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.

My son is 2 years old and recently had an eczema outbreak on his upper thigh and front diaper area. I tried everything I could think of naturally (homeopathic creams, coconut oil, eczema lotions, diaper cream, exclusive cloth diapering etc) with no improvement. I decided to call the pediatrician and he recommended a steroid cream which I wanted to avoid.

I remembered I had some Young Living German Chamomile and decided to try that mixed in with his Calendula Diaper cream. I applied a drop or two of the German Chamomile neat to the eczema, then the diaper cream, then diaper, applied about 3 times daily, or whenever I was doing a diaper change.

I also used Detoxzyme and forgot to mention this! I believe both products helped tremendously. I used about 1/5 of a capsule of the Detoxzyme mixed in with his food at every meal. He even liked the taste of the Fennel in the supplement.

I love this enzyme and would say it works great for the whole family! (Too much may cause loose stools I found, so you can decrease amount used if this happens.) Detoxzyme helps with breaking down the proteins that a young body may have difficultly with. I also removed dairy from his diet just in case.

It was really amazing. Within 24 hours I saw a great improvement and within three days the redness, rough skin and inflammation was completely gone.

Such a relief for my little guy and me!

5.Associated topics: food-allergy-/-sensitivity — "[T]he biological activity of 20 essential oils (EOs) from herbal plants and citrus fruits were investigated in terms of mammalian DNA polymerase (pol) inhibitory activity, cancer cell (human colon carcinoma) growth inhibitory activity, antiallergic activity... in rat basophilic leukemia cells, and antioxidant activity.... Among these EOs, chamomile... showed significant effects on both cancer cell growth and mast cell degranulation. On the basis of these results, chamomile EO can be recommended as a potentially useful, bioactive candidate for therapeutic applications."Link
6.Associated topics: eczema — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. 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
