While having a baby is exciting there is one thing most women fear – STRETCH MARKS! When I was pregnant with my daughter in 2002, I was paranoid about getting stretch marks. I’d seen friends and family member stretch marks as a result of having a baby and I was terrified of what having this angel would do to my body! But I didn’t just sit around and wait for it to happen; I took matters into my own hands! I did some research on ingredients I could use that would help prevent stretch marks. I then concocted this glorious mixture that saved my skin, LITERALLY!! There was no real reason or rhyme for the amounts I added in or the combination, I just used those things I’d read were healthy for the skin. BUT honey honey honey, IT WORKED! Now I had to do my part and that was for the 7 months I had left of my pregnancy I vowed to slather my belly, breast and hips with this Belly butter faithfully every night and every morning … well in the morning I only rubbed a little on because it is greasy!! At night I bought inexpensive t-shirts because I knew it would get greasy!! I told my husband “if I should sleep before I slather, grease my belly well”!
Absolutely NO STRETCH MARKS was my result! I was so happy I documented the recipe because when I had my son in 2005, I gained far more weight than I did when I had my daughter! But again, I slathered every night and rubbed every morning and AGAIN NO STRETCH MARKS!!
Then one of my best friends got pregnant and she shared with me she was using a popular stretch mark cream but was still experiencing itching sensations. So I made up a batch for her. She told me the itchy feeling went away immediately and after she gave birth was pleased to report NO STRETCH MARKS! Another best friend had a baby girl – gave her some, same results NO STRETCH MARKS! Now while I cannot guarantee this recipe will work for you, I can attest that it worked for me twice and on two other girlfriends.
