For the last week a friend of my was dealing with a rash that started on the left underarm to the elbow…. then forearm and then wrist. Well, you get the picture… it was spreading. Of course she fell into automatic pilot and reached for Benadryl Gel…. and it continued to spread. When talking with a good friend she said, “Have you tried Lavender Oil or Frankincense Oil?
She used 2 cotton balls – On the first she put lavender oil w/ coconut oil and the second frankincense with coconut oil. (She didn’t know if one was better than the other so… she tried one on each arm.)
She rubbed that stuff from armpit to wrist. The very next day the rash was 100% better and by day 2 it was GONE! Much better than the Benadryl Gel.
She found on the Internet… .
“Anti-Itch –Whether you’re battling a rash or poison ivy, applying some peppermint oil mixed with lavender oil is certain to cool and soothe any itch.”
She was sooooo glad she had the Lavender Oil, Frankincense Oil and Coconut Oil ready to use. Next time she will use the Peppermint Oil and save her Frankincense!
My opinion is that you should call your doctor if you have any kind of rash, especially if you have a fever too. If the rash isn’t a symptom of any serious disease you could try essential oils to reduce the discomfort. You may also discuss this option with your doctor.
