I absolutely adore this healing balm! It has so many uses which makes it definitely serve a load of purposes. You can put it on dry, itchy skin or eczema, scrapes, etc. The smell isn't too strong which is great and it doesn't have a medicine smell to it. It's more like a soft oatmeal smell. Another thing I love about this balm is that you can put it on and then have your hands moisturized well afterwards. Often times creams that are prescribed from doctors are very oily and make you look like you have a thick film over your skin. However, this product does not do that!
