Cayenne and Cinnamon Scrub Recipe

For those suffering with the maddening itch of eczema, flaring, blistering, itchy and chafing- a simple cayenne scrub may aid in healing and itch relief.  Start off slow on the cayenne and test on a small area.  It isn’t the easiest to tolerate at first but has played a major part in my healing journey along with my diet changes.  Here are some recipes I used along with my Cayenne Pain Salve

Cinnamon Paste (a mild beginning)

  • 1/2 c Peanut Butter
  • 4 Tbsp Cinnamon Powder
  • 4 Tbsp Raw Honey

Mix ingredients well and apply as needed.  Nightly until healing well.  Works well to relieve itching and draw out eczema.  Scrub, massage, scrape, or simply wash off.  Do not hesitate to scrub a little rough as this will help to get the rooted eczema to the surface.

Cayenne/Cinnamon Yogurt (for those just starting out and need a milder start)

  • 1/2 cup yogurt or kefir
  • 2 Tbsp Cayenne and/or 2 Tbsp Cinnamon

Mix ingredients well and apply as needed.  Nightly until healing well.  Works well to relieve itching and draw out eczema.  Scrub, massage, scrape, or simply wash off.  Do not hesitate to scrub a little rough as this will help to get the rooted eczema to the surface.

Cayenne/Cinnamon Clay

  • 1/4 cup bentonite clay liquid OR
  • 1/8 cup bentonite clay powder and 1/8 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp Ground Cayenne Pepper and/or 2 Tbsp Cinnamon

Cayenne/Cinnamon Scrub Recipe (For those ready to rage war and try anything)

  • 3 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp Ground Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 Tbsp Peanut Butter and/or Raw Honey

Mix ingredients in a small jar and apply to eczema or acne as needed for relief.  Daily or nightly as able.  Cover with towel or plastic bag as needed to leave on as long as possible.  (You may want to test a small area and the burn is temporary and you build a tolerance to it .  (starting out you may just want to add a dash of cayenne and work up to more)  I literally chased my eczema around my hand this way.  I had to get serious and attack full force.

Directions for using Cayenne treatments

Mix ingredients well and apply as needed.  At night or an hour before bedtime.

Cover with a plastic bag or old clothes to prevent staining clothing.

Wash as needed but burn doesn’t always stop immediately. Apply cool yogurt or other neutral cover to draw any burning needed.

The burning may continue after washed off so go at your own pace and tolerance level.  I was hard core and went full force after a while as my torture and itching was severe as well.

Caution: Wash Hands Thoroughly after application or use.  Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth or other sensitive areas after using.

After complete or in the morning, apply Pine Salve.

CAUTION: I would not try the cayenne with a young child. Cinnamon will burn a little so maybe start with a Tbsp and work up to more. I would do this for about a week during the most severe itchy times of the month as the eczema cycles.

I am a mother of five children and 120 pounds on a heavy day. I grew up eating the average American diet and seemed pretty healthy until I found myself exhausted and struggling with kidney stones, sleepless nights and unmanageable skin issues. I stumbled across the answers that would soon unlock some keys to my healing and recovery. Eliminating added sugars, eating whole non GMO food, fermenting and gardening, homeschooling and my continued learning. Come join my journey and continue your own. Please note: I do not claim to have all the answeres and base my FACTS on my own experiences and conclusions. Please take time to pray for healing and direction, research on your own, ask questions, seek out an expert and start low and slow. We are all created unique and live different lifestyles and nothing is the same for everyone. Be blessed on your journey. I owe it all to the creator of all things, glory be to God!
