Eczema herbal remedies can provide soothing relief and you may find that you already have some of the products around your home. For example, lavender oil, which is used for a variety of ailments and conditions, is often used to provide relief from eczema.
Sometimes, the skin can crack and blister and so if you want to use lavender oil be sure and mix it with a carrier oil, such as olive oil, grapeseed oil, or almond oil. This is because the lavender oil may sting the skin where it is cracked. Also, when mixing pure essential oils with carrier oils, only mix the amount you will use in a short period of time as the oils can turn rancid once they are mixed.
Eczema is a condition of the skin and usually produces a dry, itchy rash. While it can appear anywhere on the body, it is prevalent on the face, hands, feet, and the knees. Eczema can become serious when the affected area gets infected. Although there is no cure for the condition, it can be effectively managed by keeping the skin moist and avoiding scratching the affected area. Diet is also a factor in managing eczema.
While there are a variety of lotions and creams on the market that are used to treat eczema, many people prefer to use eczema herbal remedies to treat the condition. Look for lotions, creams, or gels that contain chamomile for soothing relief from eczema.
Oatmeal is another favorite home remedy for eczema. Look for an oatmeal bar that contains chamomile as well when treating itchy, red skin suffering from eczema. Some people even use colloidal oatmeal in their bath water but if you do this be sure and rinse well after bathing because any oatmeal left on your skin could be irritating when it dries. You will likely find that you have the ingredients in your cabinet to make many of the eczema herbal remedies discussed here.
