I had a similar question when I was pregnant because I like to use products with lavender essential oil and I asked my midwife if it was safe to use. She told me that the amount of actual essential oil in these products is pretty minimal and then the amount of oil that can be absorbed into the bloodstream via oil on the skin is also ver minimal. So much so that it does not pose a risk to pregnant women. She basically said that one would have to drink he essential oil in question to be at risk. 

Just one pesrpetcive but I personally would not worry. I used lotions and potions with essential oils all throughout my first pregnancy and everything was fine for me.

Agreed, in minimal amounts they should be fine.
