Echinacea is probably best known as a treatment for colds and flu, due to its immune boosting properties. What many people don’t know is that it also contains natural compounds that make it an effective remedy for skin rashes. Echinacea has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that promote skin repair and renewal. Echinacea oil can be diluted with a carrier oil, like coconut, jojoba or olive oil. Simply mix a few drops with some of the oil and applied to the affected skin. Repeat every few hours until you have relief and the rash subsides.
