TLC is a delicacy

I know with life things speed by and it is often easy to forget to treat yourself. I found this great book called Mama Glow by Latham Thomas that shares a lot of natural recipes, exercises, and other information that are good for a pregnant mom and also for anyone who wants to treat themselves to a little TLC. Below are couple of quick recipes that she had I wanted to share.

Hydrating Facial Masque  

This hydrating mask feels so good you could eat it… you actually can eat it. Avocado based and yummy to boot, this mask will restore moisture to your skin. Don’t forget your neck and upper chest. The French say the face ends at the breasts, so give your bust a little love, too, if you’re in the mood.

Take avocado and about ten drops of almond oil and whip with a spoon, then apply to face and neck. Let sit until it dries, the rinse with tepid water.


Stretch Mark Prevention  

  • 1 ounce wheat germ oil or almond oil
  • 1 ounce borage oil
  • 5 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 20 drops of neroli essential oil

Fill a dark glass bottle with wheat germ or almond oil and borage oil. Add lavender and neroli essential oils. Shake well prior to each use. Apply daily after bathing. Massage in circles, on, above, and beneath the blossoming belly.

Take a few minutes a day and love yourself your way!

Peace and Blessings,
