Before Christmas I had a request to put together a little present for a mum to be. Having looked through my skincare range I wasn’t confident that any of the potions I have would be suitable for a pregnant lady. Most of them contain essential oils.
After consulting a bunch of knowledgeable ladies I decided to go for natural, essential oil free, carefully combined from the finest ingredients, skincare products.
If you are expecting (Congratulations!!!), try this:
50ml rosehip oil
20ml hazelnut oil
20ml argan oil
10ml vitamin E
Later in pregnancy (about 6 months) you can add a few drops of well diluted essential oils such as Neroli, Lavender, Chamomile (1-1.5%). Rose (1-1.5%) corresponds well to the emotional needs of many pregnant woman.
Scale and pour the blend into a dark glass bottle. Feel free to mix the oils in different quantities to make up 100ml.
Rosehip oil (with added vitamin E) is the prime choice of helping to guard against permanent scarring.
