Last year, when one of our own got pregnant, we set out to make the most nourishing and regenerative belly balm ever. Now we can certainly confirm that we accomplished our goal!
This balm is by no means cheap, but if you want the ultimate protection against stretch marks, cracks, extreme dryness and damage, look no further. It has zero filler; every single ingredient in this recipe contributes directly to the healing action.
In addition to being a balm for big beautiful pregnant bellies, this could be used on any area of scarring or stretch marks, as well as extremely dry or chapped parts of the body such as elbows, cheeks and heals.
Here you have it friends, our tried and tested Ultimate Belly Balm.
This recipe was designed to make roughly enough balm for an entire pregnancy, so you can scale it down if you'd like to start with a smaller quantity or up for an even larger batch.
