Moving towards a more healthy existence has made me rethink chemically enhanced fragrance. Although I don't think I'll give up the bottle of Chloe I just purchased I have wondered what essential oils could do for my skin. I'll work on the whole perfume thing later....
A number of people I have recently spoke to have changed up their regular moisturizers for essential oils mixed in carrier oil like almond oil, wheatgerm, and the one I bought, Peach Kernel oil. I decided that I, being a lover of beauty products, couldn't give up on all my regular serums and moisturizers but I could create a oil for stretchmarks and see what type of results I get.
1 oz Peach kernel oil
2 dashes of Almond oil
3 drops of frankincense essential oil
3 drops of mandarin essential oil
I used it for the first time last Sunday and love how it absorbs into my skin easily leaving a mild citrus scent, which is much better than the Mederma with lemon scent I have been using. I have always been a bit wary about using chemicals near my breast where I have the most stretchmarks so my homemade version takes that uneasiness of applying it daily away. I'll keep a close eye on the results and let you know in a week or two hows it going.
