Tummy Rub for avoiding stretchmarks

Little Herbs


A beautiful massage oil which can help prevent stretch marks as your tummy expands, with the added bliss of a mood-enhancing aroma. 

Sensitive skin can strike during pregnancy, although you may never have suffered from it before.  All those active hormones can produce dry and flaky skin, sometimes because of an unexpected heat rash or maybe something you are using (such as a body lotion you’ve used for years that's now giving you hell). Tummy Rub can help!

Inevitably – because your tummy muscles and skin are stretching - that area is going to give you the most trouble. But don't neglect your breasts, hips, thighs, and bottom - they too can develop stretch marks.

Our Tummy Rub oil has been developed with delicious essential oils of green mandarin and rose geranium, known for their mood-balancing heart-lightening aromas and their ability to restore elasticity to stretched skin, working all the while on suppleness and stimulating blood circulation. Its delicious smell will make you feel a lot better at the first sniff!

The base for the essential oils is a highly nutritious mix of apricot kernel, sunflower seed and green tea seed oil oils - each easily absorbed into the deepest layers of the skin and full of nourishing Omega oils with vital vitamins A, E and D, all beneficial to healthy skin and often lost in modern diets. 

What our customers say:

"I really love this oil because it sinks in very quickly and has a great smell - but it also goes a long way so it's economical too." Elizabeth A., Stockton-on-Tees.

"This has really helped when the skin on my belly was feeling very stretched, dry and a bit uncomfortable. I used it after my daughter's birth too and I think it's made a difference to getting my tum back in shape." Mani M., London E17

Apple Island

Tummy Rub comes from Apple Island in Somerset. It is always a sunny day on Apple Island, because on Apple Island it only ever rains after bedtime and before getting-up time. It's a magical place full of wonderul characters - Babby Balm, Soothing Sal, Bobby Oil, Tommy Rub, Bessy Balm, Bertie Butter -  who have lots of adventures with the rabbits and other animals in among the flowers and along the riverbanks.
