For all you Itchy Mommies to Be

Michelle, thank you for encouraging me to share the following information.

   Attempting to catch my blog up to speed would be a daunting task. So, I've decided to dive right in with some great news. My dear friend Cyndi, sent me on another path of discovery. I love it when the search leads to a successful outcome.  This post is for all you beautiful mommies to be out there. Have you been diagnosed with Pupps?  Maybe you are just trying to deal with the itch and rash, trying everything under the sun to get some relief.
   Our mutual friend Michelle was suffering with a bad case of Pupps. Cyndi was able to offer some relief with Pine Tar soap and certain essential oils, but not enough to suit her, so she emailed me with an SOS.  After researching and adding to products I'd already formulated, a care package was delivered to Michelle. I anxiously waited for the news.
    The call came in, the products worked like a charm, and Michelle made me promise to pass on the information here.
There are actually four products that work together. Relief can be achieved in just a couple days. All the ingredients I use are organic or wild crafted.
1. Dandelion capsules - Most skin disorders are connected to liver function, so start thinking about what might be going on inside.  I suggest researching Krill oil, Chia Seed, and a good Probiotic as well. I make my own Dandelion supplements using the ground herbs from Mountain Rose. Each capsule contains 500mg of pure dandelion. I suggested she take 3 in the morning and 3 in the evening.
2. B. Pupps-Les Bath Soak - In large "tea" bags go a combination of dried Dandelion, Chickweed, and Nettle. These herbs are a wonderful anti-inflammatory, microcirculatory stimulant, and have mild chloretic (bile releasing) properties. 
3. B. Pupps-Les Cream -  This soothing cream should  be used throughout the day. The ingredients are as follows: Calendula infused Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Beeswax, Vitamin E Oil, Dandelion and Nettle infused Alkaline Water, Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Calendula Essential Oil.
4. Big Blu Belly Tea - I could go on forever about this product. I created it to help the pregnant girls in my family, and it quickly spread to family friends. Drink as much as you like - tastes great and is good for you. The following is a list of ingredients and some information regarding their amazing properties:
Red Raspberry Leaf: Contains tannins and fragrine which give tone to the muscles of the pelvic region, including the uterus. Vitamins A,C,E, and B. Generous amounts of easily assimilated calcium, iron, phosphorus, and potassium salts.  Many articles and testimonials state that a strong infusion increases fertility, tonifies the uterus, aids in easy birthing, helps prevent miscarriage, alleviates morning sickness, reduces muscle/leg cramps and backaches, and counters fatigue.
Nettle: Research has shown that it helps prevent varicose veins and hemorrhoids, eases leg cramps and backache, reduces the incidence of hemorrhage after birth, and increases the richness of breast milk. Amazing amounts of energy as well as large amounts of calcium, magnesium, and vitamins A, D, C, B, and K.  It prevents folic acid anemia and iron deficiency anemia. Also a digestive aid, lung strengthener, kidney helper, and hair and skin restorative.
Red Clover: Excellent aid for women who are unable to conceive.  This herb has generous amounts of minerals, proteins, antioxidants, and phytoestrogens.  It restores health to the entire reproductive system. Contains E, Selenium and zinc.  Has ten times more plant hormones than soy.  Prevents and eases the constipation so common during pregnancy.  Strengthens liver, improves appetite when morning sickness is a problem, relieves anxiety. Keeps breast milk rich and the breasts healthy.  It is the world’s most respected anti-cancer herb.
Dandelion: One of the best liver tonics known.  Nourishing the liver is critical during pregnancy.  Lack of strong liver functioning is implicated in morning sickness, hemorrhoids, constipation, heartburn, indigestion, lack of energy, headaches, and mood swings. Dandelion root is high in Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin A and the B complex vitamins, all of which have antioxidant properties. Because of its high iron and zinc content, dandelion root is often used as a treatment for anemia.
Ginger: A good source of Vitamin C, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.  Ginger will stimulate appetite, fight body odor, and promote perspiration.  It is best known for treating motion sickness and nausea.  Relieves gastrointestinal distress. 
On top of all those, I also include a small amount of ground whole Stevia Leaf which contains the anti-inflammatory benefits of flavonoid glycosides and quercetin among many other constituents.
