Ingredients list and properties

Listed In random order.  Ingredients will be listed in order of volume on each product description.

Arnica

This centuries old remedy comes from the bright yellow arnica flower which is found in the alpine meadows of Europe. It decreases inflammation and is an immune system booster. Tropical arnica soothes pain and restores joint function just as well as ibuprofen. It is also ideal for sprains, bruises, strains and in postoperative healing. 

Oatmeal 

Ancient Greeks and Romans are reported to have added oats to their bath water to treat rashes and itching. Oatmeal's use as a scrub or bath additive continued over the centuries. In 1945, a finely milled product called colloidal oatmeal was developed and allowed oatmeal's benefits to be added to fine soap products.

Benefits

Benefits of using oatmeal soaps include relieving skin irritation and redness from rashes or exposure, reducing itching and moisturizing or softening skin. These benefits make it an effective product for people with eczema, sunburn or allergies, the elderly and young children.

Olive oil 

Because Olive oil prevents cell destruction, it fights the signs of aging and gives you a more youthful appearance. When applied topically, olive oil moisturizes and softens dry skin.

Oliwax is stable to oxidation and it contains the unsaponifiable fraction of olive oil: one of the noblest part of the original olive oil that is very rich in squalene. Squalene is known to be contained in the human skin lipids too. The complete natural origin is from olive oil.

OLIVE OIL is one of the lipids showing the highest compatibility with our skin, and its chemical composition is very similar to human skin lipids system.

Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe vera has many healing properties and is used for burns, rashes, bites, sunburn and after sun care.
The main benefits of Aloe Vera are anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and restoration.  Aloe soothes and helps support the natural repair of skin that has been damaged. Aloe Vera extracts have antibacterial and antifungal activities, which may help in the treatment of minor skin infections. 

Calendula

It is useful for very sensitive skin, and to help heal the scars of past acne. It is very calming. Said to be useful for burns, eczema, psoriasis, chafing, rashes, dermatitis. Dried marigold infusions make good toners, and good calmers for the itchy eyes of hay fever. A tisane could help PMT. A drop of calendula oil or a tea made from Calendula flowers in a bath is good for psoriasis.

Comfrey Root Powder

Comfrey contains allantoin. 

Allantoin is a natural soothing, anti-irritant, and skin protectant that  increases the water content of the extracellular matrix which provides structural support to cells and connective tissue. Allantoin has also been reported to increases the smoothness of the skin; promotes cell replication; and promotes the healing of wounds, burns, and scars. Our skin naturally stops producing allantoin around age 20.

Magnesium Chloride

For purposes of cellular detoxification and tissue purification, the most effective form of magnesium is magnesium chloride, which has a strong excretory effect on toxins and stagnant energies stuck in the tissues of the body, drawing them out through the pores of the skin. This is a powerful hydrotherapy that draws toxins from the tissues, replenishes the “vital fluid” of the cells, and restores cellular magnesium to optimum levels. Magnesium chloride is environmentally safe, and is used around vegetation and in agriculture. It is not irritating to the skin at lower concentrations, and is less toxic than common table salt.
Magnesium chloride solution was not only harmless for tissues, but it also had a great effect
over leukocytic activity and phagocytosis; so it was perfect for external wound treatments.

Boswellia is available both as a supplement and as a topical cream. It has no adverse effects. 

Eucalyptus

Pain reliever, an antiseptic and a wound healer.  Muscle pain: If you are experiencing joint and muscle pain, massaging eucalyptus oil on the surface of the skin helps to relieve stress and pain. The volatile eucalyptus oil is analgesic and anti-inflammatory in nature. Therefore it is often recommended to patients suffering from rheumatism, lumbago, sprained ligaments and tendons, stiff muscles, aches, fibrosis and even nerve pain. The oil should be massaged in a circular motion on the affected areas of the body.

A powerful antioxidant. Water soluble. It can leave a slight bitter taste in products, but evidently it fights cancer and sun damage and it aides in skin cell regeneration. 

Citric acid

According to Mountain Rose Herbs, "Citric acid is used for many different reasons, including (but not limited to):

Antioxidant and preservative properties

Prevents rancidity and bacteria growth

Astringency and Acidity

Adjusts pH

Stabilizes the ingredients, color, taste, and flavor of a product

Rapidly biodegradable

Readily metabolized and eliminated from the body"
I use less than 1% in creams to lower the PH so its suitable for the skin.

Clove

Cloves are another spice that can be found in many recipes. In aromatherapy, 

Clove Oil

Clove oil contains Eugenol, the main active ingredient of clove. Eugenol is an anti-inflammatory. 
And clove oil is a great anti-fungal. It's even recommended by many who treat Candida. The oil is also useful for direct applications to outer skin fungi, such as ringworm and athlete's foot.  The clove oil can be used as an antiseptic and pain-reliever. Young children and pregnant or nursing women should avoid clove.
