If you are pregnant, try this massage oil from MotherNature.com to help prevent stretch marks. The lavender essential oil also acts as a muscle relaxant.
Pregnant Belly Oil
4 400-International Unit vitamin E capsules
4 ounces almond (or any light vegetable) oil
½ ounce cocoa butter (available in drugstores)
15 drops lavender essential oil
Pop open the vitamin E capsules and squirt contents into almond oil. Heat mixture in a saucepan over low heat. Add cocoa butter. After cocoa butter melts, remove mixture from heat and let cool. Add essential oil and stir to blend. Massage the oil on your belly— or get someone to do it for you—at least once a day, or as often as you like.
