Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

Our daughter was born early and has had atopic dermatitis and seborrheic dermatitis (aka seborrhea, sebopsoriasis, seborrheic eczema, dandruff, cradle cap, and pityriasis rosea) since she was two days old. She had the red, splotchy, dry-patch kind and the oozing, skin-opening, weeping kind.

We have used every steroid and cream possible... scary and to no avail.

What did the trick?

Step 1: Bathe with no soap, mildly warm water and dead sea salt.

Step 2: Apply alcohol-free witch hazel toner with aloe after the bath.

Step 3: Mix up the following essential oil salve:

* 10 drops Rose oil
* 10 drops Helichrysum
* 15 drops Copaiba
* Raw Mango Butter

Apply all over the body directly after the witch hazel toner. Also, when in the "bad" stages, apply this salve about every 3-4 hours during the day.

We are seeing consistent all-over results for the first time in a year. There are now NO broken areas on her skin, and there have not been any since we started this protocol.

I know these two essential oils (Rose and Helichrysum) are pricey, BUT we are actually saving from what we were purchasing at the pharmacy... especially since we order through a rewards program and get points towards free products.

It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
