Stretch Marks - BY BARBARA B
I just saw your website and was browsing Beauty Recipes and saw the comment on Stretch Marks.
A family member told me years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter to rub pure coco butter twice daily over my stomach and breasts. When my daughter was born, there were no stretch marks at all on my stomach. Now in my fifties, I've been passing this information on to my daughter, daughters of friends and anyone I knew who was pregnant. My daughter now has 3 sons and no stretch marks. But once you have stretch marks it is difficult to get rid of. The key is prevention.
Some seemed skeptical but they did it and no stretch marks. It really works. I use to buy the Hersheys coco butter directly from a pharmacy.
Mustard Plaster - JOHN S
Hi, here's an old fashioned remedy that I use to relieve my arthritis pains. I make what you call a mustard plaster. To do this you need to mix together 2 parts flour with 1 part mustard powder, then add some water to make a paste. Spread it on a clean cloth of some sort, fold it in half and press against the skin. Don't put the salve directly on the skin since it can burn. You can also use this to loosen phlegm or for sore muscles. Thanks for the site!
