I've made eczema blends using this synergy of essential oils for clients with much success, and decided to turn it into a body butter this season! The feedback has been great, so here it is...
German Chamomile is a wonderful anti-inflammatory, it is my gentle go-to for all things swollen, red or itchy - it is also a natural anti-histamine.
Lavender needs no introduction - it is ever so calming and soothing to dry skin, and helps to reduce irritation, itching, scaling, and dryness associated with eczema, helping to restore your skin to its natural, healthy condition.
Myrrh is the star here! It is a resin that oozes out of trees, meant to protect and heal the wound of the tree. It works in the same capacity on our skin. It has very powerful wound protective properties and is fabulous for skin cell regeneration.
Cajeput comes from the tea tree family and bears the same soothing and antibacterial qualities, in a more powerful punch.
Carrot Seed oil helps to illuminate and even out skin tones, providing moisture and relief from common skin irritations like eczema, dermatitis and acne
The process of combining the nourishing butters and supportive plant oils is labour intensive for this one, so I only make it in small batches and it sells out quickly! If it is sold out here, please reach out to me and I will whip up another batch for you.
Some of the precious oils used in this synergy are pricey than most, so that is reflected in the end price. A dab goes a long way, however!
