Abstract

This paper examines the potential dangers for pregnant, labouring, and newly delivered women of using essential oils without adequate knowledge of the actions of the chemical constituents of the oils. Although the discussion focuses specifically on the use of essential oils by midwives, the principles could equally apply to other health professionals.
