Rashes / Inflamed Skin / Itchy Skin

Not all rashes and inflamed skin are caused by the same thing, of course. Poison ivy, for example, is a temporary rash; eczema can be ongoing, and psoriasis is a medical condition. But in most incidences skin problems exhibit in similar ways Ė red, sometimes, painful, itchy, scaling, inflamed skin. At Natureís Common Scents we are very concerned about the cause of the problem, and know that you are too. But we also know that most of the time the first thing that you want is to have your skin look and feel better. These natural plant products were created specifically for such problems.

Special Moments

As women begin the middle years of their lives one very private skin problem affects many: vaginal dryness. But itís often not discussed, and when it is mentioned to doctors they generally offer estrogen creams or oral hormones, which can have unwanted side effects. Not only is vaginal dryness uncomfortable, but it can contribute to a cycle of itching, redness, soreness, and even bladder and yeast infections. And it makes romantic evenings painful. Advertising today offers sticky, often unpleasant moisturizers that are promoted as making intimacy more pleasurable. Certainly for women who suffer from vaginal dryness, ďpleasurableĒ is not the word I would use. Furthermore, vaginal dryness isn't just something bothersome during intercourse; it is a persistent, sometimes medical, problem. Skin is skin, and when our own bodies seem to be turning against us, we need to moisturize and repair even in our most private areas. Special Moments is a blend of gentle plant oils that lubricate as well as help rejuvenate skin tissue (Evening primrose and Rosehip seed oils which are gentle, moisturizing and healing with Rose Absolute which is anti-inflammatory, cooling and soothing) and therefore, used over time, can not only provide immediate relief but improve vaginal skin over time. Contains Evening primrose, Rosehip seed, Olive, Coconut oil, Shea butter, Beeswax and rose absolute. Quarter pound.
