I am currently ebf my 51/2 month old daughter but i have a terrible head cold possible sinus infection. I want to use Eucalyptus oil to put in hot water and breathe in. I am also interested in using Oil of Oregano. I cant seem to find any solid information on the safety of these while breastfeeding. Can anyone enlighten me? For now i'm doing nothing for fear that everything will kill my supply. But i'm getting desperate!!Thanks so much!
