HERBAL TREATMENT FOR SKIN PROBLEMS: HAIR AND SCALP, INSECT BITES AND STINGS

Hair and Scalp Problems
To eliminate dandruff and to arrest or prevent falling hair:
1 part Burdock root
1 part Stinging Nettle root or leaves
Infusion of fresh plants: apply daily as a lotion, massaging into the scalp

The following herbs all have a tonic effect on the hair and scalp. To prevent falling hair or to eliminate dandruff, or simply to impart softness and lustre to the hair:
Stinging Nettle herb
Rosemary leaves
Burdock root
Sage leaves
Thyme herb
Infusion of any of the above, alone or in combination: comb through the hair daily as a lotion — or massage into the hair and scalp for several minutes after normal shampooing, then rinse out

A strong infusion of Chamomile or Yarrow is used as a regular rinse to impart tone and colour to blonde or fair hair. Rosemary and Sage are used for dark hair.

Insect Bites and Stings
For relief from insect bites and stings use any of the following. Crush the fresh plant and rub on the affected area.
Aloe Vera leaves (apply fresh gel)
St John's Wort leaves
Marigold flowers
Plantain leaves
Pennyroyal (Mentha pulegium) leaves

Insect repellents:
The essential oils of Citronella, Lavender and Pennyroyal are disliked by flies, mosquitoes, fleas and other insects. Rub a few drops on exposed areas, carefully avoiding all contact with eyes, nose, mouth and mucous membranes.
Bunches of fresh Horehound, Stinging Nettle or Elder leaves (crushed) are hung in kitchens and pantries to discourage flies and other insects.
