My latest herbal remedy

Post by Stormy » Mon May 10, 2004 9:20 am

Eureka! I have finally concocted a "cure" for my eczema. I say "cure" because, really, eczema is not curable as it is an immune problem.

I have been to many docs over the years and tried a lot of meds - I only get the darn stuff in one very unpleasant place - the inside of my ears. When the weather gets warm and humid it gets really bad - pain and nastiness. It has caused numerous major ear infections which have been the cause of my partial hearing loss (that and my stubborn refusal to go to the doc :oops: ). None of their "cures" worked very well, many I had reactions to and they were expensive. Now, after all this, a very simple mixture has shown vast improvement in the condition in just two days.

Drum roll..............



Sweet Almond Oil - 90 to 95% of mix

Tea Tree Oil - 5 - 10% of mix



Apply with cotton swab and instant relief from the itching, in two days, vast improvement in the skin condition and no more pain.



Thought I'd share this just in case anyone else is having a problem with eczema.

Try pulling out 5% of the almond and replacing it with witch hazel (also a good strong pepermint goes well with tea tree).

part of it is knowing the properties of herbs, another part is talking to other hebal healers and final part is experimentation

And that about says how I figured out it works ;) I've been trying various herbs and oils which were known to have healing effects on skin and/or antimicrobial and antibiotic properties as well as astringent properties. Since I've been working with herbs for many years as medicinal ingredients I can pretty well know what it's gonna do or not. Then you've just got to take that deep breath and either slap some on or chug it down :P

well, there's always the d&d players method...



mark all herbs with a number then pull out one of the character dice. First roll is for how many herbs will be used. After that, one roll for each herb. Number from the die == one of the numbered herbs.



ROFL... in reality I would advise highly against doing such, but it's a funny thought for those of us who are into herbs, especially for healing and such.

I was picturing a d20 or d13 when I wrote that, heh heh.



sorry Wbdsr, I wasn't even thinking about that issue when I posted, was just shooting for a laugh from the others whom are into herbs.

Old school D&D, Man I got so much stuff for that, and we still play when we can find time and interested people. Pre-second edition rocks!



On the herbal note I intend to study in-depth in this field for obvious reasons. Any suggestions are welcome,I have a couple of books already.
