Elder flowers (Sambucus nigra): Externally they are excellent on burns, sunburns, skin conditions, acne. The whole pant is cool, acrid, and bitter (Vata predominant) and therefore good for ameliorating Pitta (Fire) and Kapha (Water). Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globules): One of the most powerful antiseptics in its class. Note: Skin eruptions are often caused by dietary imbalances, either by consuming too much meat, white sugar, denatured flours, eggs, and stimulants (including spices) or by lack of wholesome foods such as whole grains, fresh vegetables, fruits, and balanced protein. Skin ailments will often follow or accompany ailments of the lung or colon.
