    Read your post and I am very impressed. I have a son who suffers from eczema and has ongoing problems with his feet and armpits. No idea why those parts of his body but it is incredibly difficult to manage. If he uses your product it may reduce the rash. Thank you so much for sharing this. Cheers Kev

      Hi Kevin, I myself have suffered fro eczema, so that is why I make all my own products. Natural products are the best way to go. I’m glad this information is helpful for you. I know first hand how awful it can be to have this rash.

    I’ve heard about grape seed oil but I had no idea it helped with so many things. Typically I use coconut oil to moisturize and freshen up my skin, but now I may have to rethink my routine and add this oil as well! Would you say that this oil is good for people with dry skin or oily skin? Or combination skin?

    • Teresa says:

      Hi Hailey, I have found grapeseed oil to be good for both dry and oily skin. It is a light oil that will not leave your skin feeling greasy. It will moisturize and help to balance the skin so can be used on all skin types.
