Q: I am very interested in botanical products but the range is so wide that I don't know where to start. Can you recommend some products to me? My skin has been plagued by tiny under-the-skin bumps. When bumps mature, they turn into pustules. The skin specialists cannot help my problem and I am annoyed about the scarring and roughness on my skin. Can you give me some advice?
A: Essential oil of Lavender Provence is antiseptic, soothing to skin, and can help with scars. Add 4 drops to a warm (not hot) bath or make cold compresses with 4 drops in 8-10 oz (250ml) distilled water (shake well).
