The issue of irritated skin is a complex one. And an issue well beyond the scope of this site! We make NO medical claims. Nothing we sell, or recommend is intended in any way to diagnose or treat any diseases or medical conditions!
Dry, itchy skin!
We know this battle well!
If you have irritable skin due to a medical problem, stop, and see your health care provider! If you have done that and the problem is NOT of a medical origin, or your health care provider approves these ingredients, proceed. When our daughter had irritable skin her doctor told us that Hydrocortisone Cream was great, but would thin her skin over time, and therefore, should be used as little as possible. Yikes!
She was little, but we were pretty sure by the time she was 40, she wouldn’t want to look 60! Just sayin…
So, we had to find something else. Oils as a base were an obvious choice. As any water based lotions had to have chemical preservatives as an additive (otherwise mold would grow). We knew we didn’t want to add nasty chemicals to already irritated skin!
But then what?
Well, the best oils possible, combined with the best herbs and additives possible seemed like the best option to us.
Calendula and Chamomile were heavily used for irritation relief, so they were an obvious choice for infusing the oils. (Please note if you have an allergy to the Asterceae family of flowers you should not use this product.) We also added the Super Oils Jojoba, Tamanu, and Rosehip!
Dead Sea Clay, originating from the Dead Sea (Bet ya figured that out?), is known to have high levels of magnesium, potassium, and calcium, and is thought to be good for your skin.
Lavender and Patchouli essential Oils were the clear choice for essential oils as they are widely reputed to help irritated skin!

Instructions for use: As with all new products, test on small area of skin and wait 24 hours before continued use. If any reaction occurs discontinue use immediately. Use on dry areas in very small amounts as this is extremely concentrated. Allow 2-3 minutes to fully absorb. If not fully absorbed in this time, you may be using more than necessary.
None of our body products contain water or artificial, chemical preservatives! The tub should be used within 3 months of purchase, or kept in the refrigerator for longer storage.
Allergic to Daisies?
This product contains Calendula and Chamomile ingredients which are both in the Asteraceae family. If you have a known allergy to this family of flowers do not use. In the case of allergy to the Asteraceae family, we recommend Susie’s Select. If any reaction occurs to any product, discontinue use!
Do not use on children under the age of 6 without consulting their health care practitioner. Keep out of the reach of children. Do not use on mucous membranes or open skin.
This Lotion Alternative has a far less smooth texture than our other Lotion Alternatives due to the herbs. Three of us actually use this product and after it is massaged in we simply brush the extra herbs away. We use it for its effect, not the initial feel.
