    Hi Joannek,

    I'm 20 wks pregnant now and have like a winter itch because of this currently dry weather. At the moment I use Palmers cream every night and in the mornings before I go to work and I itch more in the evenings. I know my grandma used to just boil the brown sugar bars and when cooled down abit pour over our bodies and rinse afterwards.

    Is the oil and sugar thing ok to use for pregnant women? I like the idea of the oil too to keep our skin smooth - if ok to use how much of the oil to use in militres if I use one bar of brown sugar?

    it's so safe it can be eaten, so i'd think it'd be very safe to put on your skin. can't tell you exactly how much oil to put in one bar of sugar, just melt the sugar, might need to add a little water. then when it's melt thru, remove from heat. let cool, and add oil, so the sugar is fully submerged. then stir well.

    since you're pregnant, i wouldn't suggest you to use any essential oils, though.

    On a similar topic, someone gave me a tube of Mustela Emollient Cream for dry skin with atopic tendency. Any idea if this cream can be used as a normal moisturizer in this dry weather for a six-month old or for my 3-year-old?

    try look for fonnie at www.fonnie.com.hk. she is a good therapist. i myself took the 2-year course there. I used brown sugar on myself, it did not work on me. i used apricot oil and jojoba alternatively on my baby

    hi joannek, engee and all, what i did with that rock hard sugar i melt it again and this time i add little water in it and oil offcourse. This time it was much better and easy to use but still there was no formation of crystals as joannek said. But it worked well. Engee may be you can also try like that.
