Anyone tell me what to use Apricot Oil for? A friend recommended but wasn't really listening??
I can't say I've heard what it would be useful for, but most people recommending oils during pregnancy say they are to help reduce the appearance of stretch marks?
[quote:2saq2ck8]Apricot oil is pressed from the kernels of the Prunus armeniaca (apricot). The kernels have an oil content of 40-50%. The oil is similar to almond oil and peach oil, both of which are also extracted from the kernels of the respective fruit. Apricot oil is much cheaper than almond oil, and is used similarly in cosmetics to soften skin. It is sometimes added (fraudulently) to genuine almond oil and used in the manufacture of soaps, cold creams and other preparations of the perfumery trade.Specifically, apricot oil can be used on the scalp to improve its condition.[/quote:2saq2ck8]
A friend said its to rub between my bits below?? Not sure as have googled but nothing is coming up??
id say maybe it was almond oil, thats what was recommend to me
sounds like she was talking about a
Perenial massage, I only found out about this a month or so
ago from a friend and thought she was pulling my leg!!
Google it, there is loads of info, basically it is massaging
the perenial muscle which is between the vagina and back passage,
with an oil (my friend used vegitable oil).
It is supposed to help prevent tearing as massaging is supposed
to make muscle more supple and stretchy...
When are you meant to start doing this massage??
[color=indigo:vmiporu4]As far as I know you're supposed to do this from week 34 onwards. It's supposed to help prevent / minimise tearing, though how to manage it with a huge bump in the way I have no idea...[/color:vmiporu4]
