George: ohhh I love your plan to start with EGF/Aloe Vera. However, you would add 1/4 of the little mixed vial to ONE ounce of Aloe Vera, not two. The instructions are to put the entire vial into 4 ounces... With EGF I think it is best to follow the proper concentration. With powder actives like licorice I think starting low with rosacea is a good idea to be sure it doesn't irritate. If I were you I would put the entire vial into four ounces of your aloe vera. Aloe vera has some anti-bug properties so will keep a bit longer, especially in the fridge. I would mix it all in a container (it comes with a plastic stirring tool), and then transfer about an ounce into a little glass dropper bottle. This way you can close the lid on the bulk of it for later use/mixing and it will stay fresh. You can then use the dropper bottle daily (keep in the fridge) and refill as needed.

Then later if you decide to add sea kelp, I would add maybe 1/2 teaspoon per ounce or so. Many use it straight, so as much or as little as your skin likes is the rule.

Remember, while many like sea kelp, you can always react so go slow.

Well, that's what I would do anyway

Thanks Artist.  Hopefully the egf will do some good so by the time I use up 2 oz. of the aloe vera, I wont have to worry about reacting to the sea kelp ;-)

Hi,

 

I have been using sea kelp for about 3 weeks or so, and have mixed a pinch of liquorice in a small amount.  For the past couple of weeks I have been having a major problem with p and p's on my chin, mostly.  Do you think that what I am using is causing this problem?  Thanks, Sue

It could be that the straight sea kelp is too drying for your skin. Dry rosacea skin is more prone to breakouts. I must moisturize with sea kelp, and I use it sparingly. Do you moisturize with it? I would stop it and see what happens. Maybe your skin doesn't agree with sea kelp or licorice.

How much licorice did you use? You might cut back on the amount if you think the licorice is the culprit. For rosacea skin I like just 1/8 teaspoon mixed into two fat tablespoons of base. This works very well for me. Cheers!
