So, living in New York during the winter makes for very unhappy stretched lobes. Mine are 7/8 and not going any further, very happy with them. Very healthy lobes too. Out of curiosity, do you guys do any lobe massage and what do you use to keep them moisturized? I've used everything from jojoba, to vitamin E and emu oil. Currently, my favorite thing is Holey Butt'r. That stuff is jesus in a tin :) How about you guys?

I'm considering getting some of that Holey Butt'r stuff, but I usually use olive oil for my lobe massages.

I'm from NY too. Syracuse. My ears get a little dry in the winter. I have a bottle of emu oil that's almost gone, that I liked. I think I'm going to try jojoba oil next. I usually do an oil rub once a day when I put my jewelry in. I definitely notice a difference versus when I forget to do it for a few days.

NY winters cause mega dryness on mine. Organic jewelry and frequent lobe massage with holey butt'r works wonders though. Oh, and earmuffs! (can't get a hat over my mohawk and can't get a headband over my forehead subdermals haha)

I grew up in Wyoming and now live in Montana, I know cold. haha. My lobes have stressed a lot and I have learned to work with them, I really like the ear warmers my gramma gets me . . . lol

I always used to use emu oil but recently I re-discovered jojoba oil and that's all I use now. I tried holey butt'r but for some strange reason my lobes always get all itchy when I use it. They look healthy, but they feel weird!

I usually use vitamin e oil, but I've been using cocoa butter for the winter

I'm with Cale. I love vitamin e oil. I use a locally made emu oil and it's the best.

poor emus : (

ever think of trying jojoba oil? Extremely similar to emu oil without the loss of emu life!

I live in Wisconsin--our winters can get cooooold LOL!  I've really been liking Vit. E oil for scar tissue-reduction, and unrefined shea butter for moisturizing.    Its SO rich, you only need a little bit.  On a side note, its also awesome for stretching because it seems to provide more "slip" than a thinner oil like jojoba and coconut.  I just re-stretched from 4g-2g and it went very smoothly with the shea butter!
I get mine from "MadameKoiteh" on etsy, but its usually available at health food stores and many places online.  Just make sure you get unrefined, which is a tannish color and usually smells a tad earthy or smokey (it is made over fires), because it has more of the good stuff in it than refined (which is scentless and white, but not nearly as good for your skin.).

I switched because I felt bad about the emus. I only ever tried one 4oz bottle, but switched when it was done. :-/

I like emu oil the best.  I've also tried coconut oil and I don't like it and vitamin e and jojoba are okay.  Lots of people like bio oil, but it's a scam.  It's just mineral oil.

i've only ever used jojoba oil and it always makes my ears feel really nice and soft. I also used to have wicked bad cat ass, but the jojoba oil really really helped with it (that along with wearing exclusively glass) but i think i might try using something else next time i buy oil.

My partner used olive oil on me... Questionalble to say the least, and then used tea tree oil. :/ But I like vitamine E.
