I mix 3% topical hydrogen peroxide with salt and a little bubble bath as a wetting agent and apply it to my skin. This has been incredible! With the added salt it is absorbed into the body, but does not burn the skin at all. It seems like the salt should make it burn more, but it helps the body absorb it and does not burn the skin. Even if it gets into a cut with the salt and wetting agent it does not hurt anywhere near as much as straight hydrogen peroxide. I first started using it to treat a facial condition, but I was so impressed with the results that I began using it on larger areas of my body. Now about once a month I mix about a half pint of this solution and sponge bath my entire body with it. I have been doing this for about two years with no adverse results, and my body seems to have a more youthful appearance. I believe it kills a wide range of organisms that reside within the body, yet does not harm the body's own cell tissue. I know it sounds wacky, but I believe that anyone who tries this treatment will be amazed by the results.

I cant believe that Americans do not know about 100% natural Irish Peat mask for treating eczema. psoriasis, acne. The Irish Peat mask is the best because Ireland has the only raised bogs in the world. It only takes a little research. There is countless studies in Europe from Labs Professors, University's all over. Peat is one of the most potent natural healing Substances. Its not hard to get it here in America now. I am not in a position to let a lot of people know about this But maybe you are drug Companys will hate you for it Kindest Regards Pat O carroll

Hi, I'm new to this website, I have to apply a mosituriser on my penis head and inner foreskin a couple of times a week to keep it hydrated and stop dry skin building up. Im only comfortable using natural products, and bought some Jojoba oil and was wondering if this is safe to use to moisturise the area? Thanks.


Jojoba Oil

The best thing for beautiful glowing skin is jojoba oil. I used to use coconut oil and that was fantastic for a while. But jojoba oil is finer and absorbs more readily into the skin. I've also been told about rosehip oil, but I haven't tried that yet. I might give it a go if I can find any.

As for the jojoba oil, it's made my skin smooth, wrinkle free and the rosacea around my nose and chin has disappeared. Plus if I get the odd pimple at "that time of the month", the jojoba oil gets rid of it within a couple of days without it becoming a horrible whitehead pustule. That is, if the pimples actually even show up at all!

I use it on my neck too. I'm 41 now and I definitely don't want the "turkey neck" look that so many women get at my age. It's working because I have no excess skin there at all - just smooth beautiful skin and people can't believe it when I tell them my age.

I also use sunscreen every day without fail over the top of the jojoba oil. Prevention is still better than cure after all. I bought mine from the health food store and it's cheaper and lasts longer than any commercially prepared product. Plus, it's all natural and that's the biggest drawcard for me. I'm not interested in putting chemicals on my face any more.

Jojoba oil is also really good for treating eczema and psoriasis. And it's a beautiful hand moisturiser as well. Absorbs immediately with no greasy after feel. Try it, you'll love it.


Korean Glove

I've been going to one of the Korean spas in Koreatown once a week for the past month, mostly to dunk in the hot and cold baths that they have. One of the daily rituals that I noticed the elderly Korean women at the spa do is to to scrub their skin vigorously, every inch of it, with one of those cheap exfoliating gloves (sold in asian markets for $2). Their skin looks incredible, very youthful. I decided to try it at home and every day at the end of my shower I scrub away. Then I end with a one minute cold shower. It works, my skin is glowing! I don't do this on my face, I think the glove is too rough for that, but everywhere else on my body that I can reach.

I am very curious to know if, because of this daily ritual and staying out of the sun, Korean women don't get age spots. It would be very rude of me to siddle up to someone at the spa and inspect their forearms to check for age spots, lol, so I hope someone on Earth Clinic will be able to answer that!

My 8 month old daughter had horrible diaper rash that got raw and was peeling and at some point was itching. I tried coconut oil, collodial silver gel from my "toolkit" (Read: Earthclinic) but they didnt work. I also tried some OTC treatments and they worked for a little bit but it wouldn't clear.

This weekend I decided to try lanolin that I had bought for my cracked nipples that I got when I started breastfeeding. It is working like a charm, her bummy is getting smoother, is healing and not itching at all! I used the type that was intended for cracked nipples and it works so well. So after wiping her bottom during a nappy change, I smear the stuff on and thereafter put on some zinc oxide cream over that. Its working quite well.


Lavender

Posted by Lisa (Thousand Oaks, Ca, Usa) on 11/28/2012

Happy Holidays Everyone! While searching for homemade gifts, I came upon a great page for "13 Magical Things To Make With Lavender"! I love lavender and since it's a healing herb and most of us who come here to Earth Clinic are interested in natural remedies/ herbs, etc. , I thought this would be perfect. Personally, we have lavender all over our yard we planted, after being inspired by a trip we took a few years ago to the south of France. So, this is an easy one for me! Anyway, there are some fun and easy recipes that are beautiful gifts to give for the holidays.

I exfoliate my face with lemon juice every other night. I also use a moisturizer and most importantly I eat lots of veggies, nuts, and fruit. I also take cod liver oil every other day, plus vitamin/mineral supplements. I don't smoke, I drink very little alcohol, and I use sunscreen. I'm 42 and people tell me I look like I'm in my late 20's

Hi,

I originally used the chart and workout found in "The Natural Facelift" by Joseph Corvo. I always followed the acupressure workout but didn't really like the facial exercises. Another facial acupressure chart and routine can be found in "Eva Fraser's Facial Workout" by Eva Fraser. I do some of her exercises and prefer them. There are also much less detailed facial acupressure charts in the following two books "The Natural Face Book" by Juliette Kando and "The 10 Minute Facelift" by Tessa Thomas. All four of the books have their merits. In order I would choose the Eva Fraser, followed by the Joseph Korvo, then Juliette Kando and lastly Tessa Thomas.

Before buying anything get people to check their local library first. My local library has two of these. Then Ebay for the best prices before checking with Amazon. For instance the Joseph Corvo book is out of print and normally sells for a pretty steep price, so as all the books have their merits, go for the one which is most readily available first.

There are also hundreds of websites offering free facial exercises. Here, in my opinion, are two of the best:

www.shapeyourface.com

This guy is selling nothing and the eye exercise in particular really works. It doesn't just tighten up the eye, but seems to help lift the upper cheek area.

www.ageless.co.za/facial.htm

These people are selling a range of skin products, but the exercises are well explained.

Hope this helps. it might be an idea to post links to the two websites, that may cut down on the number of questions you receive.

I am 42 and people say I look like I am in my early 30's and some say late 20's. I think this is partially in the genes. I am Indian origin and the women in my family age gracefully. I use sunscreen daily in my moisturizer (30 SPF). My daily regiment includes an eye cream, moisturizer with SPF and cleansing with a foaming cleanser. I use Aveeno products to moisturize and cleanse. I drink lots of water. I also wear good sun glasses and never expose my face to direct sunlight.

The best skin softner, virgin coconut oil. I take flax seed oil, hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. Which does wonders. I think inner peace and low stress in life is important. I have a yoga ( which reverse aging process according to my teacher) & meditation practice. Studies indicate stress is known to be one of the main reasons for premature aging and disease. Womens health is compromised when under stress. Studies show that men benefit more from marriage, than women. The generalized statement, "you haven't lived till you have had kids, " is not applicable in this day and age. Studies show higher the education of a women, the less likely women are to have children perhaps education opens doors to new found opportunities that once remained shut to women. Many times these thoughts may not enter your mind about the worlds carrying capacity being exceeded and social responsibility.

Until you travel to places where the population has exceeeded the billionth mark. And you see children living in filth, poverty, uneducated, begging and having to work in factories. I once worked in field where I saw a high percentage of people that should NEVER ever be allowed to have kids. I will not go into the details but the end effect was children suffering. Children are beautiful gift and they deserve love, stability, security, and both a mother & father that are healthy, employed and present.

It is an interesting fact that a new generation of women are not choosing marriage or motherhood. Many are focusing on building meaningful lives in other ways. I think to me life is all about making the right choices for all of the right reasons. Women are very fortunate today that we now have choices, it wasn't that long ago that are choices were severly limited

hmmm. so the ones who CAN give a child what he needs, are having less children, and the next generation might be populated by those children who grew up NOT getting what they need...

Younger Looking Skin - I use these products - Are They Safe to Use On My Face?

I wash my face with Lye Soap. Why? I saw a picture of my grandmother and her sisters as teenagers and none of them had acne, I asked her what they used she said "We were poor, all we had was lye soap mama made." Then I cut a lemon in half squeeze the juice in a wash rag and pat my entire face with it. I Let it soak in for maybe 1-2 mins. Then if I'm staying home cover my face in extra virgin olive oil, If I going out I pat light dabs of the oil on (so I just look dewy) My main concern is the Lye soap. I think in this regamin I cover cleaning, toneing and moister. I wanted to recomend it to a frind but I'm not sure if it is good advice?

i don't even EAT miracle whip. but there was some in our fridge. i read about the exfoliating properties of it and decided to try it... since i had tried everything else. well, i love it. i have dry aging skin with fine lines that gets too dried out by granular exfoliation (brown sugar or sea salt or even wash cloths and/or baking soda).
the miracle whip works like a chemical peel and you just rub off the top layer of your skin along with the miracle whip.

put about a tablespoon onto your face and neck in a very thin layer. wait 10 minutes and then start to rub your skin in circles. the dead skin rolls off into little balls along with the miracle whip. keep rubbing until all the 'shiny' places are rubbed off. for those whose skin can tolerate baking soda - you might try rubbing afterwards with a tiny bit of BS to finish the job. does mayonaise work? i don't know never tried it. but this works great and when i remember to do it several times a week my skin starts to remind me of my skin i had in my 20's. enough said. don't eat it - but it works great for this! and it is cheap and i guess sort of natural....

oh - i tried just using ACV and i guess MW works so well because of it's other ingredients... whatever, it works great! everyone notices how 'perfect' my skin is these days.
