Can I use Deep Blue in Pregnancy?
The short answer is…Absolutely YES! It’s totally SIP/B – (Safe in pregnancy and breastfeeding)
dōTERRA has several products in their Deep Blue line including, Deep Blue oil, Deep Blue Touch (pre-diluted), Deep Blue Rub, Deep Blue Stick (with Copaiba), and Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex. These are ALL SIP/B – (Safe in pregnancy and breastfeeding)
Due to ethical issues in testing pregnant moms and their babies, there are limited clinical studies addressing the safety of essential oils during pregnancy. However, we can rely on the history of safe use to determine which essential oils to use during pregnancy.
You may see mixed information out there in different books about oils and their safety in pregnancy and with your newborn. Please understand these books were written with all oil users in mind. They will be ultra-conservative because their readers may not necessarily use the most trusted sourced oils. I will add a BIG caution here; PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do not purchase your oils from Amazon or from your local department store. You simply cannot be sure of the quality of these essential oils. The information I give in my book, here on my blog, or on my social media comes from my personal experience in my midwifery practice.
During pregnancy, there is heightened sensitivity, and we are very protective about what we put in our body, so we might use a little less of the oils but they can be used very effectively. dōTERRA has set a standard that reassures us we can use their oils with confidence including Deep Blue during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.
In the end, I always say to follow your own intuition. You are the one who was given stewardship over your body, and everyBODY is different, so do what you feel comfortable with.
