I’m pregnant, can I use your products?


There is a lot of information about pregnancy that can be very confusing, so to clear the fog of information we at Penny Badger Botanicals have done some research and asked some of our mums to be that use our products what they use.

First Trimester.

It is recommended that you stay away from all essential oils during this period but as our products contain such small amounts of essential oils we don’t consider there is any risk, this is just our opinion and if you have any history of pregnancy problems you may decide to not use any essential oils at all. It is important that you are comfortable with this so take time to consider your decision.

Second & Third Trimester

At this point if you are having a normal healthy pregnancy you should be fine with a skin care regime to cope with your pregnancy skin that can become, red, spotty, sensitive and dry.

Products that are useful during pregnancy are:

Intensive Deep Cleansing Oil 

Intensive Soothing Cleansing Lotion

Intensive Floral Facial Toner            

Intensive Moisture Day Cream Sensitive 

Intensive Sensitive Serum

Intensive Rescue Serum



Products that we would advise not to use are:

Intensive Calming Face Wash as although it contains lavender which is ok during pregnancy it does contain much higher levels than our other products as it is a wash-off product.

Intensive Serum Dry Skin and Intensive Mature Serum as although all the essential oils are ok during pregnancy they are in higher quantities than the other products in our range.
