Note. The picture shows my highly infected and inflamed arm. After several hours of poultice application the swelling and redness had decreased by more than half of what it was, within half a day it was almost back to normal The power of the simple poultice!
Organic Chaparral Poultices with ground flax seed. An easy to apply remedy for serious skin conditions.
Poultices can reduce inflammation, promote circulation, relieve joint pain and stiffness, calm muscle spasms, improve mobility and flexibility, boost the immune system and tone the skin. A poultice is a great option because the affected area gets direct contact with the natural remedies, allowing healing through immediate absorption through the skin and, ultimately, drawing out any infection. Additionally, the bottom of the feet is an area where the skin is able to more easily absorb the natural remedy you apply.
An effective antibiotic against bacteria, viruses and other parasites. Has been included in folk and Amerindian remedies for cancer. Applied to the skin, chaparral can have a remarkable healing effect on eczema, herpes, cold sores, psoriasis, and contact dermatitis. Internal use is not recommended.
