We get lots of emails from ladies asking which products they can use during pregnancy. There tends to be so much scaremongering online with regards to what you can use and what you can't. So much of which is totally conflicting advice. There are certain essential oils which you should avoid however most products are fine to use.
If you are concerned with what you shouldn't be using then always consult your doctor or midwife.
If you want to play it really safe then there are some great brands which cater specifically for pregnant ladies.
Cowshed Udderly Gorgeous is their range of products for those expecting. They also do some great products for your baby called Baby Cow organics.
The Udderly gorgeous stretch mark balm is a winner for us. It smells so divine that I'm sure not even a pregnant ladies sense of smell would be put off.
It comes in a large 250ml pot and is made from shea butter, coconut oil, sea buckthorn oil, cranberry, rosemary and calendula. Rich in Vitamin E it gives intensive moisturisation and encourages skin elasticity.
Stretch marks can ultimately be down to your genes however prevention is better than cure so slather this on to help give the skin it's best chance. This huge pot is £20.00.
Also from Cowshed is Udderly gorgeous leg and foot treatment. If you are suffering with swollen ankles or tired feet then this treatment is perfect. It has a cooling effect on application with a lightweight gel texture and is instantly absorbed. Contains witch hazel, green tea and sea buckthorn oil. Really refreshing and minty fresh.
This will be especially handy in the Summer months. Large 250ml tub and is £18.00.
