Now, for my first pregnancy I’m so grateful to say I did not get stretch marks. But I’ll have you know I didn’t make and use this cream in my first pregnancy. All I did was put pure cocoa butter on my tummy, and it worked like a dream.
But this time around I had a recipe from For The Love of Body and all the ingredients, so I went for it!
The result is a smooth and buttery cream that I slather on my growing tummy as often as I can (1-2 times per day).
Here are the ingredients as pictured above:
-1 part shea butter
-1 part cocoa butter
-1 part coconut oil
-1/4 part apricot kernel oil
-1 part calendula infused olive oil
Using your double broiler or a pot and stainless steel bowl, melt the butters and then add the coconut oil and melt. Take away from heat and stir in liquid oils, then add a little vitamin E. Pour into a jar and store at room temperature. Use generously!
