Can be applied by yourself or with a partner. Massage 3-4 times a week for 5-10 minutes, from the 34th week of pregnancy. Best used after first bathing in warm water and making sure the bladder is empty. Settle into a relaxed, comfortable position. Moisten the thumb (or index finger if your partner is massaging) with Perineum Massage Oil and glide gently over the tissues, ensuring the massage is painless. Insert the finger into the vagina to around the second finger joint. Massage rhythmically with a light touch on the vaginal wall in a rotating movement, like the hand of a clock moving back and forth from 3 to 9. With each massage the tissues and muscles will feel more relaxed and softer, so that the length of the massage can be increased. Massage the perineum until a light tingling can be felt, then massage the tissue between the vagina and anus gently between the thumb and middle fingers. After massage excess oil can be removed by washing in warm water. If you have any concerns about perineal massage, please consult your midwife or doctor.
WARNING: Always read the label and always follow the specific product directions for use.

Q. Why do you use seed and nut oils in your products?
Plants oils, derived from seeds, nuts and fruits, gently care for and nourish your skin. Unlike petroleum-based mineral oils, plant oils help support and balance your skin’s moisture and oxygen levels and most closely match your skin’s natural make up. Your body can easily use the fatty acids and beneficial properties within each oil to stay beautiful and healthy.
