Re: Essential Oils for Impetigo (or weeping eczema?)
While weeping eczema seems to be a diagnosis with one of a few potential causes, impetigo is specifically bacterially-mediated.
Our Soothing Skin Extra is blended specifically as an inflammation reducer and supporter of skin healing in such conditions, though it does not include an antibacterial. We HIGHLY recommend the use of "Benchmark" Thyme essential oil
in addition for cases of weeping eczema and impetigo. It is a far more comprehensive antibacterial than Tea Tree - in fact, it's the only single essential oil shown to be effective against the MRSA bacteria - meaning completely effective, not just partially, and effective on its own, not in a blend.
The Soothing Skin Extra has been lauded by our customers for its efficacy at reducing inflammation in dry eczema, and with the addition of an anti-bacterial, should do wonders.
The Benchmark Thyme can be added to the Soothing Skin Extra at a 3% concentration, or about 15 drops per each ounce of blend. Apply twice daily.
