Detox bath for eczema & the whole family

I LOVE a good bath!!! Who doesn’t??? Soaking away in a warm bath, relaxing your body & your muscles, reading a book, having a wine, or just simply closing your eyes & having some alone time. I suggest not drinking while having a detox bath but go for it any other time¬†ūüôā I have a…

Changing diet to help eczema.

Please seek medical advise before changing yours or your children’s diet. We have seen Doctors, Allergists, Dieticians & Naturopaths before¬†our big change.

Food effecting eczema

You know its funny, Doctors and allergists told us not to avoid any foods & that if Lakyn did react to food, eczema wouldn’t kill him. Also said “It was a bit silly to deprive him of such foods.” For about three¬†months Lakyn had a clear runny nose, coughing and puffy eyes. I had been…

Soap over detergent for dish, laundry and bath.

Often after being woken up in the middle of the night from Lakyn’s itchy flares I would try to find natural solutions to heal his eczema, what had helped others, or what made others flare. There were so many different things that had worked for others but had not worked for someone else. So many…
