2 ml of German Chamomile
2 ml of Roman Chamomile
3 ml of Lavender
1 ml of Tea Tree
Add some Marshmellow extract if you like it's known as demulcant which just means it has a film like action over the mucouse membranes. It is helpful for reducing minor pain and inflammation on the membranes.
German Chamomile is a bluish yellow in colour is well known for it's anti - inflammatory properies, it's very cooling and soothing, a calming and centring oil.
Roman Chamomile is slightly different I love them both and use them extensively. It is good for skin irriations, but also very calming to the mind and body, good for heat and agitation and not being able to sleep. I have found over the years if I am a bit sunburnt I feel very hot and find it hard to sleep.
Lavender is known as an all round balancing oil, very good for minor burns, eczema,psoriasis.
Lavender is not for everyone, I have had some clients who don't like lavender it gives them nightmares, this is a minority. If this is the case stop using Lavender oil immediately. It is quite ok just to use the Chamomiles on their own or with Tea Tree.
Tea Tree has antiseptic properties, it's anti-viral, anti-infectious, anti-fungal,anti- bacterial,astringent, An Excellent skin toner.
