Herbal Skin Care: Best Natural Remedies
Natural, organic skin care oils, body butters, and herbal remedies can replace most of the cosmetic and pharmaceuticals skin care products we buy and do a better job of protecting and healing skin. The skin is the largest organ of the body. It is the first line of defense, and is responsible for elimination of fully one quarter of the body's toxins. Conditions such as eczema ,
and acne reflect imbalance in the body as a whole.
Rashes from poison ivy, sunburns,
flea and insect bites, and just about any skin problem caused by external agents can benefit from many of these herbal treatments as well.
Body Care Oils & Body Butters
All natural body care with vegatable, nut and seed oils. Use them alone or as carrier oils for aromatherapy.
Skin Food - Culinary Oils used for Skin Care
Many oils are beneficial for both topical and internal applications and make
a good choice for skin disorders such as psoriasis and eczema. Regenerating and
sensual herbal oils offer treatment for sun damaged or aged skin. Use as stand alone treatments
or combined with other carrier oils and essential oils for spa quality skin care
at homemade prices.
Herbal Oils and Salves
Herbal infused oils are handcrafted from these healing herbs for beautiful and healthy skin.
Herbal Skin Washes and Bath Blends
Hydrotherapy - water based therapies are popular skin treatments because
they work. Temperature is also an important factor. Know when to use cool compress
vs heat, ice vs fire. In cases of poor circulation tepid or lukewarm temperatures
can be best.
An infusion of herbal tea can be used in skin healing washes, compresses,
and poultices, and bath bags is one of the simple yet powerful ways to unleashes
the healing virtues of plants.
Don't overlook the simplest and cheapest bath additives: mineral salts and baking soda and vinegar. These staples are relatively inexpensive to keep on hand, and you will miss them if you run out.
These old country remedies work better than an fancy spa concoctions. Pour them in a fancy bottle and tie it up with a ribbon and no one will be the wiser.
