Natural products that may be very valuable in the future times

SURVIVALIST HEAL THYSELF
RE NATURAL PRODUCTS - especially for the skin

Hi All
Yowbarb here. I am thinking that skin wounds will be very common in the times to come. Wounds that get out of control
could be very very common for survivors of various disasters in the future. Undoubtedly there will be scrapes, cuts, burns,
gouges and the infections that go with it. Add to that, in the aftertimes, just plain wear and tear from doing necessary but
unfamiliar work - often without the necessary gloves or moisturizers - will really tear people

Progressive Doctors site also offers a natural Soothing Salve which is used for everything from diaper rash
to cracks on feet. I am hoping it would help with the wierder skin conditions brought about by chemicals etc such as Morgollons and possible skin parasites. I don't know that, but the ingrediaents look good:

The Ultimate Skin Conditioning & Barrier Ointment for:
Bed and/or Diaper Sore Rash;
Dry Cracked Diabetic Feet;
Moist Skin folds (w/Candida or Infection)
Tape Induced Skin Allergies, Irritations, etc.
http://www.dermawound.com/ointment.html

The herbs in Soothing Salve create a synergistic action that assures
fast and soothing relief for abused skin!
Ingredients: Unique blend of certified Organic: Oak Bark, Lobelia, Comfrey, Marshmallow Root,
Mullein Leaf, Skullcap, Black Walnut, Aloe and Calendula in a base of cold pressed certified Organic
Olive Oil, High Desert Beeswax, and Vegetable stearic acid.
Oak Bark has antiseptic and astringent properties. It has often been used to disinfect wounds and
sores. The astringent or tightening property of oak bark helps reduce the swelling which occurs
whenever there has been trauma to the tissues.
Lobelia has often been used as part of herbal combinations as a catalyst to make the actions of the other herbs
stronger and more effective. It is said "to lead other herbs to where they are needed and help them act together as a group".
Comfrey Root and Leaves contain .8 to 1.0% allantoin, a substance which is known to encourage the proliferation of cells. Allantoin is also a natural part of the fetal development process and is found in breast milk, where it helps the baby to grow. the presence of allantoin along with good quantities of calcium, B-12, and protein building substances gives Comfrey a profound ability to rebuild tissues.
Marshmallow Root is used in many different cultures for its emollient, coating, and soothing qualities. It is one of the best herbs for preventing and healing gangrene. Because of these qualities, it is often called "Mortification Root".
Mullein Leaves are natural pain killers. the contain a glycoside called Verbascose which has strong antiseptic and healing effects when applies externally.
Skullcap Leaves have been used to calm and repair the nervous system. They contains silicon, which is found in connective tissues, including those in the nervous system. Silicon is very important in the healing process, enabling the tissues to throw off accumulated pus.
Black Walnut Leaves are a source of natural iodine. It has antiseptic, anti-fungal and anti- parasitic properties. Black Walnut Leaves help protect damaged tissues from infections while they are vulnerable (such as in the case of bed sore and diaper rash).
Aloe Vera extracts have antibacterial and anti fungal activities. It is naturally soothing, and is used on burns and other traumas to the skin.
Calendula in suspension or in tincture is used topically to treat acne, reducing inflammation, controlling bleeding and soothing irritated tissue.
Organic Cold Pressed Olive Oil contains vitamin F (unsaturated fatty acids) which helps regenerate the skin and also combines with protein and cholesterol to form living membranes which hold the body's cells together. It is important to tissue respiration (breathing of the skin.
High Desert Beeswax is a pure, non-allergenic base which helps protect the skin from moisture and contaminants.
Vegetable Stearic Acid is used as a natural preservative, so the products do
not require refrigeration.
Safe and Natural Barrier from moisture and other contaminants on delicate skin.
Organic salve soothe and heal skin quickly - stops irritation and chafing.

Olive Oil Benefits
Are Simply Amazing


Today it is considered a good remedy for skin problems and an effective moisturizer. Olive oil benefits are surprisingly simple yet extremely effective.

 Choose the Highest Quality of Olive Oil Use only olive oil that is labeled "extra virgin". This guarantees that the oil has been cold pressed from freshly harvested olives and does not contain chemicals. Extra virgin olive oil supplies the best flavor, and oil that is green in color is the higher quality than golden-yellow oil.

Great site, thanks Barb

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.

Update the aloe vera plant is helping heal my skin.

I have had some dots up on my face near the hairline - been there too long and I was thinking I would need
a biopsy.

Had been getting worse and worse and not healing.
Last night I put the aloe straight on there and just let it stick there for awhile.
(For those who haven't used the aloe plant it is cool, sticky and immediately soothing to the skin.)
This morning - I swear -those scary looking dots are just about gone!!
I also put the plant on my joints where the skin breaks open... better today.

Used to get them in CA one daughter used them for an occasional dot on her face
(normal teen pimple) the aloe would chase that away.
Kept a plant around for kitchen burns, which I used to get more when I was cooking
for five kids and etc.

For some reason, couldn't find it locally, then put off finding some. Needed it for awhile now...
Daughter ordered me a bunch of plants from Texas on ebay.
I take the piece of aloe from the plant rinse it off,

cut off the spines on the outer edges of the piece of aloe and apply it to my skin.
I definitely recommend adding aloe vera to a survival list. It doesn't need much water. It can look completely

shriveled and dead then come back. It could sit in a neglected corner of your survival shelter and then be available to
use when needed. Just talk to the plant drop a little water on it -it's like it was engineered specifically to help humans...

My theory is there is something in the plant which is like human plasma.

RE Aloe vera for pain and healing:
As I posted elsewhere in the forum it even can reduce pain, sometimes take it completely
away on a temporary basis. A German lady told me this in 1980 - she said some people put a big piece of it on the outside of an
area, for example, a broken leg, on the outside skin. Even though the aloe was not near the actual broken bone it would take that pain away for awhile. I had a bad situation with three impacted wisdom teeth, not long after she told me about aloe vera.
I had to wait for the surgery and the pain was bad. (I had been taking some really super extra strength pain stuff which I rarely do.)
I took pieces of the aloe, got rid of the spines and opened them up so the wet part was next to
my aching jawbones. The pain immediate, I mean immediately went away. The relief didn't last long but when you are in agony it
helps to make it stop once in awhile.

The German gal had brought me a few pieces of aloe vera when she found out my lip would not heal up and had been that way
on/off for weeks. I went and got some at a big healthfood store in CA.

I can't find the topic that has sources of seeds, so I'll drop this info here.  Moderator:  feel free to move it to a better topic, and please complain that the search facility cannot find the messages about "seeds".

Hi lewisrl205
and welcome to the Town Hall!
I ordered some last year, but it was granulated... was so busy moving etc. never contacted the
company to ask them if  it should have been granulated... I bought two large jars.
Question: was your batch moist like cream, or was it also granulated? 
I have problems with skin on hands...
