🌺My friend Zakiya from high school reached out to me awhile back with concerns about her daughter Renèe’s skin. I’m so glad that she’s doing so much better these days!🌈
You can scroll through to see her story and photos. She didn’t have many before photos, but the one that is shared you can see different discoloured patches on her belly. Zakiya was so gracious to send an email of support to another mother named Ibie who I’m helping with her two children experiencing eczema as well. I hope Reneè’s testimony can give you hope about healing baby eczema 🌸
***I’m not a medical professional but a wellness advocate, and through this website & social media platforms ( INSTAGRAM & FACEBOOK ) people reach out to me and I offer support, advice and tips of what has helped me over the years (26 yrs of steroid use and now 9 yrs free of ts)☺️
I receive emails & messages from people all over the world just from checking out my social media: INSTAGRAM & FACEBOOK and this website. I like to share my experience with what natural remedies that have helped me over the years of healing from eczema & I also send out a health questionnaire to those needing support. Veronique from Singapore reached out to me asking for some support & tips & it’s so awesome to see her healing progress! She also attributed using essential oils (which I highly recommend) as to what has been helping her skin! (The PODCAST she mentioned.)

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.
For the EOs that I use, you can purchase them HERE at my store site!

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.
