I use to apply Clarkia on pimples or some little red spots (future pimples)as soon as they appear. It helps greatly. I apply it as it is by cotton disk on clean skin before going to bed. The pimples are almost gone in the morning. It stops inflamation immediately.
It helps also when you suffer from vaginal Candida, when it gets very irritating and paiful. I mix Clarkia with pure mineral water 50\50 to get about two dropperfuls of the final product. Then I apply it locally from the dropper. You may get some slight short time feeling of burning. Itching stops immediately. It is good to use something to protect your underwear.
My husband suffered one evening from slight ear inflammation. Ears inside were painful and itchy. We put two drops of Clarkia in each ear. He felt little burning for a while, and good relief soon after. The next morning there was no more problem with ears.
