Lily oil is extracted from Lillium candidum, also known as White Lily. Its constituents, polysaccharides and saponins, grant it anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. Polysaccharides further render it an emollient. Thus it makes an excellent moisturizer for irritated, sensitive or dry skin; while enhancing skin’s elasticity. The anti-septic property of lily oil makes it beneficial to treat rashes and eczema. The oil also smoothes the skin, as it reduces accumulation of dead skin cells. Also an anti-oxidant, lily oil promotes tissue regeneration, along with healing of ulcers, wounds, scalds and burns, without scar formation; as well as in treating rashes. It is even known to relieve pain associated with burns and ease contracted tendons.
