The other day, I was online looking up different belly balms for pregnancy when I realized I should just make my own! I already owned everything listed below and had been meaning to use up the rest of the shea and cocoa butter for a while.
I love using a balm during pregnancy. It feels nourishing and pampering. The ingredients are very moisturizing, soothing and help with the appearance of lines and scars. Now, I’m not saying if you use this you’ll get zero stretch marks because, really, genetics are going to dictate that! However, this can help (even with old stretch marks) and is still beneficial in other ways.
If you’re not pregnant, this is still a great balm to use! Use it anywhere on your body!
ps if you don’t feel like making your own balm, this is the one I used with my second pregnancy (contains sustainably harvested beeswax).
Do you use belly balms during pregnancy?
