This DIY belly rub supports mama’s skin, especially during and after pregnancy when your belly is changing. This recipe supports healthy skin and normal signs of aging. I used this recipe when I was pregnant and early postpartum with all three of my kids and I must say, it is amazing!!
I loved using this belly butter both during and after pregnancy to help heal my stretched skin. With a growing bump, it can become itchy and dry when you don’t keep your skin moisturized.
I’ve found that all of those store-bought belly lotions are pricey and like usual, I want to know what is inside the products I use, especially during pregnancy. That is why I decided to start making my own and it is super cheap to make.
Along with this belly rub, I used essential oils during pregnancy. But as always, consult your doctor about that. Mine supports the use of essential oils.
DIY Belly Rub
To make your own belly rub you will need:
- 1/4 cup organic extra virgin coconut oil
- 2 drops lavender essential oil
- 2 drops frankincense essential oil
- 4 oz Mason Jar
Combine the oils in a mason jar for storing. Apply to the belly and to stressed skin twice daily.

Do you think this would work years after have a baby? I’m wanting to try it, but if it has been used right when the stretch marks happen in pregnancy there may be no point.
Hi Crystal! I have heard that this recipe has worked for mamas who are several years postpartum but I know every body is different. Worth a try in my opinion 🙂 If anything it will make your skin feel smooth and moisturized.
