All things dermatological and Yin-care®’s Herbal Wash

You likely have recently purchased Yin-care®’s Herbal Wash and are curious about how Yin-care® can be used dermatologically! It’s true! Many people are recommended to use Yin-care®’s Herbal Wash dermatologically. External excess heat in the form of sunburns or bug bites are two of those ways! Here are some ways in which you may consider applying:

And here are some ideas for ways to apply!

Toe Nail Fungus

One of the biggest questions we get is how to apply to a toe nail fungus. Yin-care®’s Herbal wash is most effective if it is touching the actual affected areas. For toe nails, that means that the more surface area it touches, the better. Ideally, you will want to rough up or file the affected toe nail. Then apply a compress of Yin-care®’s herbal wash at 100%. So soak a small piece of cotton pad that will fit over that area with Yin-care®. The most cost effective way to cover the area is to wrap the compress with saran wrap. You can also use band aids, but those can get expensive. Alternatively, if you can put a sock that you don’t mind getting stained by the wash, over the affected area, then use the sock to hold the cotton pad on. Keep it on over night and remove during the day. If you can apply it as frequently as possible, keeping it on during the day as well, great. For toe nail fungi, it has to be applied often. You will notice that after a two week period it should start to subside. The best way though to be sure is to keep applying it until the nail has fully grown out out and is gone. It will stop the issue from spreading and stop it from persisting!


We love recommending creating a compress or spray for acne! if you have a persistent little spot, you can spot treat acne at 50% by applying a small compress at the 50% dilution to the affected area. Leave on for 15-60 minutes 2-3 times a day.  You can also create a 50% dilution in a spray bottle and use this spray after working out if you do not have time to wash your face. Margaret used to create this for her young teenaged kids after soccer practice as they usually would not make it home to wash their face and shower for quite some time. It definitely helped to keep the bacteria down as Yin-care®’s Herbal wash is both antibacterial and anti-microbial.


Yin-care®’s Herbal Wash can be applied at 10 – 50% strength to a sunburn. It is extremely cooling and will feel very good. If the sunburn is extreme, please use at a lesser dilution as again the essential oils within the extraction of the herbs could potentially irritate.

Bug Bites

Yin-care®’s Herbal Wash may be applied at 100% strength to any bug bites. Apply to a cotton pad and put on the affected area from 15-60 minutes 2-3 times a day until you feel relief!

How do I gauge if it’s working?

In this section, we have provided a variety of ways to apply Yin-care®’s Herbal wash to dermatological issues. For these reasons, it is very challenging to give you a firm gauge of days in which you may see resolution. We ask that you use your intuition around whether or not you feel like it is working for you and if you are concerned that it is not, we simply recommend that you  choose to work with a Chinese Medical practitioner to assess what else might be going on and what can be done.
