A cure for skin conditions is organic, 100% grass-fed tallow balm. This was recommended in the Weston A. Price Foundation's newsletter and is available for sale on some sites online, including Etsy, which has a nice collection of products. Please try this and let me know what you think! I have been using it for a few months now, and it has done wonders for my skin. It pretty much cured my contact/chemical dermatitis -- 10 more applications or so and I should be golden -- and got rid of damage to my skin from smoking. It also healed a lot of my dry skin problems, and, applied to the scalp and hair it has done wonders for itchy scalp and dermatopillomania. My hair is in a lot better shape too after applying it there a few times. It has turned slightly lighter and a lot of the problems associated with chemical shampoos and the use of natural soap (I use natural soap bars) have gone away. I also had callused heels, and they are well on their way to being cured after applying the tallow balm. Great on the nails and cuticles as well and under the nails. Overall, my skin is looking better than ever, and instead of looking like I'm 42 when I'm 37, I look like 32, with complimentary prose applied liberally here. Anyway, this product can definitely help some people, and I recommend it for all skin problems. You can also apply it to cuts for the healing of wounds. Use it on your whole body for a moisturizer daily after showering until you don't need it anymore... or keep applying. In my opinion, if people haven't already thought of this, don't use a specialty face moisturizer in your natural hygiene routine. There's no reason except for what we're taught, falsely, in the beauty and cosmetics industry, to take more extra care of your face than the skin on the rest of your body. Don't wash extra there, don't apply more moisturizer there or apply it more often, and don't wash your face more often than you wash your entire body. That's a true beauty secret!
Another thing I recommend that I plan to try soon but which I haven't gotten to yet is using Rhassoul clay for full-body wash, except hair, and Rhassoul clay mixed with seaweed conditioner for washing hair. The rhassoul clay functions as the shampoo. You can also put rhassoul clay in small bottles and keep it by your sinks as a "hand soap". Rhassoul clay does not really come organic and can be purchased economically on Amazon. For the seaweed conditioner and rhassoul clay, see these links:
The seaweed conditioner is available on the "Natural Spa Supplies" web site in the products section. The site also includes instructions for making the Rhassoul Clay-Seaweed Conditioner mix. Without the use of the conditioner, the clay can cause tangling. Otherwise, I was prepared to use the clay alone.
Tallow balm also can be used as deodorant, and it seems to work for me. Although it doesn't last a long time, I can tell it is curing my Body Odor , so with enough use I imagine it works just fine.
Hope this helps some people! I have been doing research on natural hygiene for years and have almost come up with a plan that is completely non-toxic and with ingredients equivalent to food. Let me know how it goes! Here is the link to organic, 100% grass-fed tallow balm from I think the only place I've been able to find it online:
