we’ve been talking about pregnancy a lot lately and wanted to give you an overview of a few ways you can use our LOBA’S (lotion ball) to assist your well-being from from bump, to birth.
1. stretchmarks : our NATIVE and FRANK+SHEA loba’s are incredible for a belly cream (also, butt/boob/full body🤷🏼♀️) to avoid getting stretch marks while your body is growing to make space for your baby. (PATCHOULI and LAVENDER loba’s will both help with skin elasticity too. if you love those smells and their other benefits you can certainly use those loba’s for stretch mark prevention as well.)
2. perinea laceration (tears) during delivery: yes, yes this is true. our FRANK+SHEA loba is a fabulous cream to use “down there” a few weeks before giving birth to create more elasticity in your fragile skin. the frankincense in the FRANK+SHEA can also help you feel alert and grounded during your pregnancy, especially those final days that are tough.
3. insomnia: we know how frustrating it can be to not get the sleep you need during pregnancy. our LAVENDER and PATCHOULI loba’s will give you incredible moisturize AND can help decrease insomnia. (our tip: get your SO to give you a little 🦶 (or full body 🤷🏼♀️) massage every night with the lavender or patchouli loba’s to lull you off to dreamland.)
4. hormones: our PATCHOULI loba can help to keep your hormones balanced for an overall feeling of groundedness AND it can increase your libido to keep the fire alive during and after pregnancy. the hormone balancing effects of the PATCHOULI loba include hormonal acne (face, arms, back, etc.) we recommend using it as a mask at night, or if you’re using it as a morning moisturizer to wear under makeup, plan a little extra time to let the moisture and nutrients sink into your skin before applying foundation or powder.
all of our loba’s are anti-inflammatory, antioxidant-rich, anti-aging and filled will nutrients for the largest organ in your body.
