When I became pregnant with my first child I decided that I needed to get every chemical off of my skin and out of my body. I had already been in the process of doing this, but when I found out that these skin care products could potentially harm my growing baby, everything had to go!

My loving, hippie mom whipped up some awesome miracle oil to prevent stretch marks. Let me tell you, not only did I not get one stretch mark so far with my four pregnancies, but this stuff is also amazing for your skin in general! So silky and moisturizing….and it smells like chocolate! Who wouldn’t want to run their belly with chocolate every night before bed?!

Here is why this stuff works: 

  • Coconut Oil: coconut oil provides deep and real moisture. It helps strengthen underlying tissues and helps remove excessive dead cell on the skin’s surface that makes your skin rough and flaky in texture (source)
  • Cocoa Butter: widely noted to help reduce stretch marks. Cocoa Butter contains a number of different antioxidants that can kill off a wide range of different free radicals that destroy your skin cells and lead to premature aging. This makes it an ideal skin care product (source)
  • Sweet Almond Oil: Increases skin elasticity
