Hoppitt415 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default base lotions

Has anyone any experience of making their own homeopathic creams and lotions?
What is the best base to use ?

Thanks for that
I looked at aqueous but some seem to have lots of additives.
I want something that is pure with no animals involved !!

Petroleum jelly is mineral oil based and not natural, so if you were looking for a good base to put a homeopathic remedy in, I would suggest something a little more holistic, such as a vegetable based cream or oil.
There are all sorts available such as vegetable based sorbelene, coconut oils, etc. even sweet almond oil or olive oil is a good carrier.
Try an aromatherapy supplier as they often use non mineral oil based or acqueous creams that would be compatible with remedies.

Hi,

Look at coconut oil, or check out olive oil, liquid though it might be.

Warmly, Maria

Petroleum not "natural"? Of course it is, it occurs as a "natural" substance...whether the result of vegetable/animal decomposition or (fill in your theory here) it is not un-natural.

if you are going apply a remedy topically, why would you put it in a base that is not inert?
Petroleum is a remedy for skin conditions and as you can see from the link, it can cause skin irritation is susceptible persons.
I know that it has been used by many people to help their skin conditions, such as chapped hands,nappy rash and the like, but how can you be sure that it doesn't interfere with the action of a homeopathic remedy? Surely this is against the principles of classical homeopathy.
