Pregnant Belly Salve
For expectant mothers, this nourishing belly balm is a Necessity. Maintaining the skin's elasticity and hydration as your belly expands is crucial to ensuring that the skin stretches without leaving scars or stretch marks that cannot be removed. Pumpkin seed oil is packed with antioxidants that repair the skin and reduces dark spots, or hyperpigmentation of the skin. Cocoa butter is rich in phytonutrients that penetrate the skin and lock in moisture to hydrate and relieve dry, itchy skin. Wheat germ oil softens the skin and promotes elasticity to prevent stretch marks on the belly, back, and hip areas.
An essential oil blend of lavender and tea tree improves blood flow to the skin cells and increases collagen production while providing relaxing aromatherapy.
Apply directly to the affected area and rub it into the skin, and re-apply throughout the day as needed.
