What perfume and/or essential oil fragrance do you recommend for pregnant or those trying to conceive?

I have a lot of pregnant friends (or those trying to conceive - TTC) that are looking for safer more natural products. I know some essential oils are actually dangerous.

What safe recommendations can you make for fragrances, perfumes, and/or essential oils to them that you or people you know have used?

They are not using the fragrance to conceive -they just want to smell good in the hot weather but using something with the least chance of interfering with conception/pregnancy.

Thanks a bunch!

I think that vanilla perfumes would be safe at least, actually that's the only fragrance I would use if I was pregnant. Yakshi naturals makes a roll on with just vanilla and coconut oil.

The last prenatal massage I got, they used chamomile essential oil (diluted to the point I couldn't really smell it though).

While trying to conceive I wouldn't worry too much, I'd suggest they wear whatever puts them in the mood for baby makin'. There's some wiggle room between conception and implantation that would give the body time to clear out the small dose of oil worn as a scent.

Currently being pregnant, with the hypersensitive sense of smell that comes with it, I can't really imagine using many scented products on my body right now would be pleasant. I can handle the little bit of peppermint in my lip balm, and the lavender in my shampoo. Bee's wax, coconut, and vanilla all smell divine to me right now, but the last two make me hungry, so maybe just the bee's wax natural scent would be safest if you are making products for other people.

Trying to conceive?

Make sure the women are eating REAL FOOD, specifically natural animal fats! Good ol' beef tallow and lard will do a lot more for fertility than jasmine or chamomile or frankincense oil...

Sephora (or you can order on Amazon too) carries a vanilla fragrance by lavanilla that is all natural- this same brand also makes a natural deodorant and body lotion- they smell absolutely divine)....I agree that vanilla is the safest bet- most essential oils are very strong with varying properties so I would avoid topically applying the majority of them while pregnant.
