Take a basis of 50 ml of wheat germ oil. Add to it two drops of lavender oil, neroli and mandarin. Use once a week as a massage oil. Here it should be noted that the standard massage in the fight against stretch marks is not suitable. Intensive massage can further stretch the skin at the site of injury and cause the appearance of new stretch marks. Therefore, using the so-called "plucking massage": Apply the oil on the fingertips and light hammer tingling in the affected areas. Remains of essential oils remove the paper towel. Do not worry about that means no time to soak. Your skin is the first minutes of massage time to get enough of medical infusion, and what is left on the surface - a surplus.
Equally effective is considered an aromatic bath. Enter the water, add the sea salt and a couple of drops of chamomile oil and lavender. Just lie in the hot water does not need five minutes (if households suddenly start banging on the bathroom door), and at least an hour.

However, if you do not have time or opportunity to just put ether mixture to the usual plastic wrap, wrap it affected areas and leave for half an hour to operate. Be careful not to burn the skin. Do you feel a strong tingling? Then it is better to stop the procedure.
If all the proposed methods have been tried, and the results are not there, make a special wrap with essential oils. It is believed that this method of treatment is more effective than conventional rubbing. To do this, mix two drops of rose oil and one drop of oil of neroli and petit Grein.
