Treatment of Stretch Marks with Essential Oils

Stretch Marks: 

Stretch marks are usually associated with pregnancy, but they can also occur with sudden weight gain, rapid increases in muscle mass, and Cushing's disease. Stretch marks are scars that begin as reddish to purplish lines before eventually losing their color. Stretch marks are primarily of cosmetic concern; if essential oils don't work, a dermatologist may be able to remove them via surgical methods.

Neat Helichrysum Treatment: 

Helichrysum essential oil improves skin's elasticity while rapidly healing damaged tissue. This remedy is most effective on new stretch marks, and if treated early on, you may be able to eliminate them completely. Using this essential oil may fades older stretch marks if they are not serious; however, do not be surprised if only a small change occurs. Using your fingertips, apply the helichrysum essential oil liberally to new stretch marks once a day until satisfied.

Jasmine-Mandarin Massage:

Jasmine and mandarin essential oils help damaged tissue heal while softening and smoothing surrounding tissue.
