Have you ever had an itchy rash that you couldn’t stop scratching? Something that was not really serious but it was still annoying? We have all had that feeling whether it was from a stiff collar, your hair on your neck or just a reaction to a new laundry detergent. Using the right essential oils can sooth your rash and stop the scratching right away.

The essential oils to use for rashes are lavender, chamomile and eucalyptus. You can use any one of them or make a synergistic blend of any two or all three of them. These are essential oils that everyone should have in their aromatherapy pharmacy. If you only have one essential oil it should be lavender so that would be my first choice to use for a rash but if you have all three, I would blend them and put 5 drops of the blend into a teaspoon of carrier oil such as sweet almond oil, jojoba oil or evening primrose oil. Apply the mixture to your rash two or three times per day and top it off with a good skin moisturizer.
