I am completely in love with Burt's Bees Milk & Honey lotion. It smells divine and it's thick and creamy and moisturizing. I could probably eat it because it smells so good. I used it all during my last pregnancy too and it kept me from being all super itchy all the time.

When I get out of the shower and am still damp I'll put on either EMAB Natural Stretch Oil or Dr. Hauschka Blackthorn body Oil. Afterward I use Wiseways Herbals Beautiful Belly Balm which is the best best best.

Another vote for Earth Mama Angel Baby stretch oil.  I also really like their body butter.  I used the oil for my last pregnancy, and also to put on my scar when doing massage.

I love the EMAB oil, but it really is pricey... so I usually only use it on my belly.  For everything else, I just bought a big bottle of pure almond oil from Whole Foods and have been using that all over my body.  I am totally in love with it!  It smells wonderful and helps tremendously with the itch factor.  Especially after shaving my legs! 

 

Four Elements also makes some wonderful products that are made from ingredients grown on their own organic farm. http://www.fourelementsherbals.com/  I like to support them because it is such a great little company!

Almond oil is lovely and extra lovely when used as a lubricant winky.gif

May I ask if you are talking about perineal massage?  I've been wondering what I should use for that.  If not never mind me.  LOL!

It says on the bottle that it can be used for perineal massage.  I've also used it for shoulders/back etc massage.  I was referring to caesarean scar massage, unfortunately.

I had no idea they offered a perineum specific oil! I've never done it but it's neat to know about this product.
