This recipe for belly oil was passed along to me from Jamie Titus at Emanata Chiropractic. She got the recipe from her sister, who got it from a friend, so we aren’t quite sure of the original source! Jamie enjoyed using it during her pregnancy and has found it to anecdotally reduce the likelihood of stretch marks! It isn’t just for the belly, but you can use it anywhere. Especially consider using it on breasts and the perineum. I haven’t made up my own batch to test out yet, but hope to soon! If you make some, please leave a comment below letting us know what you think of it!
2 Tbsp sesame oil
2 Tbsp avocado oil
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp almost oil
10,000 IU vitman E mixed tocopherols
200,000 USP units vitamin A
a few drops of your favorite perfume (optional)
Pour the oils into an empty bottle or small jar. Take 10 gelatin capsules of vitamin E (1,000 IU each) and capsules of vitamin A (25,000 units each). Puncture the capsules with a needle, or cut the ends off with a scissors, and squeeze the contents into the bottle. Add a drop or two of your favorite perfume (if using), close the cap tightly, and shake well. Store in the refrigerator.
This formula also works wel for those who have badly deteriorated complexions and a prematurely aged skin with wrinkles and blemishes. This formula will feed your skin with the nutrients it needs to help revitalized and restore its normal biological activity. The most effective way to use this formula is to take a few drops and massage it directly on to your skin every night before going to bed and to leave it on overnight. By morning it is usually totally absorbed into the skin.
