Most of the time we pick a specific product because we are in need of a certain outcome. Such as a need to soothe dry skin, help with oily skin, psoriasis, an anti inflammatory aid, astringent, etc.
This can become overwhelming and you spend a lot of time doing research to find the right one. Below is a list that I have started to help you to determine which one of my products is best suited for you.

This is an anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and anti-fungal. Good for local skin problems that are due to infection, treats wounds, burns, bruises. Great in salves for burns, & irritated skin.
Honey products: Honey is an emollient, which helps to relieve dry skin. I use it in my soaps and lotions & creams.
Chamomile products: The flowers have a rich supply of essential oil that acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. A few drops of the essential oil can be used with massage oil for a calming effect and to soothe sore achy muscles. Excellent Healer. Stimulates tissue repair, soothing and anti-inflammatory. It also helps to sooth the pain of bites and stings.
