Oliver has suffered with eczema since he was a tiny baby. It was something I knew he would end up having, as I am also a sufferer. We went back and forth to the doctors a few times trying different creams, and eventually got it under control. I have always been quite careful what products I use on his skin and in his bath, as I had noticed there were certain products which flared up his eczema.
I was contacted by OrganicXY to see if I would like to review their bath teas. They are a small, new company, set up by a mum who found d bathing her son in colloidal oats helped heal his eczema. She makes the teas here, in the UK, from organic Scottish oats and Yorkshire lavender. They come in a compostable, cotton wash bag, which doubles up as an exfoliator. Meaning you don’t need to use any other products!
The product arrived very quickly and I was sent a weeks supply to try out. I love lavender and I have a big patch of it just outside the front of my house, which smells heavenly. So whilst I ran Oliver’s bath, I went and snipped off a few fresh heads of lavender. I popped the bath tea bag in, slooshed it around and put the fresh lavender in the bath too. The bath smelt so nice (and it was definitely an instagrammable bath)! The smell of lavender is one of my absolute favourites, I can imagine it is so relaxing to bathe in and would definitely help me sleep!
Oliver loved the bath, the water felt so moisturising. After getting him out, I could instantly feel his skin was softer and smoother. After a few nights of trying it out, the patches of eczema that just wouldn’t go with the creams he was prescribed, had started to disappear.
It’s amazing that something so natural and simple can have such a quick effect on skin! I know that the bath tea will be my go to whenever Oliver or I have an eczema flare up. I think if mine ever flares up I will be using it too!
