A Natural Cure For Eczema………..

Juice Diet For Perfect HealthTaken from the book Juice Diet for Perfect Health by Dr D R Gala, De Dhiran Gala and Dr Sanjay Gala – a fantastic book that I have.

“Take a mixture of juices of carrot and spinach with the juice of mixed leafy vegetables. Juice of potato, papaya and watermelon can also be taken. Besides that, potato juice may be rubbed externally on the affected skin.”

Natural Remedy for a cold or flu

We all go down when a cold or the flu hits us. So here are a few natural remedies that can help. If you are susceptible to a cold or flu, print this off and keep it in a safe place, ready for you to act on when you get hit.

A cup of Honey, Lemon and Ginger – by my Mum.

Add a big spoon of honey into the cup, add the juice of half a fresh lemon and grate a big lump of ginger. Squeeze the juice out and add it to the cup. Boil some water and fill up the cup. Give it a good stir and drink it once it has cooled a bit. Do this 3 or four times a day. The ingredients will destroy the germs and sooth you. (I would never take this in packet form. Its doesn’t take much of an effort to make this and I know what I have put into it. )

If it’s too bitter, add a bit more honey.

Olbas Oil

I swear buy this stuff and it’s 100% natural. This is what they say about the ingredients on their website –

We can’t take all the credit for Olbas – it was mother nature’s idea (as lots of the best ideas are). Olbas is a special mixture of pure plant oils, with ingredients including clove oil, eucalyptus, juniper berry and cajuput. It’s the combination of these natural ingredients which releases those famously soothing and relieving vapours. It’s the power of nature, you could say.

Sore Throat

To alleviate a sore throat, gargle with warm salt water. Do it as much as you can. It will not harm you but it will sooth you.

 Vitamin C

Long proven to aid in a cold or flu situation. Either eat lots of oranges and kiwis, or liquidise them and drink the juice. If juiced, drink it immediately as the more it interacts with air, the more it looses it’s potency.

A Natural Cure for: Dandruff and Dry Skin

These are really simple methods that have worked for me. There is always an alternative.


For a flaky scalp or flaky or dry skin, use oils to replenish and nourish yourself. I have found Almond Oil and Coconut Oils to be the best for both hair and skin. Although you can use any kind of oil that states that it is suitable for the skin.  

Hair – pour Almond oil onto your head and rub it in – give yourself a head massage at the same time – its lovely. Add it to the ends. Make sure you have a good layer all over. If you can, leave it in all night – this gives it more time to work its magic. You will probably need to add a towel onto your pillow or use an old pillow as it will soil your bedsheets.

With Coconut Oil, its solidifies so you can warm it up in a pan or in the microwave and apply it in the same way.

You may need to apply shampoo a few times to get it all out – that’s fine, do what you need to but make sure it is all out. And then just feel the difference. Your hair will feel lustful, soft, shiny and naturally beautiful.



oil2Dry Skin – no one should have to tolerate dry skin. No one should have to spend loads of money on lotions and potions that have ingredients that are a mystery to you. So after your shower, with it still running and after you have cleaned your skin, apply the oil. Rub it all over your skin. Get out of the shower and towel dry your skin. There should be a residue on your skin. This is normal. (If you wear silks or fabrics that will absorb oils, then you can get dry oil that won’t soil your clothes.) Your skin will immediately feel and look fabulous. This feeling is addictive so once you start doing it, you will continue doing it.

Oils don’t come in practical containers for this so buy a dispenser (not the coconut oil because it solidifies remember)and put the oil into that. Keep it in your bathroom to remind you to put it on regularly. You can also pour a few capfuls into a hot/warm bath – it will give you your supple skin back.

Oils cost a few pounds at the most and the effects are massive. You can buy them in most Convenience Stores/Indian Shops/Supermarkets in your local area. Try it. You will never go back.

soaps1On a final note, I would like to promote soap. Natural soap is the best way to clean your skin. Shower gels are the biggest con around. Just because they lather, that doesn’t mean they clean your skin. You will feel the difference in your own skin, you don’t need me to tell you. Your skin will be squeeky clean after a wash with pretty much any kind of soap.

I go to TK Maxx and buy beautiful soaps with beautiful fragrances that are a great start to my day, everyday.

Thanks for the pic.
