How To Use
Use daily. This butter melts with your body heat and a little goes a long way. Pay special attention to your tummy, upper thighs, buttocks and breasts where stretch marks most commonly appear. However, when you need to avoid essential oils in the first trimester and may prefer not to use fragranced products, it can be used all over as a nourishing body butter.
Massage – During the first trimester rub gently onto your tummy.
From the second trimester place one hand on top of the other and massage slowly in large circles in a clockwise direction. If you have a willing partner to massage you get yourself comfortable in a semi reclined position (as you progress through your pregnancy you will want to sit more upright). Facing you, your partner should warm Stretch Butter in their hands before gently placing them on your sides at the bottom of your bump, fingers facing towards your back. Drawing their hands towards each other they turn them so fingers are facing up the body as they reach the centre before massaging upwards. As they reach the top of your bump they should gently glide back down the sides to the starting position. It is easiest to think of this as drawing a large heart shape. This massage helps to draw the rectus abdominus muscles in and is a wonderful opportunity to connect with each other and your growing baby.
