Homemade Eczema Treatment (4) – Watermelon & Coconut Oil

15126053 - watermelon


I was talking to a friend on eczema diet and she shared with me one of her secrets:

Dry the peel of a watermelon, the large variety type that has a deep green skin with blackish green stripes with bright red pulp with black seeds inside. She said to burn the dried peel to an ash. Take a spoonful of this ash and add enough warm coconut oil to make a paste. After it is cool, apply this on the eczema-ridden patch.

Coconut oil is long known to have healing properties on eczema so that was not a surprise, but watermelon is not as well documented. There’s go to tell that we must keep ourselves informed of fellow sufferers’ healing tips.
