Today's Therapy Thursday is three easy recipes by Essential oil Sanctuary containing Benzoin in Essential Oil form.
Scalp Tonic - Do you suffer from psoriasis on your scalp? Get rid of itchy, scaly patches that cause embarrassing skin flakes by adding five drops of benzoin essential oil to baby shampoo (or a similar mild shampoo) and shake well prior to each use.
Skin Balm - Benzoin essential oil is antiseptic: it’s germicidal, bactericidal, fungicidal, and antiviral. A balm made with benzoin essential oil is ideal to have on hand for scratches, burns, skin ulcers, and other wounds.
Try this combination to help heal injured skin: Ingredients: 10 ml almond oil 6 drops benzoin essential oil 2 drops lavender essential oil
Toner - While diluted tincture of benzoin makes an ideal astringent toner, benzoin essential oil can help reduce the appearance of dark spots associated with premature aging and sun exposure. It encourages renewal of the skin and assists in repairing damage. Combine the following, and apply it to the skin daily:
10 ml almond oil 4 drops lemon essential oil 4 drops benzoin essential oil
