Wow saw my description and realized how long it's been since I updated it. I'll just make the bday changes for now and update everything else as I can. LOVES <3 Just a couple of things you really need to know. I'm a girl, turned 21 in June. I'm a green witch (don't know what that is? ask) NOT wiccan, there is a difference. I'm Bi. If any of these things really bother you then you really should not follow me. They are a part of me and I don't hide them. I don't take my cues from TV shows on how to behave. Honestly I hardly watch any TV. I'm to busy living life to bother watching others pretend to. I am me. I speak my mind. When I love, I love with all my heart. I protect my friends and those I love.
As for following back. No, I do not always follow back. If I see something on your blog that catches my eye, chances are I will follow you. Please feel free to ask me to look. Oh an no I don't bite so feel free to leave a message.

Ten Herbs You Can Use As An Eczema Treatement

Herbs can be used as an eczema traitement. Nowadays, many of them are even incorporated in topical applications like creams and ointments, as well as in supplements which you can take during an eczema outbreak. Following is a list of ten herbs which are used as eczema traitements and why they’re helpful for eczema.

Chamomile. Chamomile is a flower plant whose flowers are often used in teas, creams, and skin care products. It can be used as an eczema traitement because it has anti-anxiety, antihistamine, and anti-inflammatory properties. Stress-related eczema outbreaks could benefit from chamomile’s anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory properties. Meanwhile, allergy-related eczema could benefit from its antihistamine and anti-inflammatory properties. All types of eczema, however, can be treated by chamomile solely by its natural anti-inflammatory properties.

Oatstraw. Oatstraw belongs to the haygrass family. Because of its nourishing effects on the skin, it can be used as an eczema traitement. Aside from this, oatstraw also has anti-inflammatory properties like chamomile. It also has the ability to relieve inflamed and irritated skin which is a common symptom shared by different types of eczema.

Marshmallow. Marshmallow root comes from the plant Althaea officinalis which is a plant that comes from the Mallow family. It is often used to treat coughs and disorders of the urinary tract. However, marshmallow root can also be used as an eczema traitement for skin inflammation. Its flowers can also be crushed and placed on eczema rashes for a soothing sensation. An alternative would be to boil the flowers in water and to wash your rashes with the water once it cools off.

Turmeric. Turmeric is a part of the Ginger family and has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat liver and gallbladder conditions. It is also used as an eczema traitement because of its anti-inflammatory properties. In addition, Turmeric also relieves pain that sometimes come with eczema rashes. The herb also speeds up the healing of eczema rashes. Moreover, Turmeric is an anti-fungal. This makes it especially useful for sebaceous dermatitis related to the proliferation of the fungi Malassezia on the scalp and skin.

Rosemary. Rosemary obviously has a soothing effect on the skin since it belongs to the Mint family. But as an eczema traitement, its most important property is that promotes circulation. By promoting blood circulation, Rosemary acts an eczema traitement by speeding up the healing of eczema rashes. Skin inflammation will quickly subside when using Rosemary as an eczema traitement.

Aloe Vera. Aloe Vera is one of the most commonly used eczema traitement. Even before its use as an eczema traitement, it was already used to treat skin burns and wounds. What makes Aloe Vera a great eczema traitement is that it relieves skin inflammation. Thus, you can expect your rashes to subside with regular use. Aloe Vera also has a soothing effect on the skin. Therefore, it relieves the itchiness of eczema rashes which in turn helps prevent them from getting worse.

Oregon Grape Root. Oregon Grape root isn’t a common eczema traitement but that doesn’t make it any useful. In fact, it is very useful for eczema that’s related to allergies and to toxin buildup in the body. Oregon Grape root acts as an eczema traitement by clearing the body of toxins that accumulated over years of having an unhealthy diet. Through detoxification, your eczema rashes will get better and you will suffer from less eczema outbreaks in the long run.

Burdock Root. The roots of a Burdock plant is an effective eczema traitement. It has anti-inflammatory properties which are most useful for all types of inflammatory conditions, including eczema. Like Oregon Grape root, Burdock root also has detoxifying effects making it useful for eczema caused by allergies and toxin buildup.

Chickweed. Chickweed is the most overlooked herbal eczema traitement. That’s because it’s only a garden weed that grows in many parts of the world. The saponins that chickweed contains is especially useful for burning eczema rashes, helping relieve their itchiness and alleviate your discomfort.

Calendula. Calendula is also an herbal eczema traitement you can try. Its bright yellow flowers are useful for skin conditions like dermatitis and eczema. Calendula helps soothe red and inflamed skin associated with eczema and dermatitis. It also prevents flaking and itching of the scalp which is a symptom of sebaceous dermatitis, a specific type of eczema.

Whitewolf’s ‘Hot Lemon, Orange & Honey Miracle Drink’ - Cold Buster!

1 or 2 Oranges
2 or 3 Lemons
1 Tsp Honey
2 or 3 Cloves
Cinnamon Stick
(Ginger)*
Water

Squeeze the juice from the Oranges and Lemons and place in a saucepan. Cut up the rinds and remaining fruit flesh and add to the saucepan. Add up to half a cup of water and bring to the boil. Turn the heat down to simmer and add the Honey, stirring well. Bruise the Cloves and add them to the mix, along with the Cinnamon stick. Simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring [and squishing the fruit remains/rinds] occasionally. Remove the fruit rinds, cloves and cinnamon stick and pour the liquid into a mug. Don’t strain out the small fleshy pulpy bits - leave these in and drink them up too! 
The best sore throat and cold buster drink I know - and very yummy!! [The number and ratio of Oranges / Lemons can be altered to suit your taste - as can the quantity of water - I generally use less than half a cup of water, I like my drink to be quite strong].
*A little ginger root can be added at the same time as the cinnamon stick - or sprinkle on a little ground ginger to taste.
