This week I heard from Thomas who used the lotion bar recipe to try out on his pityriasis rosea (a.k.a. "rash").
Along with the photo, he wrote:
I brought some to work and already some people want me to make some for them. The doctor said there is no cure for my rash, but when it goes away I should not get it back. I think your recipe, possibly with the essential oil I used is a cure. Today my rash looks almost gone, and it's the first time in three months I haven't had to slather myself with hydrocortisone cream.
I love that he used some silicone molds from Halloween as his own reminder that he's killing the rash.
That's awesome, Thomas.
