Sometimes I get asked with being a massage therapist , what is good for Eczema? I always say Lavender Oil topped with Sudocrem. You probably think this is a odd combination but it works! I used to do this for my son when he was a baby as he suffered with this quite alot and it worked every time and was better than any medication prescribed by the doctor.
Apply a few drops of the oil onto specified area, rub in then apply Sudocrem
on top to seal in the oil. Do this every night before bed until healed.
Lavender is the most versatile, with a spread of properties ranging from analgesic, via antidepressant, antiseptic, bactericidal and decongestant, to insect repellent, and sedative.
Lavender is best know as calming, soothing and above all balancing.
This essential oil, like most others, is usually used mixed with a base or carrier oil like sweet almond, grapeseed, jojoba, avocado and others, unless it is for your bath, when you can simply add a few drops in your bath water. Use this oil for a pleasant fragrance or aromatherapy with an oil burner or vaporiser. In aromatherapy, it is often used to combat depression, stress, and fatigue.
