Meghan D. Asks:

I am looking for something that would be safe to use on  my 1 year old to help his eczema.  Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question.

Dr. Streicher Answers:

Dear Meghan,

Roman chamomile, neroli, iris, and helichrysum are very mild and safe to use in a 0.5% dilution in jojoba on a 1-year-old.  Use one at a time to determine which one works best. In addition, I suggest seriously look into possible causes for the eczema.  They are not eliminated by the essential oils.

Kind Regards,

Christoph Streicher, Ph.D.
