We would suggest the following:
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Tea Tree Essential Oil
Application – Buy a base oil: Jojoba is best for this. If you have 20ml of base oil, add half the amount of Essential Oil drops. That gives you 10 drops. In this case, you will add 6 drops of Lavender and 4 drops of Tea Tree. Apply the mixture over the affected area, as required. Especially effective after a bath.
** A patch test is required – 1 drop of aromatherapy oil to 4 drops of base oil. Apply a coin size amount to a patch of skin on the inner arm **
If sensitivity occurs, apply more base oil to soothe the area. Possibly avoid use for a further 10 days. If you wish to continue, dilute to ¼ of the original amount and test on a small area of skin. If there is no further reaction, continue with that dosage.
** Oils are for external use only and must be blended with a carrier oil. Always avoid the eyes, ears and nose **
** Lavender is the safest of oils, if on a rare occasion you react, apply more base oil to the skin to soothe it and dilute the massage blend with more base oil **
** Tea Tree – Avoid up to the age of 5. Can irritate the skin and be very drying on its own, must be blended **
