Natural Herbs for Treating Eczema
Eczema is a common skin condition and a large percentage of these Eczema sufferers are children. There are many creams for eczema, some natural and some that may be prescribed. As a natural remedy for eczema, creams are perhaps one of the most common treatments. At least the very least they do not contain chemicals and have no side effects.
Of recent there has been considerable research on Hemp Seed oil as a treatment for Eczema. Hempseed oil is an exceptional source of EFAs; the essential fatty acids that we must obtain from our daily diet because, like vitamins, we can’t produce them on our own.
Judging from the fatty acid profile of Hempseed oil, and the results of clinical investigations, Hempseed oil is considered one of the healthiest oil on the market and recently thought to benefit as a remedy for Eczema.
GLA, which stands for gamma-linolenic acid is a naturally occurring fatty acid. Lack of GLA in the diet has been thought to be associated with allergies and a compromised immune system.
Supplementation with products containing EFAs has been found capable of reversing scaly skin disorder, inflammation, prevent drying, itch, and poor wound healing caused by EFA deficiency.
GLA which is found in Hemp Seed oil has been shown to be beneficial natural treatment for atopic eczema and psoriasis.
Hemp Seed can be taken internally; the oil has a pleasant nutty flavour and can be used in salads or can even be ingested with a liquid. It can also be used externally by applying it on the affected area. It may not work for everyone but is worth a try and taken internally it is very healthy oil for many health benefits.
Our Eczmaid ointment, which is a herbal cream for Eczema contains Hemp Seed oil as one of the ingredients formulated with the renowned Chickweed known for treating eczema the natural way.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
