...I am now 37+1 and desperate to use my (very expensive) bath oil I got for xmas in my bath.
It says on the jar not to use when pregnant as it can stimulate the uterus (?) and I havent used any for the whole pregnancy, but am desperate for a long soak (ds out for the day with PIL) and would love to try it.....is it safe?
Surely the baby wont arrive til its ready anyway???
Clary sage is listed as one of the ways of naturally inducing labour either by massage or bathing in the essential oil.
I do believe that babies come when they are ready. At 37 weeks your baby would be considered full term if it arrived. My DS was born at 37 weeks but I wouldn't do anything to rush my latest baby out.
i've had preterm labour and been told to tay away from essential oils until my due date. Last night, DH mistook my bottle of clary sage oil for olbas and put some on a tissue in the bedroom. We both had a brilliant nights sleep, it's very relaxing. (I've got mine for inhaling during early labour)
Baby has stayed put but I've got a major headache this am
