Mother's Special Blend has done so much to make my pregnancy more comfortable -- out of everything I've bought for pregnancy, this product is the one I'd consider most essential. I think I would rather travel without my toothbrush than without this. I'm starting my third trimester, and I use the oil every night before I go to sleep. Sometimes I use it in the morning as well, or after showering or swimming. As long as I use it regularly, I've experienced no itching as I've expanded, which is saying something -- I have sensitive skin prone to itchiness, and even missing one day of using this oil leaves me scratching my belly. It has also totally solved the major breast irritation and soreness I was experiencing before I purchased this. My skin is in such good shape that I intend to use it postpartum as well. The fact that it's an oil, rather than a cream or salve, is a huge benefit. It's easy to spread quickly over a large area -- which is increasingly important! -- and doesn't require any rubbing over sensitive skin. I have no problems whatsoever with the smell. I think it's nice, but it's very subtle and doesn't stick around. It is an oil so I won't be surprised or disappointed if it stains clothing, but that somehow hasn't happened to me at all.

I know that the big question, for many women, will be whether it prevents stretch marks. When I was first shopping around, this was my main criteria, so I invested in two salves that had the highest online reviews for stretch mark prevention. They were much more expensive than this, took more time to apply, and weren't nearly as soothing. I bought the Mother's Special Blend kind of on a whim at my natural foods store, and was surprised when I liked it so much better than the rest. This oil has done so much to keep me comfortable during pregnancy that I would use it even if it did nothing to prevent stretch marks. That being said, I think it definitely helps a lot, and may even prevent them entirely if you use it enough. I've already developed a few stretch marks, but I know that I'm genetically prone to stretch marks and they're in areas where I wasn't using the oil thickly or regularly. I know that I have zero stretch marks where I have used the oil consistently. But I still have a few months left to go.

Are there other body oils out there that might do just as much? I really can't say. I have tried my former standby body lotions while travelling a couple of times, and these were totally ineffective in helping with itching. I'll probably try other oils when I run out of my current bottle of Mother's Special Blend, just to see if there's something cheaper, but I won't experiment for very long. I am extremely satisfied with this product and the price I paid for it, especially considering how much you get. I'll bet my current bottle will last from the beginning of my second trimester until halfway through my third trimester, and I apply liberally.

I hope my review is helpful. I highly recommend this product to all pregnant women.

I'm annoyed by those pregnant women who write raving reviews in when they are in their 1st/2nd trimester when you don't really get stretch marks. i'm 3 wks away from delivery and have been using this everyday and still got stretch marks. they are very faint and very low but i still got them. i will say that my belly doesn't itch at all which is why i give it 3 stars. personally i think getting stretch marks has to do with how much weight you gain. if you gain a lot expect stretch marks. if you don't gain as much and are very skinny to begin with your skin doesn't have much room to stretch.

    This oil blend is wonderful for mothers to be. Goes on smoothly and absorbs quickly into the skin so it won't leave oil or grease on clothing. Doesn't have an added fragrance which I like. I will be buying this again.

            My sister-in-law used this product when she was pregnant and didn't get any stretch marks. My weight tends to fluctuate so I use it to prevent my stretch marks from getting worse and it helps tremendously. I've used other products and nothing works like this one. I highly recommend it.

            This product is good loved it at first...made my skin feel real soft...but after awhile I started noticing that my clothes had a awful scent to it. So I would suggest you use clothes that you dont mind throwing out after for example my pregnancy.

                    Comments about Mother's Special Blend All Natural Skin Toning Oil, 8 fl oz:

                    Love this stuff. During the winter I use it all over after a shower. During the summer just on my legs and arms. Absorbs quickly, non-greasy. My skin has never been in better shape. I used to have oily skin and would clean with the anti-acne cleansers and use light lotion only to dry out and still have breakouts on my body. After reading about overdrying and how it can exacerbate breakouts, I took a simpler approach. Cleanse with a mild soap and use this oil. I no longer have breakouts (and I workout daily) and my skin is so soft and smooth. I also like that it does not have an overpowering smell (fades quickly) that clashes with my perfume and is natural.
