Guest Post on the Eczema Itch

16 Ways to Combat Eczema Itch with Natural Eczema Treatments

I recently did a guest post for Prime Physique Nutrition on the awful eczema itch and ways that we can help the symptoms. Shout to Abby for letting me contribute to her wonderful website!

Healing from the inside out is most important when tacking eczema and all of the horrendous symptoms that come along with it. Focusing on diet and detoxification is key, I cannot stress it enough. When the body is cleansed from the inside out and in a more alkaline state, the diseases we are plagued with cannot thrive! 🙂

Additional Info with the Guest Post:

The Calming Bath Treatment is mentioned in number 4 in the post and I personally find it very soothing when I soak with it. It leaves the skin smooth and hydrated because of the healthy, natural moisturizing ingredients in it.

The Conqueror Soothing Dry Skin Balm is mentioned in number 7 and I also loves this product as it smells divine, gives the skin a well-hydrated feel without feeling too heavy. and a little goes a long way with it.

***More info on my Suggested Moisturizers and Soaps

Essential oils are mentioned in number 16 and I have a blog post where I specifically talk about the natural antihistamine blend HERE with my store site link in the post as well. I love this blend and product because of how effective it is and how it always gives me a calming relief in such a short time. It can really knock out any allergy issues and calm down an itch fest. Another blend that is effective is my Sleepy Time Diffuser Blend which can give calming relief and restful sleep. Diffusing that blend and taking the natural antihistamine blend is like a one-two punch for effective rest for eczema sufferers.

I hope all of these tips have helped! If anyone needs coaching support, want to just reach out, want to vent or need advice…please feel free to contact me via email: eczema.holistic.healing@gmail.com I’m always happy to hear from my readers and get you the support that you need! ❤ -Jen

Sleepy Time EO Diffuser Blend

My favourite essential oil blend to diffuse at night for restful sleep is a mix of Lavender, Roman Chamomile & Vetiver. I will sometimes just take the bottle of Lavender & inhale to give me a calm, soothing effect if needed & if you put 3 drops of Lavender eo in a veggie cap (with an edible carrier oil like coconut oil) you can take this as a sleep remedy without the side-effects.

You can purchase the same high quality therapeutic & food grade oils that I use and sell from my store site: CLICK HERE 

Also check out more info on their wonderful sourcing practices: HERE

Here’s some info from Dr.Z (eo specialist):

“Essential oils are transdermal (meaning they penetrate the skin) & work on the body’s physiology in a variety of ways. This means that you can affect your body’s biochemistry when applying them topically in a similar way as when taking them internally or inhaling them via diffusion. As research suggests, topical application may actually be one of the most effective methods for people with sleep disorders as the chemical components of lavender have been shown to enter the blood stream within 5 minutes of massaging the oil on the skin. The calming & relaxing effects of lavender essential oil have a one-two punch when applied topically because of the direct aromatic benefit on the brain when the volatile organic compounds are inhaled & through the skin! The 1992 study that proved this, also uncovered that maximum concentration levels were observed within 20 min. Don’t worry, it’s not like the sedative properties last forever. Within 90 min most of the lavender was eliminated.”

My #1 Eczema “Ooze” Remedy

This is seriously the most effective remedy that I’ve done for that awful eczema ooze, HANDS DOWN! I so wish I had found out about it in my early incredibly awful stages of topical steroid withdrawal where I had open wounds and ooze literally dripping down my legs and feet as well as a light covering over my cheeks, sometimes coming out of my ears, light coverings on my legs and stomach. As time went on the ooze pretty much stayed from my legs down with the occasional face ooze.

Before TSW I never experienced the ooze as intense before. It would seem to happen in my scalp sometimes, and on my face and ears if I had been drinking a lot of alcohol the night before. When I started to experience it during TSW it was for me the absolute worst symptom in the whole process. I would stick to my sheets at night and the awful smell that it produced would make me feel so sick. When my skin oozes, I tend to leave it be to do it’s thing, dry up on it’s own, crust and fall off. I’ve found that applying anything to it like coconut oil and turmeric (which is an effective remedy on dry skin and cuts) or even washing it just made it ooze more.

This is what itsan.org defines as the ooze (this was from their Q & A section). 
Ooze/ Serous Exudate – A fluid the skin produces during Topical Steroid Withdrawal with a high content of protein and cellular debris which has escaped from blood vessels and has been deposited in tissues or on tissue surfaces, usually as a result of inflammation.  

Q: What is the liquid that oozes out of my body?

A: This liquid is called serous exudate. Most going through Topical Steroid Withdrawal just call it ooze. It is thought to be the “interstitial” fluid that is pushed out when blood vessels are dilated. It may cover your skin in a thin, sticky layer or you may see small blisters form and collect this fluid.

The first time I tried this remedy was when I came down to stay with my mother in Florida. She is all about using essential oils for all kinds of illnesses and suggested that I take it in a capsule form. I did  3 drops, diluted with fractionated coconut oil in a veggie cap and took them every 5 hours (you should only take up to 24 drops of EO’s a day). This remedy is powerful and shouldn’t be done more than 10-14 days (take a week off and if needed do another 10-14 days). I like to do this for 7 days on 7 days off if I need to, but it’s so powerful I never got up to 7 days. Within the next day I noticed the ooze drying up and by the second or third day it was totally done. I was pretty amazed at the progress! That was truly the last time I experienced terrible oozing and from then on whenever I’d flare it would be minor oozing and I’d do the oregano oil capsule and only really need to do it for a few days! Sometimes I would add frankincense essential oil for extra anti inflammatory properties. If I was also in pain with aching, tingling, never pain, etc I would add marjoram, lemongrass and frankincense essential oils. This remedy is known as the “morphine bomb” and is very effective at reliving the pain. I would even apply these oils to the soles of my feet when my the tops of my feet had that intense throbbing, aching, burning pain and within 10 minutes the pain subsides! I highly recommend taking oregano oil internally to combat the ooze symptoms of eczema, along with a healthy cleansing diet, hydrating a lot throughout the day (drinking half your weight in oz of water daily) and plenty of rest. You can also implement deep cleansing methods like fasting, enemas and colonics.

If you are interested in getting the veggie capsules and any of the oils that I mentioned, a diffuser and more, you can purchase them from my store site and help support my small family business! 🙂 DoTerra’s oils are highly regarded for it’s purity & quality as they are food grade (only take EO’s internally if they are food grade and have the “supplemental facts” info on the bottle and come from a trusted source) and they are never ever diluted with zero fillers or preservatives. Not all oils are created equal as some brands will dilute the oil and not use the first distilation process. DoTerra oils always use the first distilation process, meaning it’s of the highest grade and potency. Essential oils are concentrated plant based medicine, as it can take as many as 1000 pounds of the plant to produce just 1 pound of oil!

Recipe! – Turmeric Paste

Let’s talk about Turmeric! I love this wonderful spice and have been using it all of my life and for the most part didn’t even know it! I grew up in a Caribbean household and we had vibrant yellow curry dishes for dinner many times. The distinctive golden hue would be in our yellow split pea dahl with rice, or our curried green beans and as the sauce to the chickpea and potato fillings for rotis. It wasn’t until later in life did I realize how medicinal this spice is and how it can be used for more than just cooking!

It’s 2017 y’all!!!

Fireworks of various colors bursting against a black background

So we’re a little over a week now into the new year! How has it been treating you all?! I for one (probably like most people) was happy to see 2016 go. It’s been a rough year for sure, but I’ve learned a lot and was pushed out of my comfort zone many times, forcing me to grow.
