Palmarosa for Rash

Amalace or palmarosa (not sure how it is spelled) is it good for rashes? I have them all the time, trying to find something that works.

I am not familiar with amalace.

Palmarosa is an essential oil and has a history of use for skin problems. Seeds for this plant is available from Richters. I would like to caution you when applying essential oils to make certain that they are in a carrier oil first such as almond oil or grape seed oil.

You need to find the underlying cause of your rash before determining a treatment plan. Skin rashes are very common and there are numerous causes such as poor liver function, poor elimination function, food sensitivities, allergies, nutritional deficiencies, and nerves to name a few. You may want to consult a registered herbalist to help you find the underlying cause.
