Using Essential Oils for Eczema

Q: Dear Dr. Power, What essential oils do aromatherapists recommend for a baby with eczema? Thank you for your help! Kindest Regards, S.H. 

A: Dear S.H., 

Valerie Worwood, in her book The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy, suggests the following essential oil blend for eczema in babies: 

Roman Chamomile - 1 drop 

Lavender - 1 drop 

Geranium - 1 drop 

Dilute these essential oils in 2 tablespoons Organic Sweet Almond Oil and mix well. Apply a small amount once daily. 

Before using this formula on any baby, do a "patch" test on a small area of skin to ensure that he/she is not allergic to any of the ingredients.
