- an anti-mosquito blend. I’ve had enough of seeing my poor Andrea come home from playschool or my in-laws’ dotted with angry, itchy mosquito bites!
- to soothe eczema flare-ups. My soap can help soothe skin over the long term by reducing irritation caused by harsh detergents and other external factors, but sometimes a more intensive treatment that is left in the skin may be required.
- to calm down and heal skin that’s itchy and inflamed from bug bites, diaper rash, minor cuts and nicks.
I’m still not entirely ready to work on moisturizers that need preservatives, so salves are next in line for the time being. These will generally be a simple blend of beeswax, carrier oils and essential oils–nothing else! I’m still formulating at the moment while I wait for my little round tins to arrive in the mail.
Do you have any favourite salves that you’d like to see an all-natural version of, or maybe a particular skin concern that needs addressing? Voice your ideas, opinions and concerns here and I’ll see what I can do. 🙂
