When I first joined here I posted up a concern about a random spot issue in a delicate area that just would not go away.
I have recently been really getting into the benefits of bath salts with essential oils - namely Himalayan pink salt for it's detox and mineral properties, and in an attempt to save money decided to make my own bath products with the intention of distributing as Christmas presents, I decided to also have a go at candle making to include a nice little votive candle in my home made gift packs, although that was not as easy as I had thought it would be to make!
Anyway going off track a little bit since the salts haven't done anything to help with the skin complaint...
At the weekend my partner and myself had a slight mishap and I looked up on making a little lotion for our injuries - hoping to just be able to use some of the stuff I had accumulated for my experimental bath products and candles.
My salve was tweaked slightly because I was missing some ingredients from the interweb recipe and I researched a little bit about the eczema and made sure to use oils that would be OK on that (due to it also being on his busted knee)
So not really thinking it would do too much but because I ended up with rather a lot of salve, I decided to give it a go on my spots at the same time as my shoulder injury and also plastered it all over his eczema!
And after two days use my spots finally look like they are healing - they look better than they have ever looked since they turned up!
Although I will caveat that it is still early days as only day two and the spots have not gone away yet (just less bumpy and red) even my partners ezcema looked less inflamed so I am feeling rather hopeful and a tad pleased with myself!
Will update on if it actually did work and how long it took to clear up if it did work
