    VegeMight's Note:

    This is a beautiful rich balm that I've made to massage into my belly during pregnancy. Rich, nourishing and natural. Ingredients can be sourced from health food shops. You can add a couple of drops of essential oil, if desired.

      I know, with my knowledge of working with different carrier and exotic oils that this is a sound recipe from the ingredients listed. But my only caution would be to be very careful about using essential oils during pregnancy. Unless you are familiar with their own special properties, some could promote labour. Mind you, if you are 10 months pregnant, this might be somethat you do want!!!
