Description
Did you know that if you suffer with eczema, you can turn to flowers for healing? The following are some flowers that you can use to make soothing ointments, masques, and bath soaks to help relieve the discomfort associated with eczema.To use these flowers as an ointment, cut them into small pieces and then crush them, then mix them with a pure plant oil like almond oil or coconut oil. Apply your ointment and let it sit on the skin for as long as you can. Just pick the flower petals off when you feel like it. Flower masques are made like ointments and they work pretty much like ointments, but you can use larger flowers in a masque (and lots of them) and leave them plastered to your itchy skin for about 30 minutes. Then, you’ll want to rinse your masque off. Sometimes, soaking in a warm bath with the following flower petals inside can be what’s needed to soothe red and sore skin.
