A little while ago I told you that my youngest sister is pregnant with the first grandchild in the family. She’s currently at 26 weeks, and thankfully both mum and baby are doing well.
I was delighted when I was contacted by Motherly Love, a company that specialises in oils for pregnancy and beyond. Founded and created by Jan, a mother, grandmother, midwife and nurse of over 40 years, all of the oils contain natural products and are made in the UK and the packaging is 100% recyclable.
One of the biggest complaints my sister has is itching and minor pains on her stomach (mainly due to the fact that her skin is being stretched) so she tested the award winning Relaxing Bath Oil. With ingredients like jojoba, coconut, apricot and lavender, it is designed to reduce the suppleness of the skin and provide a relaxing scent at the end of a stressful day. I asked her what she thought:
It smelled lovely and it only needed a few squirts, which is great because it lasts longer than other bath oils I have tried. I spent about half-an-hour lying in the bath and I felt much more relaxed after just a few minutes. It was really effective at making the skin on my stomach feel more comfortable and I haven’t experienced as much itching, which has made me feel a little more comfortable. I’ve been quite conscious of the products that I have used during my pregnancy, but I feel confident in using the bath oil because of the natural ingredients. I like the packaging and fun design and I have been using it a few times a week- it’s definitely something that I am going to continue to use and recommend to my friends!
I was really pleased – my sister is quite selective with the make-up and beauty products that she uses on a daily basis, so this was high praise indeed, and I’m delighted that she is going to add this product to her weekly routine!
