Pregnancy brings a great deal of joy and excitement. Stretch marks are not an example. If your skin is stretching while your bundle of joy makes himself at home, consider an herbal treatment. Using aromatherapy, you can moisturize your skin and relieve the effects of the stretch marks. At the same time, process and aromas will help you relax so you can focus on the growing person inside you, not the stretch marks he’s kicking into your skin. Talk with your doctor before trying any herbal treatment.
Mix 1 oz. nut or avocado oil with five drops of essential oil, in the dropper bottle.
Drip a few drops of oil onto your skin, focusing on the areas with stretch marks.
Massage the oil into your skin. Focus on your belly, but also rub your legs, arms, breasts and other areas where you are gaining weight.
- Do not use geranium, rose or chamomile oil.
