These two words have evoked dread in the minds of pregnant women for centuries. But all is not hopeless. You can diminish and even prevent stretch marks with the use of an effective moisturizing product with skin nourishing ingredients.
With my last pregnancy I used the oft-recommended cocoa butter brand. I still got a significant amount of stretch marks. This time I am not taking any chances. Planet Earth Essential Oils came to my rescue with the Organic Hydrating Belly Oil.
Product description from website: "It provides natural skin repairing and nourishing oils of Avocado, Jojoba, Rosehip, and Sweet Almond oil that soothe and moisturized the stretching skin over your belly. For added healing properties we blend essential oils of Jasmine and Mandarin which works to minimize stretch marks, reduce itchiness, while giving off a wonderful floral scent.Unlike many aromatherapy products, Planet Earth Essential Oils Hydrating Pregnant Belly Balm is safe to use while pregnant."
I used the oil as directed, after I showered and before bedtime. I immediately felt relief from the itchy dryness and felt less tightness in my belly skin. Maybe it's because the oil is absorbed faster than a lotion, bream, or butter which can be too thick to pass through the pores of the skin. I also find the scent very soothing. Whatever the science behind the effectiveness of this product, I am sold! I look forward to a stretch-mark free pregnancy thanks to Planet Earth Essential Oils Organic Hydrating Belly Oil. Plus, it's formulated by a Mother who is Certified in Aromatherapy, so I know I can trust it.
Planet Earth Essential Oils makes other products for mommy and baby, in addition to an entire bath and body care line, aromatherapy items, and perfumes! I gave Marlie's Sunday School teacher the Jasmine Cocoa Perfume Balm as a gift. She loved it!
