The Franklin School of Integrative Health Sciences’ research team is conducting a clinical trial on the use of essential oils in pregnancy. Our research team is studying the effects of essential oils on nausea, vomiting, and overall quality of life. This study is for women in the first trimester.

THE STUDY

“THE EFFECTS OF AROMATHERAPY ON MORNING SICKNESS AND QUALITY OF LIFE IN EARLY PREGNANCY

PARTICIPANTS: NOW RECRUITING

We are now recruiting for a research study on essential oils in pregnancy. If you live in the United States, are in your first trimester, and are interested in participating, we invite you to learn more.

You may qualify to participate if you:

  • are pregnant.
  • are between the ages of 18 and 45 years old.
  • do not have a diagnosis of hyperemesis gravidarum.
  • live in a tobacco-free home.

Please note: The study is 1 week long. If you decide to volunteer, you must complete the study before the end of your first trimester. We suggest that you volunteer for the study before you reach 10 or 11 weeks of pregnancy. This helps to ensure that you have time to complete the study. If you choose to volunteer in this study for essential oils in pregnancy and are selected to participate, you will be mailed a kit. This kit contains the essential oil-based intervention and all of the materials you need.
