It’s a perfect blend of essential oils for cuts and scrapes to keep in your medicine cabinet.
This blend combines Foraha (Tamanu) and Helichrysum italicum, two of the best essential oils for rashes, skin irritation, and topical healing.

What does Foraha (Tamanu) oil smell like?
Foraha oil, also known as Tamanu oil, is cold pressed from the nut of the Calophyllum inophyllum plant that grows in tropical Asia. This essential oil has a rich, sweet, nutty smell that’s slightly creamy and reminiscent of pecans. According to some, Foraha (Tamanu) oil even smells like butter pecan ice cream!
What does Helichrysum italicum oil smell like?
Helichrysum italicum oil offers a deep aroma that’s both herbal and floral. Its scent can be described as earthy and often draws comparison to fennel seed or black licorice. This essential oil is warm, rich, slightly sweet, and has smooth notes of wood and butter.
Can you use essential oils for rashes?
