All Natural Stretch Mark Salve
Rosehip oil is high in antioxidants, including vitamin A and vitamin C. Shea butter and coconut oil are both hydrating and anti-inflammatory, while frankincense, neroli, and patchouli all have anti-scarring properties. Frankincense and patchouli also promote cellular regeneration, which encourage new skin growth and healing in areas of stretch marks.
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup rosehip oil
10 drops frankincense essential oil
10 drops patchouli essential oil
10 drops neroli essential oil
Optional: use 1/4 cup calendula-infused olive oil instead of coconut oil. To make this, put 1 oz dried calendula flowers into 8 oz olive oil. Place in a cool dark place and let soak for 4 weeks (that’s why this is optional!), shaking once per day. NOTE: If you use this method, you’ll need to melt about 1 tbsp of beeswax (shreds or chips) into your mixture as you warm it on the stove in order to get your salve thickened up (otherwise it’ll be more like an oil than a salve). You can also get pre-made calendula oil.
