Anti-inflammatory Cream for Eczema and Psoriasis
This cream really soothes skin inflammation and irritation but it’s not a cure. If you have contact dermatitis, some people have developed a Linalool allergy a few of these essential oils do contain a small % of Linalool. You can make these without the essential oil, do a skin test or check with your dermatologist. Geranium 8-15% linalool & lavender 20-50% linalool. Neem oil doesn’t contain linalool nor does rosemary. I would stick with a skin test if you have a linalool allergy and use only the neem oil and rosemary essential oil.
