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!
💚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?

🌱🧡HEMP OIL RAFFLE!!🧡🌱 I will be doing a raffle for USA peeps from Dec 14-21 for participants to win a bottle of my favourite nano-enhanced liposomal hemp oil/cbd oil! I love this product so much & I love sharing it with others. It’s been such a blessing in my eczema recovery process as it has reduced my inflammation & itch, gives me deeper more rested sleep, it’s calmed down my high stress & anxiety giving me more peace, I have more mental focus & clarity & even better digestion! I WISH I had this in my arsenal in the earliest stages of topical steroid withdrawal when I was in such pain in my body that I would rarely get a good nights rest…literally seeing the sun come up, not having slept a wink. Anxiety & depression was so high, it would be so hard to get through each day. When in such a heightened state of detox it’s so important for your body to be in the parasympathetic mode (where healing can finally take place) which is “rest, repair & digest” which is what this hemp oil helps to do as it replenishes our endocannibinoid system & balances out the nervous, endocrine & immune systems. It takes us out of that sympathetic mode aka “fight or flight” & brings us into perfect homeostasis. This oil is so unique because of the liposomal delivery system, making it 6x more absorbable and 90% more bioavailable than other oils out there, remember “we are what we absorb!” Because of this high absorption rate, you don’t need a lot to get the desired effect, 4 pumps a day is all you need! This is a $130 value!
