As we all know, being pregnant is wonderful……in a torturous kind of way! Oh, and don’t forget the stretch marks! Although I truly did love being pregnant, there was nothing worse than having an itchy stomach. I did find a recipe for a lotion that works great at stopping the itchy belly and helping with the stretch marks.
1/4 cup Shea Butter
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
3 Tablespoons almond Oil (I am working with an amazing new oil to replace this one. Once I am able to test it out I will add the new recipe)
1 Tablespoon Calendula Oil
1-3 drops Ginger essential oil
1/3 cup beeswax
Melt beeswax on low. Then add the coconut oil. The coconut oil will melt once added to the beeswax. Finish adding all the other oils. Blend in a kitchen aid stand mixer while it is cooling. Then place in a glass jar.
*note: mix on low to prevent liquid from splashing out.
