4. Skin Soothing Plants
Plant-based treatments using aloe vera, turmeric and green tea have been used for centuries. You can grow your own aloe vera plant indoors, snapping off just what you need to relieve the sting of burns or for general skin conditioning. Other plant-based treatments such as basil, chamomile, tea tree oil and lavender can be obtained in your local natural foods stores or at a farmers’ market.
