Lavender tea?

A friend bought me the loveliest tea. It has lavender and coconut in it and rooibos. Partway through a cup I realized I should check it for safety and found half the stuff I found saying avoid lavender and half saying tea is ok!

What do you all do? Still use or avoid?

I heard you're supposed to stay away from all lavender products when pregnant.. including lavender in the bath

I've also heard yes and no regarding using lavender in pregnancy and can't seem to find a definite answer. I think there just hasn't been enough research done to know for sure. My midwife said a cup of lavender tea here and there probably won't hurt you, but she wouldn't recommend using lavender essential oil which is a lot more concentrated, or drinking the tea very often. Like with everything else during pregnancy, it's probably fine in moderation.
