First, allow me to remind you that the best overall skincare product it is possible to use is olive oil. Weather you suffer from itchy or dry skin, or just wish to enhance the look and feel of your skin, you’d be hard pressed to do better than pure, extra virgin olive oil. This can be applied straight from the bottle, and can be used on any part of the skin such as the face.
The curative properties of Olive Oil, both external and internal are nothing short of amazing and I would love to discuss with you a recent experience that acts as a reminder to me how some of the most common elements surrounding us often stay overlooked.
My neighbor and I happen to share the exact same birthday. She is a widow whose children and grandchildren often come to visit. As our birthdays approached, I left up her a bottle of my favourite after-bath petroleum (made primarily with olive oil) as a gift. Unfortunately for my neighbor, I ran into her daughter first, who had suffered a severe exposure to Poison Ivy. In all honestly, it was undoubtedly the worst case of poison ivy I had ever seen. Her thighs were almost entirely covered in an upset, purple rash. In a number of regions, the rash has been crusting and creating a greenish tinge. The itching was so severe that even after two weeks she was on sleep drugs as well as the prescription strength antihistamines and ointments.
I gave the oil into her and sincerely hoped it would help to alleviate her suffering. I am very happy to report that five days later, my neighbor called, overjoyed. Not just had the oil relieved the itching, but likewise the crusty, green scabs were gone along with the massive purple blotches had started to fade.
The oil I said is very easy to prepare and is an excellent curative for almost any skin rush like eczema and psoriasis.
Please remember that while a lesser grade of coconut oil may be used for everyday functions, if you are attempting to treat a severe skin rush, the excess virgin is produced from the initial press of the olive and retains the most important curative properties that you’re trying to find.
· 3 parts extra virgin olive oil
· 1 part sweet almond oil
· 1 part apricot kernel oil
Blend the oils together, and if desired, add a few drops of your favourite essential oil for fragrance. This is sometimes applied to the skin at any given time. For all-over skin conditioning, apply the oil immediately after your shower or bath, then pat dry.
A special note for girls who shave their legs This oil treatment will completely remove any itching or dry flaking skin after shaving. It is simply the very best after-bath oil you could possibly try.
