Stretch Mark Soother
Pickle's Potions has been researching and experimenting with stretch mark salves, butters, and oils for some time... I do have 2 children after all, along with all the 'Tiger Stripes' they helped create.
Over time, this balm has evolved from just using plain unrefined cocoa butter, to a creamy balm that includes Omega 3,6, and 9, as well as the mark-reducing cocoa butter, healing rosehip seed oil, evening primrose oil, and a hefty dose of vitamin E. It now also includes pracaxi oil, which is amazing for scars.
Pickle's Stretch Mark Soother can help improve the appearance of stretch-marked skin and scars. These natural oils and butters help to rejuvenate and restore your skin and absorb easily to nourish your tender skin and promote skin elasticity.
This balm also helps to alleviate the itching during pregnancy (and after!).
****Although the essential oil ratios are quite low in this formula (1.5% total), if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, I can make this without any essential oils. ****
I NEVER use any harmful synthetic fragrances, phthalates, parabens, sulfates, or toxins.

Works wonderfully as a body butter, although I did buy it specifically for my upper arms. After gaining and then losing some weight, my arms are covered in stretch marks. I am faithfully massaging this in my arms after bathing. It feels so nice. Time will tell if it heals up the marks completely, but I think I can see some fading already.
