Does anyone know where I can buy this as it seems to be working wonders on my dd's spots. My friend lent me some which she got from Spain and I would like to replace it.

I have googled it and it seems to used in aromatherapy and LUSH soaps but haven't found anywhere I can buy it.

Thank you

I got some powder from a pharmacy in France a couple of years ago when DS1 got chickenpox on holiday...I don't actually know what the active ingredient was, but it worked wonders. It was in a blue tube with white writing. I can't remember the name (sorry!) and I haven't seen anything here which looks the same. My Dad, who's a vet, suggested it might be the equivilent of Mange (sp?) powder for dogs!
