I used chamomile for this batch, but good choices include:

  • rose petals – anti-inflammatory, astringent
  • sunflower petals – conditions skin
  • chamomile – soothes itchy skin
  • violet leaf – calms and cools, lymph health
  • dandelion – may help dry skin
  • calendula – helpful for broken or damaged skin
  • plantain – helpful for irritated or itchy skin
