Spring allergies can cause eczema flare ups, hives and other dry, itchy skin conditions.  Home Essentials Calamine Lotion & Calamine Cream soothe skin and support the immune defenses after scratching.  They also contain the active ingredient zinc oxide which has antiseptic properties and helps the natural immune response after scratching.  

Home Essentials Calamine Cream and Lotion make great companion products to an antihistamine treatment.  Simply rub onto skin as required or apply to affected areas using a cotton ball and allow to dry before dressing.

Springtime weather is very changeable, which can wreak havoc with your skin. Two Home Essentials products ideal for gently cleansing and moisturising the skin are:

Best-selling Home Essentials Witch Hazel makes a pleasant facial toner or gentle aftershave. Soak cotton wool ball and apply to face in an upward circular motion. For use as a gentle aftershave, splash a small amount onto face using palm of your hands to help tone skin and tighten pores.

Follow your cleansing routine by moisturising with Home Essentials Moisturising Aqueous Cream. This cream is an SLS-free, soothing moisturiser for dry and sensitive skin. It is free from common irritants such as colour and fragrance, and is also paraben free. Used regularly, it supports moist, soft, smooth skin.

With Spring upon us, many consume will be hitting the gym and getting back into the garden. Exercising and physical exertion can lead to stiff and tired muscles as bodies burst back into action after winter hibernation. Those with stiff and tired muscles can benefit from a relaxing and detoxifying Epsom Salts bath soak. Epsom Salts are rich in Magnesium, a naturally occurring mineral that is important for many systems in the body especially the muscles and nerves.

Home Essentials Epsom Salts make a great companion product to topical pain relief. Dissolve 1-2 cups of Epsom Salts in a hot bath to produce a mineral water treatment to aid in the relief of muscular stiffness and creakiness. If required, apply topical pain relief as directed, post bath.

Important note on stain removal – Before you begin, remove as much of the solids as possible, and blot up as much liquid as possible. Dab the stain, don’t rub. Begin at the outer edge of the stain, working your way towards the centre. If possible apply treatment from the back of the fabric. Be cautious with application, by applying too much solvent or rubbing too vigorously you risk spoiling the fabric. Never strengthen solutions if they don’t work. Always rinse fabric and let dry before trying another remedy. If you decide to take fabric to a professional cleaner, tell them what caused the stain and what home treatments you have already tried.
