Today we review Earth Mama Belly Oil. Previously known as Earth Mama Angel Baby’s Natural Stretch Oil, this blend of oils helps to moisturize and comfort your growing belly during pregnancy. It can also be used on the rest of your body to help with stretch marks on your hips, breasts, and thighs. With a light scent, this should also not affect mothers suffering from morning sickness.

How Do You Use Earth Mama Belly Oil?
The manufacturer suggests massaging generous amount of this oil to all areas of your body that expand with pregnancy. It is not specified, however, exactly how much the manufacturer considers a generous amount, and there is not daily amount listed. It is unclear whether this oil should be massaged once a day, or more often.
This oil is available in both a 1 ounce size and a 4 ounce size bottle. The 1 ounce bottle costs $5.99, and 4 ounces costs $14.99. This is double the price when compared to other oils we have seen to help prevent stretch marks. Shipping on orders under $49 cost an additional $4.95 for flat rate shipping, while purchases over $49 receive free shipping.
Is There a Guarantee?
Unfortunately, this manufacturer offers no money-back guarantee. Even their return policy is extremely strict. They only accept returns of unopened, new products, and the returns must be made within 15 days. Unless the problem was the manufacturer’s error, you will not receive the shipping costs in your refund. In order to start the refund process, you must send an email to the manufacturer and await a response with instructions on how to send back your return.
The Conclusion of Our Earth Mama Belly Oil Review
There are a few things we liked about Earth Mama Belly Oil. Overall, the ingredients are mostly common found ingredients in products to help prevent the look of stretch marks. Also, the manufacturer does offer free shipping on orders over $49.
Unfortunately, there are many things we did not like about this product. First off, it has calendula oil, which has been shown to start premature labor. The manufacturer also did not state how often or exactly how much oil to use to see the best results. Also, the price of this oil is double some of the other products we have seen on the market. Lastly, there is no money back guarantee, and the return policy offered by the manufacturer does not allow for the trial of this product to see if it will actually help prevent stretch marks during pregnancy. For these reasons, we cannot recommend this oil.
