Treating Skin Conditions With Eclipta Alba

Filiarisis is a disease caused by an infection of roundworms. It is usually passed on to humans from blood-feeding insects such as mosquitoes and black flies. It is possible to treat these insect bites using eclipta alba. The paste will reduce the inflammation caused by the bites, and also alleviate the pain caused by the infection.

First, a thick paste must be created using sesame seed oil as a base. The leaf must be crushed up and mixed into the sesame seed oil, then the paste is applied liberally over the swollen area. It is also necessary to apply the paste to the glands that are swollen as a result of filariasis.

Treating Urticaria with Eclipta Alba

Urticaria, or “hives”, are allergy rashes composed of round, red welts on the skin. They itch like crazy and, because they are caused by allergies, the swelling that accompanies the itching can be severe; even life-threatening. Thankfully eclipta alba can treat urticaria very easily.

As with the treatment of filariasis, we need to prepare a sesame seed oil paste using crushed eclipta leaves. This paste is a strong antinflammatory agent with analgesic properties. It will soothe the rash, reduce the swelling and remove the risks associated with dangerous over-swelling of the affected area.

Remember to apply a liberal amount of the paste to the rash, otherwise there may not be enough active ingredients to treat the whole area. It is better to apply too much and have to wash it off, than to apply too little and have to prepare another paste later on.

Using Eclipta Alba to Restore Skin Colour

It is no secret that eclipta alba is a strong pigment used in tattoos and it can restore lost colour to hair, but what you may not know is that it can do the same for your skin. Vitiligo is a skin condition that causes white patches to appear on the skin. The skin feels normal but all brown pigment has disappeared from the affected area.

Eclipta alba can restore the pigmentation to the skin. It is not an immediate change, like with the other treatments discussed here, but it does get to work right away. Once the pigmentation has returned to the skin, it is important to continue treatment until all the patches on the skin are completely healed, otherwise the condition can return. Full treatment can take between two months and two years, depending on the extent of the damage.

Again, prepare a paste from the crushed leaves and sesame seed oil. Make sure the paste is thick, and apply a thick layer over each of the affected areas. Allow time for the paste to absorb into the skin and get to work. This process will need to be repeated several times a day, for however long it takes to fully repair the damage to the skin.

Eclipta alba is one of nature’s wonder drugs in plant form. Its roots, its stem, its leaves and even its seeds all possess chemicals that are highly potent and used to cure a range of ailments. Whether you have a skin problem, a liver problem, a snake bite or even hair loss, there is a preparation of eclipta alba that can help soothe your pain and relieve the symptoms of your condition. What’s more, it is a natural remedy, free from pharmaceutical interference. Give it a try today and you won’t be disappointed.
