My MIL inhaled large quantities of the stuff through each of her 4 pregnancies to combat 9 months of terrible all day morning sickness. She said it was the only thing that helped settle her stomach and she'd carry a bottle of the pure stuff everywhere to inhale, as well as dabbing it on her clothes liker perfume! Her babies were all fine and today are healthy, happy 45, 42, 38 and 36 year olds!

When I had the flu the other week I used eucalyptus oil steams & rubbed Vicks vaporub on my chest. I had a mw appt the week after & everything seemed to be just fine

I was addicted to eucalyptus drops wen i was pregnant. Couldnt stop eating them. No harm done.
I wouldnt worry about it.

I just read up on it and it said on two reputable sites that camphor taken orally or topically are not recommended in pregnancy as it crosses the placenta and can be harmful to a small foetus but inhalation is thought to be ok.
I'll still not use it anymore but at least I'm now relieved as I didn't drink it or rub it in!

Don't panic! I was in the EXACT position you are in now. I rang my MW and GP and all is fine. As long as you didn't consume any orally you and the baby are perfectly fine!! Believe me, I panicked and rang and saw everyone. I have a very healthy and cheeky bubba! xx
