Best Natural Lotions to Relieve Dry Skin, Winter Itch and Eczema

Have you decided to grow your claws long to accommodate all the itching ‘n scratching from winter itch and maybe even eczema? Welp, stop sharpening your claws because I have good news for you.
winter itch eczema Best Natural Lotions to Relieve Dry Skin, Winter Itch and Eczema

Throw away that toxic Vaseline and forget about sinking your hard earned cash into countless drug store lotions that disappoint. I am a self-proclaimed expert in the tragic field skin-itchology.

Winter itch plagued me for years. I relied on Vaseline as my only hope, but after learning about harm to our bodies caused by mineral oil found in petroleum jelly, popular lotions and other beauty products, it was an easy decision to throw that stuff in the trash.

Be sure to read my post on Mineral Oil: A Toxic Evil Lurking in Your Beauty Products to get informed. Do NOT put that stuff on yourself, and definitely don’t put it on your kids.

BEST NATURAL LOTIONS

The best lotions technically aren’t lotions at all — they are not blends or concoctions with a long list of ingredients on a label. Here’s why and how I use Fractionated Coconut Oil and 100% Shea Butter on myself and my family:

Pork Loin Sandwich with Peppers and Onions. Oh My!

Talk about a lovely creation to send down to the innermost depths of the stomach. It is the pork loin sandwich. You must do this.

pork loin sandwich Pork Loin Sandwich with Peppers and Onions. Oh My!

You can serve this to a house full of hungry peoples, or cook it early in the week as part of your bulk food prep for several days of noshing.

GATHER YOUR INGREDIENTS

prep time: 10-15 minutes; cooking time: 15-20 minutes

serves 7-10 greedy people

  • 1 pork loin
  • 1 large white onion
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 large tomato
  • 2 large, colorful peppers
  • Salt, pepper and garlic to taste
  • Olive oil
  • Kaiser rolls
  • Smatherings of mayo (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare peppers and onions by cutting into slices (do not dice)
  • Slice tomatoes and set aside.
  • In a large pan, add a bit of olive oil and begin to stir fry the peppers, onions and mushrooms. Add salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste.
  • While veggies are cooking, prepare pork loin by cutting into thin slices.
  • If your pan is big enough, once veggies are partially cooked, add pork loin slices to the pan and continue cooking. If your pan is not big enough to add the loin, add a bit of olive oil to another pan and cook loin slices separately. The loin will create a juicy liquid in the pan – do not get rid of the juices as it helps to keep the loin slices nice and tender.
  • Once all is cooked thoroughly, prepare your kaiser bread by smathering on a light layer of mayo and adding tomato slices, then fill your roll with the loin and veggie mixture.
  • Now CHEW.

If a piece of kaiser bread isn’t quite right for your tummy, this beautiful ‘n tasty creation also goes well over a brown rice. Optionally, this meal is equally splendid if you go Paleo and eat it without bread or rice.

Hugs and love to my Greedy Kid #1 for making this meal while visiting us with her own shiny new family. Happy noshing!

Oregano Oil Benefits, Facts and Risks

oregano oil benefits Oregano Oil Benefits, Facts and Risks

Nope. It’s not some new-fangled cooking oil to fry up a batch of chicken legs. The use of oregano oil for medicinal purposes dates back to the ancient Greeks, ancient Egyptians and, as you might expect, those awesome Chinese healers. It was used by Hippocrates in the B.C era and has a reputation dating back centuries as an anti-toxin for poisoning.

Oregano oil (origanum vulgare) hails from bushy perennial oregano shrubs originally found in the mountainous regions of the Mediterranean and parts of Asia. Flowers and leaves are harvested from the oregano plant when essential oil content is at its peak. Two processes for making oregano oil are distillation to obtain pure oil (typically in products from commercial suppliers) and the infusion method, typically done at home by seeping the leaves into another oil, such as olive oil.

I consider oregano oil to be one of the most significant, most powerful natural medicinal agents found in nature. I call it nature’s “Clorox bleach” for the human body. (does that sound kinda creepy?)

WHAT DOES OREGANO OIL CONTAIN THAT MAKES IT SO POWERFUL?
