One of the safest methods to treat many types of skin problems is to use natural remedies. A poultice is an option you can use that will not be as concentrated using essential oils and tinctures. This is an item that is essentially a paste wrapped in a cloth or other material made using various substances. You may find using a simple herbal poultice to be really beneficial.

All the ingredients you will need to make a herbal poultice can be found at most health stores. The reason that a poultice is beneficial is due to the healing and anti-inflammatory properties of herbs. If you want to make your own herbal poultice, then a few minutes is all you need.

You have the option to use dried herbs or fresh herbs for a herbal poultice. However, better results can be seen when you use fresh herbs. The goal is to make sure the poultice is contacting the skin. Many types of burns, boils, infections, and other skin ailments can be treated using a homemade poultice.

Water is a crucial ingredient when making your herbal poultice. The best option is to use hot water to help draw out contamination and cold water to help lessen any inflammation. All you will need to make a paste for a poultice is a blender or food processor. 

If you do not have fresh herbs, then dry herbs is the next best thing. The process used to make any herbal poultice will be the same. One important detail about applying a poultice is using the right kind of cloth. You’ll place the poultice onto the skin using cheesecloth (or something similar) wrapped in another fabric that is waterproof to prevent drips of water coming from your poultice.
