For many people, winter means months of dry skin. Chronic dry skin can lead to eczema, which is an inflammatory skin disorder. Eczema can be caused by: allergies, very hot or cold weather, stress, cold/flu. Symptoms may include: itching, scaling, flaking and crusting, on the face, elbows or behind the knees.
Loose leaf tea is perfect in banishing dry skin during the winter months due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
The three herbs that have proven their efficiency in dealing with eczema would be Burdock, Fumitory, and Red Clover. We will be focusing on the Burdock Root & Red Clover. Both are herbs with anti-inflammatory qualities, which aid in eliminating the bacteria that aggravates the eczema on the skin.
