After the massage I noticed she had used small amounts of peppermint oil. Is this dangerous?

Hi Alex,
I have fluid in my feet and ankles, my ob told me to get a lymphatic massage. After the massage I noticed she had used small amounts of peppermint oil. Is this dangerous? I`m 31 weeks pregnant.
Thanks

Sarah...
Answer: Hi, Essential oils are fine for use in later pregnancy. Some oils are not recommended in the first trimester. Best wishes, Alex
