    Natural, organic skin care 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 , psoriasis, and acne reflect imbalance in the body as a whole.Rashes

    from poison ivy,sunburns, burns, cuts, flea and insect bites, and just about any skin problem caused by external agents can benefit from many of these herbal treatments as well.


    Herbal treatments for Skin Care



    • Skin Care Oils Cold pressed almond, apricot, jojoba, and hazelnut oilsare just a few out of the many natural vegetable oils valued in skin care. These oils are used to relieve dry skin, itching, soreness and inflammation and are also used in aromatherapy blends as lightly scented carrier oils.
    • Essential oils used in aromatherapy play an important role in skin care. You can get the best value by buying only the best quality, pure essential oils because it takes only a few drops per application to make your own personal care body products. When fatty oils such as nut
    • and seed oils are mixed with essential oils, each can penetrate the skin more deeply.
    • Other natural herbal oils used in skin care have stronger, but pleasant scents and are often
    • used as a stand alone application for skin care. They are often highly concentrated and are applied lightly a few drops at a time. These include astringents like rose oil and pomegranate
    • oilused in facial care to combat wrinkles. Sea buckthornand argan oilsare two potent oils used to specifically to treat problematic skin conditions.Tamanu oilis one of the richest body oils you can use and has such a plethora of healing properties that it truly has to be tried to
    • be believed. Coconut and hemp seed oils are two good examples of oils that have both culinary and skin care uses.
    • Rich, rejuvenating body butters can be made by creaming shea butteror, Cocoa Butter with any of the vegetable oils mentioned here. These make amazing creams for feet, elbows and any other problem areas.
    • Herbal infused oils are made by soaking healing herbs in a base oil, most often olive oil. They are considered some of the strongest healing oils for serious skin damage and serve as the base for making healing salves, creams and ointments. Leading the list of healing herbal oils
    • arecomfrey, calendula, St. Johns wort, and rosemary oils.
    • Herbs can be employed as skin washes and used in baths to improve skin tone. Lavender, soapwort, rose petals and oatmeal are just some of the many choices. Also don't forget two of the cheapest and most effective bath additives are vinegar and baking soda.
    • Healing from the inside out: Drinking detoxifying herbal teas is an important part of skin care. Dandelion, burdock and sarsaparilla all three of the best known blood purifying herbs. Troubled skin is often a outward manifestation of an inner imbalance.
    • To effectively treat skin problems, you must also look at your diet and work on elimination of toxins. Good skin starts with a good diet. One of the most important components is foods rich in essential fatty acidslike flax, borage, and walnuts.
