I had no idea our rashes that developed while living in our toxic home had any connection with our environment. Of course, the skin is an easy port of entry and exit for the body, so in retrospect it’s obvious.
Since our detoxification process began, we’ve seen some incredible manifestations of inner turmoil, many of them more dramatic than the ones we saw in the house. I’ve captured a fraction of them below.

Top 5 Helpful Remedies
1. Calcium Bentonite Clay
I keep a jar of liquefied clay in the cupboard. I like Living Clay. Add clay powder at a ratio of 1 part clay to 8 parts water. Clay may be combined with raw apple cider vinegar for added benefit.
2. Grapefruit Seed Extract
GSE is antimicrobial and helps with itching. Nutribiotic offers a reputable product found here. Dilute before application.
3. Tea Tree Oil
This essential oil is highly antimicrobial and can help in the healing process. I like Native American Nutritionals.
4. Whey, kefir
The probiotics in natural dairy products can be soothing as well as beneficial.
5. Colloidal Silver
I use aloe vera gel as a carrier for colloidal silver. Stir in approximately one teaspoon of colloidal silver with 1/4 cup aloe vera gel. I like Utopia Colloidal Silver.
When all else fails, and sometimes it does, cold water can do wonders for the itching. Rashes are often a sign of excess heat in the body. Simply cooling the area can bring relief.
There is no one-size-fits-all for something as complex as a rash. Natural solutions such as these can help along the way!
