Ok, I know this is off topic from PUPPPs (for any new-comers, this is a blog about a miserable pregnancy rash.), BUT this is too good NOT to share.
I don't currently have any rash, but I ALWAYS keep a bottle of my PUPPPs Essential oil blend around, because we've found it is super handy for anything itchy. Bug bite? Momma whips out the oils. Dry skin? Momma whips out the oils. My girls request "mom's oils" for all their itchy needs!
So, when my husband got a nasty case of poison oak after a run-in with a bush, I urged him to give it a try. It worked soooo well! The puffiness of the rash (which was impressive) went away within the hour, and the oozing, weepy part dried up within a day or two of 3x day applications. Plus, it curbed the itch big time!
I'm kicking myself for not getting before and after pictures!
You can read in more detail about my blend (and get the recipe)
in my other post about my essential oil blend. There should be a link on the right side of the page, as long as you're not viewing the blog in the mobile version.
The main oils are:
Then, there's just a touch of these:
I dilute my oils in jojoba oil, as it is already wonderful for skin.
I hope someone is helped by this! My husband was sure thankful!
