Eczema is a non-contagious skin condition characterized by hot dry itchy skin, with symptoms that often vary over the course of the seasons or even days. It is provoked when the subject is exposed to certain triggers, especially allergens, emotional stress, heat, sweating and mechanical irritants (solvents, chemicals, detergents, bleach, woolen clothing, skin care products that contain alcohol, and certain soaps or fragrances.)

Skin with itchy eczema must be kept moisturized throughout the day. You can massage the area twice daily with 10 drops of chamomile essential oil (EO), 5 drops yarrow EO, 5 drops tagetes EO diluted in 2 tablespoons of almond oil, 30 drops of jojoba oil, and 10 drops of evening primrose oil. A natural skin moisturizer like shea butter should also be used after a bath or shower and each time you wash your hands if they are the affected area.

To keep your eczema under control with an alternative to prescription medicine method try the following:

  • Prevention –  Avoid or reduce your exposure to things that can irritate your skin such as household cleaners, detergents, certain soaps and wool clothing.
  • Moisturize – Use a moisturizer like shea butter or mango body butter on your skin every day to help keep it soft and supple.
  • Don’t Scratch – Even when it itches! Scratching irritates the skin and causes it to break and crack, leading to infection.
  • Identify Your Triggers – This can help you to avoid or limit your exposure to the culprit even better. If you believe a food is causing your problems, ask your doctor about an allergy test or try an elimination diet to identify the irritating product on your own.
  • Keep Hands Dry – Be sure to dry your hands completely after you wash them and don’t forget to Moisturize.
  • Wear Protective Gloves – Wear gloves when your hands will be exposed to anything that can irritate them (dish washing, house cleaning.)
  • Stress Management – Learn to manage your stress through regular exercise, breathing techniques, biofeedback, meditation and yoga.

Baby’s Massage Oil

Newborn babies respond well to touch and since it is an important part of the parent child bonding custom, parents should start using massage right away. Commercial baby oils usually have a petroleum or mineral oil base which is good for protecting baby’s skin from water and urine but not necessarily good for baby’s skin. I suggest using a formula which consists of carrier oils that are good for skin as well as essential oils that are good for the skin and have other benefits too.

The following formula uses 1/10th of the essential oil in an adult massage oil but it is still an excellent treatment for eczema and cradle cap, inflammation and teething problems and it acts as a general strengthener. It also boosts the immune system and has a wonderful calming effect  on the nervous system. The loving touch of mommy or daddy’s massage all over his or her body, avoiding only the genitals and the eyes, will keep baby contented.

Baby’s Massage Oil Formula

This massage oil can be used daily on your two to twelve month old baby.


Impotence is a distressing subject for the person who is suffering from it as well as his partner. There is usually no physical reason for the inability to achieve an erection and the causes are almost always due to mental and or emotional issues. There can be anxiety about a specific sexual encounter or about a man’s sexuality in general that leads to a failure and that leads to further anxiety and creates a vicious circle that can have a devastating effect. Other areas of life such as finances, health, or work can cause external stress leading to impotence too.

The use of aphrodisiac essential oils can break this cycle by working on stress in general. Having a massage by a trained massage therapist will provide the enjoyable use of touch in a completely non-sexual situation while also being generally relaxing and de-stressing. The therapist can use Aromatic baths before bedtime and even using these powerful aphrodisiac essential as a perfume or after shave will also assist.

Use any of the following oils for impotence:

  • Sandalwood
  • Jasmine
  • Clary Sage (do not use if drinking alcohol – alcohol is an enemy to virility anyway.)

These oils have the ability to relax the mind and emotions. The man’s partner can blend one or more of the above essential oils with coconut carrier oil and give him a massage. This massage is not intended to lead to lovemaking and intercourse. If it does, that is good but that is not the point of it and the massage is successful if the man is simply more relaxed afterwards.


If your neck is showing signs of age, you might want to give it a special treatment of the following synergistic  blend of essential oils. Use 10 drops of rose, 7 drops clary-sage, 10 drops lemon, and 20 drops carrot essential oil blended well with 1 teaspoon  of evening primrose oil. Gently massage this mixture into the skin and leave it on for at least ten minutes before wiping off the excess oil.

After a long winter of turtle-neck sweaters and woolen scarves, the neck will benefit greatly if you slough off dead skin cells, brighten up and tone the neck and prepare it for a treatment oil as discussed in part I of essential oils for neck care. Mix 1 teaspoon of ground almond with 1/2 teaspoon of jojoba oil into a paste and rub it all over the neck and chest area in upward movements. Leave this on for 10 minutes then rinse it off with water followed by a rinse with the following tonic water: 1/4 teaspoon cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon spring water, 1 teaspoon witch hazel, and 2 drops lemon essential oil. Mix the lemon essential oil with the witch hazel and then blend that with the other ingredients. Rinse most of the paste off with water and then add the vinegar tonic water to the final rinse until all the almond paste is gone.


Have you ever seen a woman whose face was beautiful but when you glanced at her neck, it marred her appearance? No matter how much make up and concealer is on the face, if you don’t take care of the delicate skin on your neck, it will be like a lovely delicate rose on a stalk that can not support it. The neck is one of the first places the body begins to show its age.  Crinkled skin, loss of elasticity, wrinkles and double chins all lead one to look older even though great care is put into maintaining the good looks of the face. You can try to keep your neck covered with a scarf but that is not practical and, thankfully, the neck responds extremely well to essential oil treatments.

The essential oils to use for neck care are rose, geranium, clary-sage, lemon, lemongrass, black pepper, or carrot. Use any one of these oils added to a carrier oil like jojoba, evening primrose, or avocado to begin your treatments.  The neck is a very delicate area and must be cleansed with the same care you use on your face. Add one drop of one of the above essential oils to each 3/4 teaspoon of your usual cleansing cream. Then each night before bed apply the following blend: 8 drops of pettigraine, 3 drops of orange, 10 drops carrot oil, 14 drops palma rosa, and 5 drops of lemon blended well with 3 teaspoons jojoba oil, 2 teaspoons wheatgerm oil, and 2 teaspoons of avocado oil. Leave this on for a few minutes and then wipe off any excess with a tissue before going to bed.

The oils that I use whenever I am getting a massage are ones that definitely help to make me feel a whole lot more comfortable. Picking the right kinds of items to use when I get a massage isn’t always easy, but having the right kinds of oils to use is always so wonderful and so relaxing.


Almond oil is the most popular carrier oil used for facial and body massage because its excellent emollient properties help the skin to balance absorption. It is a great moisturizer that is suitable for all skin types, helps relieve irritation, inflammation and itching, and is fantastic when used for lubricating because it penetrates slowly.

Almond oil is a good massage medium to use to assist the spread of the carrier oil and essential oil mixture, while still allowing you time to do a good massage before it is absorbed by the skin. Not only does almond oil help protect the surface of the skin, but it is a wonderful emollient, skin soother and softener, conditioner of the skin, and it promotes a clear, young looking complexion. Almond oil is suitable for all skin types but is especially good for dry or irritated skin.

Other natural carrier oils include aloe vera oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, evening primrose oil, grapeseed oil, jojoba oil, liquid shea oil, red turkey oil, sunflower oil, and natural vitamin E oil. Some of these oils are thin, some are thicker. They range from clear to yellow in color and the price ranges from $4.00 to 100.00 depending on the number of ounces you get. My favorites are sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, liquid shea oil and red turkey oil. I especially like the red turkey oil because that is the one I make my bath oils with because it actually dissolves in water.


I have been experimenting with some awesome essential oils lately and they have become an important part of my daily routine. They are a great way for me to stay stress-free and calm and to enjoy some awesome healing for my mind, body, and soul. I love using essential oils for my daily relaxation and health.

We live in a busy world and I need to have some time to just relax and enjoy the moment in my day-to-day life. It is hard for me to not feel like I am always running from one place to another. However, with these great essential oils, I can stay in a great mood and I can be focused and feel great in my busy life. I love getting new essential oils.

Finding some great carrier oils for my essential oils helps me to have the best experience for massage and for some aromatherapy as well. I love using carrier oils to dilute my essential oils and help them to carry their properties into my skin. The oils are perfect for helping me to feel and to look my best on a daily basis.


When I first saw my newborn son I exclaimed that he looked awful because of his flaky, wrinkled skin. I felt better when the nurse said that he was a beautiful baby and the matter on his skin would be gone in a few days. My great-grandmother lived with us at that point and she told me to use olive oil on his skin and that eventually got rid of the flaky stuff. Some hospitals use olive oil on newborns and that is better than a mineral-based oil but some olive oil has gone through a lot of processing and may have been stored for a long period of time.

The best oil to use on your newborn baby’s skin, especially for that first cleaning in the hospital, is composed of 2 tablespoons almond oil with 5 drops of evening primrose oil, plus 3 drops of jojoba oil and 10 drops of wheatgerm oil. This is a mild, odorless oil and hospital staff should have no objection to using it to clean the baby after its birth. This oil can also be used as a massage oil for you and the baby later.


massage fat blasterWe all need a good massage occasionally and I have a recipe for a massage oil that will have you wanting a massage everyday. You only need a 1 ounce bottle filled with 1 ounce of liquid shea oil. The essential oils to add are:

  • 5 drops patchouli
  • 3 drops neroli
  • 3 drops lavender

After adding the essential oils to the liquid shea oil, screw the cap on and shake gently. Pour about the size of a quarter into your hands and massage all over you body avoiding your face, eyes and sensitive areas. When the massage is completed, always wash your hands.
