For a new mom, stretch marks can be a major point of insecurity as her body changes and recovers. This all-natural balm soothes, nourishes, and smoothes.
DIY STRETCH MARK CREAM
1/3 cup organic coconut oil
1/2 cup organic shea butter
1 teaspoon organic cocoa butter
1 dropper Vitamin E oil
2 droppers Rosehip Oil
2 drops Frankincense Essential Oil
4 drops Lavender Essential Oil
- In a double boiler, melt the coconut oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter until they form a unified liquid.
- Pour the liquid into a glass jar and let it cool for approximately 10 minutes (until it’s room temperature).
- Mix in the Vitamin E oil, Rosehip Oil, and essential oils (you can combine them in an inversion blender if you’d like the cream to be more whipped).
- Let the mixture cool completely and then put the lid on the jar.
Where to use stretch mark cream
Store the cream in a cool, dark place and rub it onto the belly as needed. Make a fresh batch every five months.
