None of the essential oils listed are found in Natural Creation’s pregnancy products. Clary Sage, Jasmine, and Lemongrass are found in products created for use during labour and the postpartum period. Our product labels are conveniently coded to help you determine which stage of the childbearing year the product has been created for. The essential oils chosen for each product are appropriate for the stage they are labeled. Our products are created with a low concentration of essential oils appropriate for the sensitivity of pregnant & new moms, and babies. We do not recommend the use any of our products in your first trimester and suggest consulting your healthcare provider or aromatherapist if you have any medical conditions that would contradict the use of essential oils.

Please feel free to contact Emily and Chelsea anytime if you have any questions about our products and the ingredients we use.
