Since I found out I was pregnant I’ve been using coconut oil as a moisturizer every night. A friend gave me a recipe for a moisturizing body oil out of an herbal book but I couldn’t find some of the ingredients so I just made up my own version of the super-moisturizing body oil. It isn’t really oily at all. It smells delicious and absorbs quickly. It’s great for stretch mark prevention but is also a wonderful body moisturizer. Enjoy!
1/2 cup cocoa butter
1/2 cup coconut oil
3/4 cup vitamin E oil (or 5,000 IU’s)
3/4 cup jojoba oil
1/2 almond oil
1 tsp. lanolin
On low heat, slowly melt all these ingredients together until smooth. Let it cool before transferring it into a jar. A little goes a long way, rub it onto your skin after showering or before bed and let it absorb before dressing.
