Skin rashes can be caused by so many things like poison ivy, prescription reactions, poor diet, the sun and reactions to topical products. It is often difficult to pin point the exact cause of a skin rash making them even more frustrating.
There are 2 essential oils in particular that I have seen provide instant and long term relief with regular use. Geranium and lavender essential oils, when combined, are extremely soothing for itchy, irritated skin.
Here is a simple aromatherapy recipe that I have seen yield exceptional results.
Pour the aloe gel in a 1 ounce pump or spray bottle. Then add the lavender and geranium essential oil drops. Put your lid on and give it a good shake. Apply daily when you have flair ups or itchiness.
If you are preparing this for a child between 6 months and 2 years of age, reduce the geranium and lavender essential oils drops to 1 of each. For children 2 to 6 years of age, use 2 drops each of the lavender and geranium. For children under 6 months of age, check out our Coconut Body Balm. It doesn’t contain any essential oils and is safe for babies.
