I am WORRIED ! It's my 7th week and I used basil and oregano in my omlette mix. I used like small tsp of 1 each (since I love these two herbs). But my hubby says it's used to induce labour and can cause me to lose my child !!! What should I do ? Is it that harmful? I am so stressed !!

Rebecca Prakash

Hey relax nothing like that. Both basil and oregano is good and continue having it.

Shweta Devadiga is there any issue consuming these ingredients ?

Satarupa B Kaur

No dear relax. these herbs might be heat producing so excess is never good.; However, there's no harm in a little. Please please don't stress.
