Eczema’s Examiner – Lavandin Oil

Jerry mouse just made the life of Tom cat a lot tougher…he still continues to…Likewise the life of certain things/people is always infested with something that makes life for them a lot tougher…Okay I agree…this was the lamest reference and explanation possible…But please bear with me…I hope you got the link…

What I meant  to say was that if there are certain things to pester us then there are others to bail us from the pestering…Lavandin oil is one such bailing element from the pestering and pathetic Eczema…

Before anything understand the condition Eczema in detail…

This word Eczema basically comes from two Greek words… ‘ek’ meaning out…and ‘zema’ meaning boils….Basically eczema…which is also called dermatitis…is a medical condition wherein the skin swells….The discomfort and pain arising from the small blisters of the skin makes it feel as if it is boiling…

Eczema is a hypersensitivity reaction…it is not considered a disease and it is not contagious….Its just that the skin gets more reactive to anything that touches it and hence…it easily itches….Itching will make you scratch so flare-ups will be triggered…Also…one might feel uncomfortable in the presence of water….Also quite a lot many people that have this condition and use rubber gloves when washing dishes or doing other daily activities….Its an extremely hygienic thing to do…draw inspiration…

As a matter of fact..there is no discrimination as far as advent of this disease is concerned….Both children and adults may contract eczema…but it usually occurs in infants…The cause of eczema is not yet known…but it often affects those having a family history of allergies….A lot of people suffering from eczema have asthma or allergic rhinitis…or have relatives who do….

And even according to the National Institute of Health…approximately 15 million people have eczema in the United States alone….Around 10 to 20 percent of babies have eczema…but the condition will greatly improve by the time they are 5 and 15 years old in nearly have of them…Others will continue to have the said condition for the rest of their lives….

Lavandin…The Examiner Of Eczema

Lavandin is basically a hybrid of true lavender and spike lavender…Lavandin is an easier crop to manufacture and it is-

  • Sharper
  •  Harsher
  • Contains far more camphor than true lavender

And it is even used in soaps…detergents…lotions….and hairspray as the aroma is more lasting than that of true lavender…

To add on to the faith….it is an age old herbal medicine and also the most known scent throughout the aromatic world… In aromatherapy…it is regarded as the most versatile essence….Lavender has the Latin name ‘Lavare’ that means “to wash”….Since ancient times…lavender oil has always been known for its healing powers….It has been used as a natural

  • Antiseptic
  • An anti-depressant
  • An antibiotic
  • A sedative
  • A detoxifier

Its surprising to know that even the ancient Greeks used this oil to treat throat infections…constipation and chest conditions while the Romans used lavender flower heads in communal baths…Although lavender oil has numerous applications but its most beneficial use is in the treatment of skin disorders where it has been shown to be highly effective…

Conditions like Eczema which can be treated well due to its anti-inflammatory effect…It gives its best effect when added with chamomile….Also… it can be used with cold compresses as well…

Killing Creepy Moths – Lavandin Oil

My father’s awfully expensive wedding suit was ruined to rags…Thanks to those big old trunks in the house that held all the woollens and old clothes…didn’t let even a blow of air to pass through…causing moisture to develop…and letting moths to breathe in the process…

That’s not it…quickly read on this handy information about the devastating little creatures…

  • Caterpillars of clothes moths feed on wool, fur, feathers, shed pet hair and lint…They will not feed on cotton..silk or synthetic fibres but may feed on food left on clothes and while eating the food will eat holes in synthetic garments including plastics…
  • Freezing at 0 F for 72 hours or raising the temperature 110 F to 120 F for 30 minutes or maintaining humidity below 30% will kill moths and larva…
  • Clothes moths are uncommon in a dry climate….
  • It is the caterpillar stage of all clothes moths that damages clothing…
  • Moths are much less attracted to clothes that have been dry cleaned prior to storage…
  • Infested materials can be treated by temperature…or by fumigant insecticides…
  • Naphthalene or lavandin oil…But please try not to allow moth balls to come in direct contact with clothes fabric…separate with paper or other…
  • Tight-fitting containers can prevent infestation of clothes moths again…

To make your ears stand up….listen to this…

You know these female moths lay their eggs within one to three weeks after they emerge… Eggs are glued to woollen threads so that they are not easily dislodged…The eggs do not remain dormant for long periods…although hatching is delayed by cool temperatures…It is a myth that eggs can remain dormant for long periods and suddenly produce new infestations…imagine! Sounds so scary!

And the cherry on the cake! That caterpillar stage feeds on wool soon after egg hatch…Often they construct a silken tube and feed in the vicinity of this shelter…Other times the larvae may continue to move across the fabric and only produce scattered patches of silk on which it rests…

Articles to be stored should be cleaned and then packed in tight-fitting containers with moth balls or flakes containing or naphthalene or Lavandin oil…Though it will repel clothes moths or prevent them from laying eggs….but the vapours from these materials are lethal to clothes moths…but only when maintained at sufficient concentrations….In order to achieve these levels…the vapours must be tightly confined with the items you wish to protect…Effective concentrations can best be achieved by first sealing susceptible items in large plastic bags…and then storing the bagged articles in tight-fitting trunks…boxes or chests…Contrary to popular belief…(just an advise) because the seal is insufficient to maintain a lethal or repellent concentration of the volatile Lavandin oil….would do wonders…

Because of Lavandin’s quality of having an extremely sharp smell…and its anti-bacterial properties…it is the option for such pest infestations..
