Itching Treatment

Apple Cider Vinegar Add 2 cups of apple cider vinegar to bathwater to relieve itching, or apply full strength apple cider directly to the area of the itch, except near the eyes or the genitals. Douche with diluted apple cider vinegar to relieve itching caused by Trichomonas vaginitis.

Anise Anise oil destroys lice and similar insects. Apply it directly to the area of itching, or make up an anise ointment.

Ointment Bruise a handful of anise seeds, and add them to either wheat germ oil, vitamin E oil, avocado oil, pure lanolin, or lard. Bake this for two hours in an oven. Then strain out the charred seeds. Apply the result to the itching area or to the area with lice. Check first for skin sensitivity.

Burdock It is said that homeopathic tincture of burdock seeds in dose of 10 to 30 drops in 2 tablespoons of cold water used from several weeks to several months will overcome many chronic skin diseases. I have also read reports of success in treating psoriasis with burdock.



Dock (Yellow Curled) Boil the root of yellow curled dock in vinegar until it softens. Mix the pulp with vegetable oil or any of the above mentioned oils, and apply the mixture to the skin to alleviate an old skin condition. The diluted homeopathic tincture may also be used in this way. Fresh dock leaves will help relieve the itch of poison ivy.

Juniper An ointment of juniper wood oil ("Juniper tar") and yellow wax (Unguentum olei cadini), has been used by herbalists and physicians to heal eczema and psoriasis skin sores. Lemon juice Fresh squeezed lemon juice will relieve itching. Use it diluted, on genital areas.

Oatmeal Use either colloidal oatmeal from the drugstore, or uncooked blended oatmeal in bathwater, or add a small amount of water to get a paste consistency, and apply the oatmeal to the skin to overcome itching. Oatmeal paste or baths relieve the itch of poison ivy, hives, and other allergic reactions.

Yogurt Dilute several tablespoons of yogurt or acidophilus tablets in a pint of warm water. Use this as a douche to relieve internal itching from yeast infection. Also add yogurt or aciclophilus to the diet to prevent yeast infections.
