Hi Jo, congratulations! I see you have since had your baby & thought I would reply to your post for others out there who might wonder themselves about aromatherapy.
I do not know about the product you had, but I use my oil burner ocasionally and you do have to be very careful using the oils.
The oils are ment to be more diluted than usual (down to 1-2% I think I read) & there are certain oils which are you should not use in pregnancy, I think the main one to avoid is Rosemary, I think it is a stimulant & can raise blood pressure, but these are the ones that I read about and found "must" be avoided:
Aniseed, Basil, Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Cypress, Fennel, Jasmine, Juniperberry, Marjoram, Myrrh, Nutmeg, Peppermint, Rosemary, Thyme
Lavender, Rose, Chamomile and Geranium should be avoided during your first trimester, or if you have a previous history of miscarriage.
