    I have a friend that has eczema & I know goats milk soap is good for all kinds of skin & skin issues but is there a certain essential oil that I can add to my goats milk soap that may help her?

    I have eczema, and when it flares up, the best soap I can use is a milk soap with a really high olive oil content. NO scent or color!

    By the way, for Psoriasis avoid using Lavender, because it works at making the skin cells turn over faster. Psoriasis is a disease where the skin cells reproduce too fast, thus making built up patches on the skin. You would just be exasperating the problem by adding it.
