One of my many hobbies is homemade lip products! I actually just started a couple days ago and it's addicting!
I used common weeds. Plaintain, comfrey, burdock and yarrow. In the beginning I would just take the leaf and smoosh it up until it was juicy and schmear it on my hand. It turned my skin green and weird, but I just didn't care. I have plaintain, burdock and yarrow in my yard, and I planted comfrey.Roslyn, what's the treatment for eczema? I have a friend who has s very bad case, and two other friends with small patches. A holistic treatment would be outstanding.
Plaintain is the go to for bee stings, insect bites, cuts etc. It sucks out pain very fast. My husband was on a construction site and his work buddy cut himself. Hubbie went out in the parking lot and found plaintain growing in the cracks and mushed it up for him. He thought my husband was NUTS, but he put the goopy plant on the cut and then couldn't believe how fast the pain went. They went back to work, no ligament, no band aid. You could hardly see the cut by evening.I have plaintain up everywhere. I'll have to look for the rest. Thank you!
Oh, have you watched Joe Cross in Fatsickandnearlydead? He cures his eczema by juicing. Also helps someone else do the same. FYI
