I took a lotion bottle with a pump dispenser and emptied the contents. Rinsed out the bottle and used a funnel to put in some baking soda. I added regular tap water and it looks like milk. When the eczema on my face first broke out I used this twice a day on my face. It burns at first, but it really dries it up. After 2 days my face looked so much better that I wasn't ashamed to go out anywhere. By the 4th day it was completely gone! I also used Hydrogen Peroxide after washing my face in the baking soda. Just used a cotton ball to apply the HP. It burned too, but not so much that it couldn't be handled. I am still washing my face in the baking soda but only once a day now and it doesn't burn since I have no break out of the eczema. It has also dried up all my pimples. Why I didn't do this before I'll never know. This site has been a life saver, with lots of wonderful, natural cures to life's ailments. Thanks a million!


Baking Soda

Baking Soda on my face cured scaliness and little bumps as well as the itchiness. I just thought it was age so I started using baking soda to gently exfoliate my face every other day. It improved my skin dramatically! I found your site researching why my scalp, arms, torso and legs are so freaking itchy and believe they are all related. As I am highly allergic to most shampoos, I will be trying tea tree oil in some very gentle (baby) shampoo free of colorants, fragrances, cones and parabens on my scalp and baking soda in my body wash followed by bit of tea tree oil in my moisturizer for the rest of my poor itchy skin. (Ironically, my diet and nutrition is already spot on to your advice). I thought about using the baking soda on my scalp but I think it would be a hassle both getting it down to my scalp as well as rinsing it back off (I have very thick hair). If I could ever remember to do the ACV rinse, I am sure things would be better still. I have done this in the past and it leaves my hair very, very soft but seriously hate the smell.
