7 Essential Oils that Eliminate Stretch Marks

Get any of these oils at Pure Path Essential Oils

1. Lemon

Lemon is one of the most useful essential oils to get rid of stretch marks. It can fight damage caused by free radicals in your skin, and lemon essential oil prevents the death of cells that produce collagen and keratin. Collagen and keratin are the building blocks of your skin.

2. Patchouli

Antioxidants fight against skin damage caused by free radicals while encouraging collagen synthesis. Patchouli essential oil contains an abundance of antioxidants, which is why it is a great choice for stretch marks. For maximum benefits, try combining with another essential oil on this list.

3. Lavender

If you have a wound on your skin, lavender essential oil has impressive wound healing abilities. Lavender increases collagen production and helps form granulation tissue. This tissue forms over raw, broken skin as your body recovers from a wound. You can use lavender to help heal new stretch marks.

Try mixing lavender essential oil with vitamin E oil. Then, rub it over the area with the undesired stretch marks.

4. Jasmine

Jasmine is one of the essential oils that are fantastic to combat dry skin and balance the oils within the skin. Jasmine essential oil can help to make your skin more elastic, reduce stretch marks, and get rid of scars.

5. Neroli Oil

Also known as bitter orange tree oil, neroli oil is an oil commonly used in folk medicine to improve and lighten the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Neroli oil contains antioxidants that help your skin regenerate and heal. Both of those properties are perfect for getting rid of stretch marks!

Neroli oil mixes well with almond oil if you want to use it as a massage oil.

6. Rosehip Oil

Rosehip essential oil comes from the seeds of a rose bush, and it is a powerful oil that is full of vitamins and antioxidants. These vitamins and antioxidants aid your skin during the regeneration process.

Using rosehip oil can reduce the prominence of stretch marks on your body. Try combining rosehip with a carrier oil and using it as a massage oil over the area daily.

7. Rosemary

Aside from cognitive functions, rosemary also assists the regeneration process of your skin as it heals from wounds. Rosemary can improve the elasticity of your skin and reduce stretch marks on your body.

You can mix rosemary and other essential oils for the ultimate stretch mark combating massage oil. Use it two to three times per day.

Denise used TriLASTIN-SR to get rid of older pregnancy stretch marks

Essential Oils & Home Remedies are best used early when your stretch marks are still red, purple, pink, or brown but,

Once your stretch marks are more than 6 weeks old or become white, silver or a lighter shade than your skin… You'll need to use a more powerful stretch mark treatment like TriLASTIN-SR

TriLASTIN-SR is used by Dermatologist

To Prevent Stretch Marks,

stretch mark home remedies

Increase the elasticity of your skin so your skin can stretch out more in case you do get pregnant or gain lots of weight so you won't get stretch marks.

6 Ways to Increase Skin Elasticity

  1. Use any lotions, oils or creams made for getting rid of stretch marks like Cocoa Butter or TriLASTIN-SR to keep your skin more elastic.
  2. Supplementing with or eating a diet high in Vitamin A, C, E, & zinc will increase the strength and elasticity of the collagen within your skin.
  3. Eating foods containing essential fatty acids like vegetables, fish & vegetable oils help promote good skin care.
  4. Drinking water keeps your skin hydrated, soft & flexible and rushes vitamins to your skin for speedy healing to remove & prevent stretch marks.
  5. Stay out of the sun for long periods of time because sunlight on new stretch mark scars can make them permanent.
  6. If you are planning on become pregnant… Start preparing your skin with cocoa butter but Consult your doctor first as lotions can contain ingredients that may be passed to your unborn baby or into breast milk.

Hello, you should try herbal toning soap and creams. It is very safe as it doesn't have chemicals in them and it doesn't make you dark, it will glow your skin up evenly. I get mine at this skincare page on Instagram, @victoriabeautyskincare. She sells organic products for dark spots, stretch mark, acne, hyper-pigmentation. Try them out and thank me later. Tell her Anita referred you.

My wife's been using it now for 3 months and it might have lightened her pregnancy stretchmarks but they haven't disappeared. She was recommended this product by her dermatologist.

I've been using dermelastic serum for a couple weeks so far and it's been working fairly well. I've noticed my stretch marks are going from a pinkish color to the same tone as my normal skin. They are still there but just harder to make out. I'm going to continue on with this product as it shows promise.

I'm 18. I have stretch marks not from pregnancy and I'm not fat at all, I just grew really fast. I've had stretchmarks for about 4 yrs until I started doing something about them. I initially used palmers cocoa butter but that didn't work. Dermelastic Serum lightened my stretchmarks from years ago and now I feel comfortable wearing a bikini !!!!

I have had three kids and as you can imagine quite a bit of stretch marks. Dermelastic Serum seems to help them fade and is leaves skin smooth. I cannot wait to see final results.

Recently I started to use dermelastic serum on my second pregnancy a month before I delivered. I was starting to get more and more stretch marks so I used this twice a day massaging for at least 1-3 minutes. I didn't get any new stretch marks and now after 4 months they are so much lighter. I wish I took pictures but I didn't. A bottle last me a month and I have to use it on my thighs stomach and both hips. Definitely buy!!

I just had my third baby and diabetes with all of them. A lot of weight was gained. A lot of weight was lost. Dermelastic Serum helped reduce some of the scars and made me feel less self conscious. It sounds silly buy I placed this product on my arms and legs where the stretch marks were most visiable and you can nearly see them now. So great.

i have been losing weight using a detox program and alot of green drinks. Yes, you do get stretch marks when you lose weight. I wanted something to help diminish my stretch marks and imperfections and I found 2 things that work. (1) Get a giant scrubber thingy to use in the shower, and really brush the stretch marks hard. This is important. (2) After the shower, I have been applying the Somaluxe Stretch Mark Treatment (by Lady Soma) and it has really helped. ive only been using for a week and i already see results.

I had my son a year ago & my pregnancy left horrible stretch marks on my hips that I was so embarrassed of. They were the deep purple ones that looked like a tiger just clawed at my side. I regret not getting this sooner. I have been using dermelastic Serum for only a week & I see a difference already. The stretch marks are lighter & less deep in my skin. Also there apears to be less stretch marks! This stuff is a life saver. I highly recommend buying this & im definitely

This is good to know. I have tried everything from Burt’s Bees but way to oily. I’ve tried every product too at Wholefoods almost. I do the at home facial with the Riiviva Microdermabrasion tool for my acne scarring and it’s terrific. It is here at

Do you have any recommendations as to what avenue to take for moisture without all the oily residue that happens when I use oils. Thanks

July 12, 2012


I'm not saying I look great because I can and will look better,but I look the best that I ever have. I have been dating this guy for almost 2 years and he has always pushed me about going to the gym I know he just wants what is best, I'm having a hard time losing the belly hips and inner thighs and the arms. I have recently been very sick and yet I feel I'm letting him down because I'm always feeling like I'm not good enough I really need help on how to lose these areas without a high intense work out due to not being able to handle that. please advise me.

hi im 14 and im 256lbs how much pounds could i loose within 18 days and how to make my but firm & to loose my stomach fat because i've done sit ups ect and my ab mucles are strong i just need to loose the stomach fat

July 08, 2012


The best way I have gotten rid of belly fat is to go on a NO carb diet for 2weeks & then to integrate healthy carbs (fruit) back into the diet slowly.

April 19, 2013


That's the dumbest advice I've ever read in my life! No carbs during two weeks?? You'll be stressed and feeling down all the time. You don't know the benefits of carbs. The trick is to calculate your daily carbs and watch what you eat and not eat more than you're supposed to.

Hello Adrian! I am currently in my first trimester of my second pregnancy. Being that I was very fit and young with my first pregnancy, I did not gain much fat and managed to keep my body toned. However, this pregnancy is much different. Since I am less active and at risk for more stretch marks, cellulite, and flabby skin I have decided to try some of your exercises. I am taking pictures constantly to keep track of how my body changes. Hopefully after I have the baby your workouts will pay off and I will be able to wear a bikini again. Your videos and advice is great, the best I have found so far on the internet!! Im looking forward to my new "look good naked" body :)

I'm 16. I puffed up quite a bit from medical treatment for certain thing. I lost 30 pounds and still trying to lose more. It's been 1 to 1 1/2 years I think from when I started to puff up.. What do recommend? The stretch marks are all around my abdomen and around my muffin to the back. I have them on the back of my legs and arms. Their all a red-ish/purple-ish color, except for the ones on my thighs, their smaller less noticeable and white. I've been using cocoa butter and taking Vitamin E, but summer's here and I need a faster and inexpensive solution. Any reccomendations?

May 25, 2012


100% Cocoa Butter STICKS are all you need, not lotions because they are not 100%. The stretch marks can even be old. You can get the sticks at Publix, maybe Walmart, some beauty stores. They are about $2 a stick. Use it as often as possible, and they will go away. It also works on scars and shallow wrinkles.
