Natural Stretch Mark Cream - Aromatherapy for Beginners
Author: Kelly - Simple Life Mom
Topical, Safe for Ages 12+ This cream promotes healing, and it can reduce the appearance of stretch marks. The cocoa butter, coconut oil, and jojoba oil provide deep moisture. Don't be surprised if you find yourself applying this lovely moisturizer even to unaffected areas.
  1. In a small bottle, combine the geranium, lavender, patchouli, and roman chamomile essential oils. Let them rest overnight.
  2. In a double boiler over medium-low heat, combine the cocoa butter and coconut oil. Stir until the ingredients are just melted.
  3. Add the jojoba oil and the blended essential oils. Transfer the liquefied blend to a small bowl and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  4. With a handheld mixer, whip the solidified cream until it has a light, silky texture. Transfer the balm to a bowl with a tight-fitting lid.
  5. Use your fingertips to apply ½ teaspoon of the cream to each effected area and repeat at least twice daily.
  6. Store the cream in a cool, dark place between uses.
Tip: You can use mango or shea butter instead of the cocoa butter, or leave out the jojoba oil and cocoa butter in favor of a simpler balm made with 1 cup coconut oil.
