Now To Keep The Eczema Away... (well as much as possible)
For those who have severe symptoms of eczema, taking a little extra step towards healing can go a long way. Below are several ways to treat your eczema that give you the relief you need:
Dead sea bath: Relax and kick back in a dead sea bath. Dead sea salts are famous for their healing mineral content. People from across the globe travel to the dead sea to bathe in its healing waters. We recommend dissolving 1-2 cups of dead sea salts in a warm bath. Soak for 20-30 minutes, and then rinse with warm water. The healing minerals will penetrate the skin and heal from the inside out.
Other African Solutions: Virgin coconut oil (for moisture), black seed oil (for healing), tea tree oil (relieves itching and rash), dead sea ex-foliating gel (for cleansing). Alternate remedies: • Take 30 mg of zinc twice daily. • Apply a paste made of nutmeg and water to the affected areas. • Add chamomile, lavender, or geranium essential oil to your bath.
How you should treat Eczema
The African Solution:
People with eczema suffer from very dry, itchy skin. One of the best ways to alleviate symptoms is by using an intense moisturizer. Each of these natural butters or oils is filled with vitamins and essential fatty acids that reduce the appearance of eczema, soothe away itching, and moisturize without clogging the pores.

Is that allergies or Rona?
While reading the internet I came across something that was very interesting to me. It turns out that there is some kind of correlation with shea butter and people who suffer from pollen allergies. According to mnn, a website that is known for their news on natural ingredients such as shea butter for natural soaps, stated an astonishing remark:
"A study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology found that shea butter was potentially more efficacious in treating nasal congestion than nasal drops. Subjects with congestion (mostly associated with seasonal allergy) were given 2-4 grams of shea butter applied to the interior of the nostril “by means of the subject’s right index finger.” (Which is to say, you can try this at home!) The airways of those using the shea butter (opposed to those using nasal drops or petroleum jelly) became clear within 30 to 90 seconds of application, and remained so for 5 to 8 hours, besting the other treatment methods. (On a similar note, use shea butter instead of petroleum jelly to fight pollen, see: How to survive pollen season (without locking yourself inside the house.)"
We have still yet to confirm this study, but we will be on top of it. Though we must say it is something that you can try to help alleviate some of the stress caused by allergies due to pollen and totally enjoy spring even though this horrid Covid-19 pandemic.
