My legs & feet have always been my worst areas in my eczema recovery & when they start to feel a bit irritated, I bring out my trusty Bentonite Clay to give my skin some much needed attention. I apply this to dry skin, not full on oozing skin. I had some flaky areas with small dried oozed spots. My philosophy with oozing skin is to let it dry up on its own & work on deeper cleansing methods with food & natural remedies.
Here’s some info about this healing clay: Bentonite clay comes from volcanic ash & some of the largest sources of it are found in Fort Benton, Wyoming.
✅It is packed with trace minerals including calcium, magnesium, silica, sodium, copper, iron & potassium.
✅The magic lies in how it draws out the toxins & impurities in the skin (& internally when ingested) as it has the ability to produce a charge that is electrical in nature when it comes in contact with liquid, similar to how earthing (touching your bare feet to the earth; wet grass) works. When the clay touches any type of fluid (normally water), it takes on a different charge & binds to any present toxins within the fluid. When mixed with water & left to dry on the skin as a mask, it is able to bind to bacteria & toxins living on the surface of the skin & within pores. This helps to reduce the outbreak of blemishes, alleviate redness, fights against allergic reactions and even helps heal poison ivy.
✅It can act as an antibiotic treatment when applied to the skin, helping to calm skin infections, & speed up healing time of wounds.
🔹TIP: I mix 2 parts water to 1 part clay, & I use a ceramic bowl and mix with my fingers. You DON’T want to mix with metal utensils & a metal bowl as it is said that it will de-activate the magnetic charge needed to pull out the toxins. Also if you’ve been scratching the area pretty badly, applying the clay can burn. You want to let it sit about 20 min, until it’s dry, wash & pat dry. Afterwards I applied my DIY mix of coconut oil x frankincense eo x helichrysum eo for anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, discolouration & skin healing properties.

Have you seen the new documentary about eczema, topical steroid addiction and withdrawal? It’s called Preventable: Protecting Our Largest Organ and its a must watch and share! Briana has worked so hard at bringing this documentary to fruition and it’s awesome that we can give back for her efforts with the GoFundMe set up for her below! This documentary brought up so many emotions for me, it brought me back to the worst stages of my own topical steroid withdrawal process. There’s so much that the medical community needs to know about eczema and how dangerous these medications are to our health. I know that this doc is going to prevent so many from going down the awful path that thousands have gone down with these medications. This dis-ease is preventable, and steroids are not the answer, there are ways to naturally heal from the inside out…steroids only act as a band-aid and a temporary solution. Please watch, and share with anyone you know using steroids, who has eczema and those in the dermatology field. If you can, please donate to Brianna for all of her hard work and sacrifice. I see the passion that she put into this project and she deserves our support.
I’ve been loving my new Omega vsj843r Low-Speed Juicer! 🍊🍍🌿🍎🍐🍇🍏
The consistency of juice is perfect and so smooth and the clean up is super easy! It’s important to get a low-speed juicer as it ensures that the juice doesn’t oxidize and heat up where vital enzymes and nutrients can be lost. Juicing has been such a huge tool in my healing process as it’s super important to get lots of hydration from the alkaline goodness that are in plants! Juicing allows healing from the inside out because you’re getting a great dose of dense nutrients to help hydrate the old waste in the body, cleanse and heal! I notice when I juice more consistently and get a good quantity in daily, my skin feels much softer and hydrated. I love to do celery juice first thing in the morning, then move on to a fruit juice like my current fave, organic Fuji apple, and lime!
🌈Just thought of this today and wanted to share to give encouragement and a different perspective in the eczema recovery process.🌈
Having a positive, faithful mindset is so important when recovering from dis-ease. The body is so amazing at self healing, we just have to give it the right environment to thrive…alkaline plant based foods, hydration, sunlight, rest, exercise, loving words of affirmation and the right positive attitude. By saying faithful words we allow our subconscious to accept the idea that we WILL be free of dis-ease.
🌟Saying “I’m healing from eczema” tells our mind that the healing is taking place NOW! We must say the things that we want, call it into existence before it has been manifested…”I am healed”, “my skin is smooth, supple, healthy, wrinkle and symptoms free”…speak these words into existence over and over…train your mind to believe it before you see it! So when you talk to someone and they see symptoms showing up on your skin, instead of saying, “ I have eczema” say “I’M HEALING FROM ECZEMA”! Don’t own that dis-ease, stir up your faith and own the freedom of recovering from the dis-ease! 💚
💚I love having fresh herbs on hand in my kitchen, and this is the best way I’ve found in storing them! 🌿🌱🍃☘️
Simply cut off the bottoms, place in a glass cup with water and keep it in the front of the fridge. If the herbs go too far to the back they can get too cold…I’ve had herbs get accidentally pushed back too far and then when I looked for them the leaves were frozen! 😟 This simple method can keep your herbs fresh for weeks, just keep replenishing the water very few days 👍🏽. I have cilantro pictured here and I love to use it in my guacamole, salads, curries, green juices (check out the juicer I love to use HERE), soups and cooking where cilantro is called in the recipe.
Cilantro is a heavy metal detoxifier, rich in antioxidants, and has vitamins such as: vitamin A, C, K & B vitamins and minerals such as: potassium, calcium, iron, manganese, and magnesium! I also love to use parsley, mint, basil, thyme, oregano and more! What are your fave herbs to use?
This blend is soooo delicious y’all! So I freshly pressed 4 oranges (got about 16 oz) and in my vitamix I blended up half a small beet with a knob of ginger and turmeric with a little bit of water, strained it, and then added to my 🍊orange juice! I definitely saved the pulp from the beet blend and guess what…I added it to my smoothie later on of wild blueberries x dark red cherries🍒 x bananas🍌 and water….OMG it tastes amazing! Don’t waste that goodness, just throw it in a smoothie! Super rich in anti-inflammatory properties and dense nutrition!

Its healing properties ignite healing heat in a stagnant, sluggish liver resulting in less disease” info from The Medical Medium
