe, but if in doubt, askyour doctor.
