Read on here, a few weeks ago about Solar Oil being quite good for eczema. Would like to try some on my son, could anyone tell me where I can buy it and how much it costs (also, what its proper use is?)
SolarOil is a blend of four light botanical oils. Jojoba, Vitimine E. Rice Bran and sweet almond oil. Completely natural.
It is used specifically to soften dry skin around the nail unit and to plasticize the product. BUT it may be used anywhere on the body and the combination of these oils has a natural anti-inflammatory action on any inflammed tissue.
SolarOil is not a cure for excema, BUT it's natural anti-inflammatory properties do have the effect of soothing the redness and the itching thus reducing the itch and the anxiety associated with it.
Many clients with excema have found solarOil to be of tremendous benefit.
It can be purchased in an 8oz salon size bottle. It is not inexpensive, but you will find that a little goes a long way.

I have problem skin (excema - hands, neck,face & psoraisis on my scalp) & I regularly use my solar oil on excema on my hands, and in particuarly my face. It works wonders, & is much kinder than my steroid cream.
Like Geeg say's, a little does go a long way.
Another thing to try though is to cut down on gluten intake - I have been told this clears it up completely!
Does it help psoriasis?? My boyfriend has it really really badly, and has gone through every damn cream there is! Is using solar oil worth a go? It obviously wont cure it but will it settle it down and relieve it a bit??
