Calamine lotion used in the 1950s for sun burn, poison ivy blisters. It is a chalky pink color. Calamine is either a mixture of Zinc Oxide with about 0.5% ferric oxide or a zinc carbonate compound. In a 1992 press release, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that no proof had been submitted showing calamine to be safe for use or effective in treating bug bites, stings & rashes from poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac.
Black Cohosh used for treating hot flashes & has shown to be just as effective as pharmaceutical estrogen. Fatty acids in flaxseed oil contain plant lignans which are similar to estrogen possibly causing estrogen levels to stabilize. Evening primrose has a cooling effect on the skin & regulates the production of estrogen while acting as a sleep aid. Drink a few cups of organic sage tea daily. Synthetic bedding/clothing contribute to over-heating the body so natural fibers are best. #dherbs
