Is Prana+Therapy safe to use during pregnancy?

The synergy formula in Prana+Therapy has been diluted down into a safe and balancing solution at less than 1/2% dilution, making it suitable for use during pregnancy. However, the old adage "when in doubt, dont" remains true. It is recommended that one use caution during the first trimester and avoid the use of most essential oils where possible. Geranium, grapefruit, lavender, lemon, orange and patchouli are the greater oils used in Prana+Therapy are suitable for use after the first trimester.

Many of the claims made in aromatherapy books and articles about not using particular oils during pregnancy are unfounded. Many of these claims are not based on the essential oil concerned, but are from the traditionally claimed effects of the water soluble herbal extracts when taken internally. Such extracts are totally different to the same plant's oil. Essential oils are commonly used as flavourings. It appears then that legislation would have restricted the use of essential oils, even if there was the slightest evidence that using essential oils externally was a risk to the health of a fetus. However wintergreen and birch oils should be avoided when pregnant. This indication is due to the main chemical methyl salicylate that could possibly be absorbed by the skin. Exceeding levels of methyl salicylate in the bloodstream is not a good idea during pregnancy. Prana+Therapy does not contain wintergreen or birch.

The America FDA requires labels to have a caution against using essential oils during pregnancy. The reason for this is due to rare cases of complications in some tests. We advise that you should check with your doctor first before using essential oils while you are pregnant.

However, pregnant woman around the world are using essential oils every day. There are many aromatherapy books with various self prepared formulas just for pregnant women.

By ingesting the oils or using them in suppositories the whole essential oil, and all of its components, find their way directly into the blood. However this caution is mostly regarding ingested essential oils in their whole and concentrated form.
