Now that the hot weather is here, I thought I would let you in on a little secret. If you are a woman like me, you may get some red areas in your groin or under your breasts. I do in the summer and hot sticky weather. I have a jar of Lulu's Thyme and Essentials healing wound salve. It has Lavender, Calendula, Rosemary, Aloe Vera Leaf, Yarrow, Beeswax, Jojoba oil, Olive oil, and Vitamin E oil.
Lavender has Vitamin A which has been used on skin to help with appearance, dry skin, scars, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne, psoriasis, and eczema.
Calendula has Vitamin A and C and has been used acne, scraped/itchy/inflamed skin, skin infections like athlete's foot. Calendula is used to alleviate itchy scalp in a hair rinse, to disinfect wounds, cold sores, swelling, sprains, eczema, psoriasis, and bug bites.
Rosemary is thought to help with collagen production and have antibiotic, astringent, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. Has been used on skin to exfoliate, moisturize, unclog pores, for acne, eczema, and other inflammatory conditions.
Aloe Vera Leaf; Do I need to say anything? We all know it's great for sunburns and soothing you skin.
Yarrow has been used as a skin tonic and antiseptic to prevent wound infection. This herb is thought to have antifungal and antibacterial properties.
Beeswax may provide a skin barrier thought to have humectant qualities and used for skin conditions like eczema, to moisturize and hydrate skin .
Jojoba oil and Olive oil commonly are used as moisturizers and as skin barriers.
What I love about Lulu's products is a little will always go a long way and for me they actually help!
