Stretch marks are one of women’s most common cosmetic issue. I am yet to e met a woman without stretch marks somewhere on her body, and I a yet to meet a woman who wouldn’t want to get rid of them! The truth is, to remove old deep stretch marks at home completely is not always possible. However, using essential oils you may remove small stretchmarks and make the deep ones less noticeable. Essential oils penetrate deep into the skin and improve blood circulation, relieve tension and increase muscle tone. You can dilute essential oils in a massage lotion or add them in baths to reduce stretchmarks.

Essential oils will need to be added to creams, lotions and mixtures for massage.
To prepare a mixture for massage add 3 drops of essential oil to 1 tbsp of carrier oil.
How to use essential oils in baths for stretch marks removal
Add a few drops of essential oils when taking a bath.
Essential oils are insoluble in water, therefore when preparing baths, you should use emulsifiers: milk, yogurt, honey or salt.
The optimal proportion is 5-6 drops of essential oils for every 2 tbsp of emulsifier. The duration of the procedures is 15 minutes, the optimum water temperature is 37-38 degrees.
Baths help to relax and relieve fatigue. Through open pores, active components penetrate deep under the skin and helps improving blood circulation.
