A skin disorder that flies below the wire. Can be irritating. So whats to do?
Understanding why you get it. Good start. Can be triggered by this and that and blahdie blahdie BLAH!
WHY. Because your skin is a reflection of your internal health status. Your gut is upset, you might have acne on your face. Your hormones are out of balance, you might have breakouts under the chin. You don’t drink enough water, your skin might be scaly. Even the wrinkles on your face tell a story!
My middle son Kai has a list of issues that we have been working with. Since birth. So when a new one came around, a patch of skin that turns out to be ECZEMA, I was like…REALLY? Another thing.
We work REAL hard to keep the allergies and asthma/heart stuff in check, so I was thinking, “OK. His nutritional status is exceptional. So the eczema solution might not be in the nutrition department.”
Then I looked in my bathroom cupboard filled with wonderful things. And spied on what I used on my face for acne that helps me a TON.
Tea tree and lavender mixed one to one. These are Young Living Essential Oils, as I value the quality. You might ask why they work?
Food is medicine. Plants are medicine.
Tea Tree (Melaleuca): antimicrobial, antibacterial, anti fungal, antiviral = GOOOOOD Stuff.
Lavender: antiseptic, pain reliever = GOOOOOD Stuff too. And smells wonderful. Very calming.
So for Kai’s spot of eczema. Worked like a charm. Week or so of 2 applications a day. Presto. And STRONG encouragement not to itch. 🙂
If you want to try it. Give me a shout. You can purchase the oils through me or I can make up some to try.
These two together = FIRST AIDE.
