All you need to do is mix 2-3 drops of lavender oil with your normal oil and apply it on your scalp. Lavender oil can also be used to treat burns and ulcers because of its anti-inflammatory properties.
Widely used in soaps, lotions, creams, etc., rose is an age-old flower used in the beauty industry. Its hydrating and soothing property is what makes it ideal to be used as rose water. Rose also comes in the forms of serums, face masks, and face creams, which helps in soothing your skin. If you suffer from irritated and pimple ridden skin, then you must resort to rose night cream. Overnight usage of rose-infused cream will help treat broken skin vessels and will restore the moisture back in your face.
A wonder flower for all those suffering from skin conditions like eczema, acne, pruritus, and impetigo, pansy is a natural healer. Pansy can also be used as an astringent because of the presence of salicylic acid which has an instant calming effect on the skin.
