Aromatherapy is especially suited to pregnancy because of the gentle nature of many essential oils, although they must be used with knowledge and care. Our Pregnancy Collection was designed by a Certified Aromatherapist. There are only a handful of essential oils safe for pregnant woman. We have blended our collection using these safe essential oils. Pregnant women should be cautious when using body and skin products containing, for example, lemon essential oil, as this oil may cause miscarriage and premature birth. At Belly Buttons & Babies we use only those few safe essential oils.
Drawing on her experience as an Early Childhood Educator, specializing in new born babies, and a Certified Aromatherapist, Fran noticed many babies would have skin irritation. There had to be a way to ease this. There also had to be a way expectant and new mothers could pamper themselves at the same time.
