I am a small framed woman. When I found out that I was pregnant, I immediately began to worry about getting stretch marks. I went to our local health food store and asked the owner what to do. She told me to try orange oil mixed with vitamin E oil. I used a dropper and mixed the two in my hands and rubbed this mixture all over my body. I gained 45 pounds and I DIDN'T GET ONE STRETCH MARK!! This really works, and it smells good too!
