Still looking for answers.
During my last pregnancy I used Rose Musk oil in our bedroom. Not burning it, just a few drops straight into a dries flower arrangement.
We just liked the smell.
Could it have caused/contributed to my miscarriage?

I doubt very much that that would have contributed to it.
I know that Clary Sage is an oil you can massage with to help bring on labour.
As for any others, Im sorry, Im not sure.
May I ask where you got rose musk from? The Body Shop used to do a perfume oil years ago but stopped doing it and I absolutely love it!
All the best.

No of course it's not real.
I paid $2 for it at the chemist! lol
But I love the smell, and so does DH.

There could be any number or reasons it happened and chances are you will never really know why. Try not to over think it when its such a terrible thing to have to deal with anyway without questioning what you could of changed or done differently.

Just iff the top of my head, bergamot, basil, rosemary, peppermint, eucalyptus are all oils to be avoided in pregnancy.
Lavendar is generally considered to be safe, and it used by naturpaths to help control inlfmmation (swelling ankles etc) in later pregnancy.
HOWEVER - check with someone who really knows what they're talking about - I just know what I've read in the DM OIls catalogue!
