Is the Spa Safe During Pregnancy?

Watch out for essential oils

Be wary of aromatherapy and essential oils during pregnancy because not a lot is known about them. Some substances do transfer through the skin and could be harmful for the fetus if they got into your circulation, says Dr. Greenfield. There are some oils, such as lemon and rosewood, that are believed to be safe during pregnancy, but always check with your spa therapist first.
