The Best Herbs for Eczema & Skin Irritations

So many people are affected by eczema and skin irritations today with little to no remedies derived from natural ingredients. Over the years the medical industry has offered a number creams and chemical mixtures that are meant to treat the condition just enough to keep patients coming back, but never address the other underlying issues that contribute to eczema.

Eczema starts internally. Our nervous system pushes toxins to the skin and surviving microbes scar the skin by producing a layer of defense. Skin care needs minerals and oxygen. Dairy is scary so avoid dairy products because it will only contribute to an already dire condition. Eat healthy, lots of fresh fruits and veggies. Limit your meats and processed foods. A vegan or plant based diet is best.

I want to share with you this blend of herbs for a topical soothing skin bath using this combination of roots and herbs for overall improvement of skin conditions and maintaining healthy skin:

Burdock Root / Arctium lappa
Linden / Tillia cordata Mill
Nettle / Urtica dioica
Oregano / Origanum vulgare
Thyme / Thymus vulgaris

Mix 3 tablespoons of each and pour over 1 liter of boiling water. Let steep for a couple of hours and strain out herbs/root. Add to a hot bath and soak yourself in this fragrant bath for about 15/20 min.

For more serious, concentrated areas use the burdock root in a coffee grinder to make a powder and add coconut, hemp oil or water to make a paste.
Apply the paste to affected area and wrap in gauze for 15 to 20 mins then remove and wipe clean. Repeat twice a day.

Avoid ALL dairy products and refined sugar. Get a minimum of 15 mins of direct sunlight on the affected area and consume 64 oz to 1 gallon spring water each day.
