Here is a a potent recipe for a DIY stretch mark cream that successfully fights the stretch marks as well as cellulite. Easy to be prepared, completely natural and toxin-free.

Many women struggle every day to get rid of stretch marks. Very often this struggle turns out to be pointless and the results most women get are not always the expected ones. This happens with most of the creams that flood the market.

Advertisements are always great, but the final result is often very poor. It is time to use the nature to fight for you once again.


For the preparation you will need:

1/4 cup cocoa butter (where to buy)

1/4 olive oil,

1 tbsp natural raw honey (where to buy) and

3-4 drops lavender oil (where to buy)

Melt the cocoa butter over a hot water bath. Add the same amount of olive oil. Add 1 tbsp of honey and 3-4 drops of lavender oil.

Then leave the mixture to cool down and put it in the freezer fo 15-20 minutes. Your DIY stretch mark cream is ready! Easy peasy! Isn’t it?

You can keep it in a glass jar afterwards.

How to Use It:

Use it every morning and every evening.

The mixture smells wonderful, and the ingredients will do wonders to your skin.

Why this stretch mark cream is good for you:

The honey has a number of properties that favorably affect the body. It is even suggested by surgeons to treat marks and scars.

Lavender helps cell regeneration and nourishes the skin significantly.

Olive oil also successfully flattens unpleasant stretch marks as well as acne scars (here is a recipe for an effective homemade acne spots treatment).

Cocoa butter makes the skin shiny, smooths wrinkles and prevents new stretch marks to appear on the skin.

Note: To be sure that you will certainly get rid of stretch marks while using this cream, eat nuts and seeds because they contain zinc. Also, drinking lots of water and keeping the skin hydrated is very important. This helps your skin maintain elasticity, thereby makes its layers less prone to tearing.

It is so easy to prepare this multi-functional cream is and is completely natural and toxin-free.

    Sorry, I just noticed that the ingredient mentioned Cocoa Butter but the methods described coconut oil. Are they inter-changeable?

    Is it cocoa butter or coconut oil?

  4. Dana / December 6, 2014 at 2:43 pm / Reply

    Wait, I’m confused too. Cocoa butter or coconut oil? I have coconut oil, so I need to know if I have to go out and get cocoa butter.

    • Kate / December 10, 2014 at 6:43 pm / Reply

      Hi Dana,

      It’s cocoa butter. It is highly nourishing and penetrates to the lower epidermis of the skin.

    can the cocoa butter be replaced with shea butter?

    • Kate / December 20, 2014 at 1:46 pm / Reply

      I’ve heard that shea butter (just like cocoa butter) is one of the best ingredients for a stretch mark treatment, but I haven’t tried it… sorry I don’t have a better advice :)

  10. pravina / December 22, 2014 at 2:27 am / Reply

    Well shea butter is good aswell, it works the same like cocoa butter.
    Its also super good for people with a very dry skin.

    Hello!
    I made this strech mark cream, but it’s really really green and not solid… I guess I put too much Olive oil in it (?) “1/4 olive oil” means 1/4 cup, right? Thanks for the answer!

  12. Alana / January 23, 2015 at 7:47 am / Reply

    The list of ingredients say “1 tbsp raw honey” HOWEVER when explained in the steps to make it it indicates “1 teaspoon”. Which is it? 1 tablespoon or 1 teaspoon?

    • Kate / January 23, 2015 at 9:57 am / Reply

      Hi Alana,

      It’s one tablespoon

  13. Jacki / February 3, 2015 at 7:10 am / Reply

    Was so excited to find this but I’m allergic to lavender :( is there anything else I could use that would have the same benefits?

    • Rebecca / February 8, 2015 at 9:49 pm / Reply

      Rosehip oil is a miracle worker when it comes to scars. You might give that a try instead of lavender.

  16. Merry R. Machuo / February 18, 2015 at 6:43 pm / Reply

    Hi there,I just wanted to know where else besides the internet can I get the Cocoa Butter and also the Natural Raw Honey,can they by any chance be found at the supermarkets or…?? Where do I find these two ingredients?

  17. Melissa / February 19, 2015 at 7:26 am / Reply

    Hello! this is kinda a stupid question, but what do you mean by melting the butter over a hot water bath? Do you mean mix it with water or just holding the butter over it?

    • Kate / February 22, 2015 at 8:06 pm / Reply

      Hey Melissa,

      You should use a heatproof bowl. Suspend the bowl over the simmering water, Heat the butter, stirring regularly, until completely melted, then remove from the heat.

    Does this help with old stretch marks? I’ve had stretch marks since I was twelve (I’m 22 now) so I wonder if it’s not already too late to do something about it?

  19. Heather / March 12, 2015 at 1:10 am / Reply

    I’m stumped. No idea what I did wrong. I followed the directions exactly but mine is not solidifying. I made it almost 3 hours ago and it’s still liquid. Any insight?

  20. Heather / March 12, 2015 at 1:17 am / Reply

    I made this about 3 hours ago, I followed the directions exactly, however mine is still in liquid form. Any insite as to what I did wrong or why it won’t solidify?

    I had the worst stretch marks when I got pregnant. I used the “best” commercial shea and cocoa butter creams, but they didn’t seem to help at all preventatively, however, they were also not 100% natural (because they were comercial) so, my question is, do you think, with switching to all natural ingredients and doing the cream myself, that I may be able to reverse the effects of even old stretch marks?

  22. Katherine / March 17, 2015 at 8:46 pm / Reply

    how much water are you suppose to use.

  23. alexandrA / April 4, 2015 at 8:06 pm / Reply

    I’ve tried this but the final result doesn’t look like a cream at all,it’s too liquid. Is it supposed to look like this? I did put the correct quantity of every ingredient.

      Alexandra,
      put into the freezer after method for 15-20 minutes.:)

    how do you keep it from separating out?

  25. Carole / April 10, 2015 at 10:47 pm / Reply

    Have any of you tried emu oil for stretch marks? It worked great for me to keep a burn from scarring, and it’s said to help prevent and reduce stretch marks too. I believe you could replace the olive oil with emu oil, as it too is a “carrier” oil.

    Does anyone know if you can use it while pregnant &/or breastfeeding?

  27. susanne / April 23, 2015 at 6:54 pm / Reply

    Sorry folks, but there is nothing that will take away your stretch marks or scars. This may lighten your scars, but not get rid of them.

      Amen!

    This might be a dumb question, but have you noticed the oil staining your clothes when you apply it? I’m a little worried about oil marks, since it takes forever for oil to fully soak in to skin!

    Hello!
    Can I use plastic jar or glass jar is required for the maintenance?

    Is there a specific type of Olive Oil needed?

  31. Becca / June 30, 2015 at 11:04 pm / Reply

    The only way to remove stretch marks is with exfoliation. The skin has been stretched and ripped. This cannot be repaired. The skin has to be removed so that the new skin beneath can replace it, just like a wrinkle. You can do this with retinol, alpha hydroxy or other even peels made for acne prone skin have been shown to improve stretch marks. You can also have micodemabrasion done in a dermatologists office which has also been proven to be effective. You cannot remove them with a moisturizer or oil, sorry.

    Hey guys I’ve found that once it’s all cooled if you blend it to mix all the ingredients it comes together better and solidifies. I made mine day before yesterday and found it was separating so I thought to maybe run it in my magic bullet to mix it up…and that did the trick now it’s just like a commercial body butter.

  33. Maria / August 20, 2015 at 4:01 am / Reply

    I just made this a few hrs ago this and it’s liquid, it doesn’t resemble a cream at all. I ordered coco butter, it came in blocks so I used a box shredder to get 1/4 cup. Did I do something wrong? Please help!

    • Kate / August 20, 2015 at 4:15 pm / Reply

      Hey Maria,

      Put it in the freezer after method for 15-20 minutes.

    Wow! So great! I’ve not known that I can make a treatment for stretch mark by myself. Thank you so much for your wonderful recipe. I hope that it will be effective for me as it works for you. And I wonder how long we can keep this blend. Looking for your reply and more posts.
