Camphor and menthol have a numbing effect on the skin, but they are extremely pungent and need to be used in moderation since the fumes can have negative side effects. I purchased this awesome topical cream from a local green shop that is make with camphor, menthol, and white willow bark - it numbs and cools painful spots on contact, kind of like Icy-Hot!
I highly suggest aloe, which when applied topically, helps reduce inflammation and provides a protective coating to prevent further irritation. Aloe is naturally cooling to inflamed skin tissue and relieves burning, itching, redness, stinging, and pain associated with hives.
Can you shed more light on this? Did she burn her skin from a heat source, or does her skin have a burning feeling from some sort of rash? Aloe always my go-to natural source for burns, and herbs like calendula, chickweed, plantain, and yarrow are amazing for soothing all types of skin irritation.
Thanks for the suggestion! Any constructive criticism is always welcomed.
Yes, I can definitely do this! Look for a borage post in the near future. Thanks for the recommendation. xo.
Breast enhancement products are a myth, whether they are factory-produced or “all natural.” There is no herb that can magically make your breasts bigger, darling, so I suggest you take some time to reflect and make peace with your body. Trust me, I know it’s no small feat, as I have had many body image issues myself… but there’s no point in pinning your hopes on fantasy creams and lotions and pills that are supposed to “fix” you.
So I’m guessing you asked me this question a while ago and that final have come and gone. Sorry! I shall answer it anyway for anyone else interested.
In most cases, taking an herb internally isn’t going to be effective immediately unless it’s something to help you get to sleep or soothe the stomach. Herbalism is about steady, preventative medicine, so it’s best to take a powerful herb like ginko at least a month or two before you desire its full effect. Ginko tends to have a very wide range of effects on body and mind.
Thank you my lovely moon child!
Thanks so much for the kind words! The shampoo generally has a short shelf-life, about 1 month. The herbal infusion in the shampoo sometimes goes rancid after that. However, check the shampoo and see if it’s smelling funky - if nothing seems off scent-wise, you should be okay. :)
