Bath Bomb Recipe for Healthy Skin

  There is nothing I love more than reading a trashy mag (OMG are Brad and Jen getting back together?) while soaking in a hot bath with a fizzy bath bomb that makes my skin glow. I've had eczema before so I think it's important to use soothing ingredients that are eczema-friendly (and skin-friendly) in your bath. This bath bomb recipe was made using SKIN FRIEND Oat and Zinc Bath Powder, which is soothing for eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and acne.  About the Bath Powder ingredients: Oat (avena sativa) powder contains cleansing saponions and beta-glucan, which forms protective barriers to soothe and hydrate...

Spiral Vegetable Tart with a Creamy Vegan Sauce

A beautiful tart to impress family or friends... Although it needs a little extra love and time for assembling, it is actually easy peasy to make and definitely a crowd pleaser as its both beautiful and delicious. You can choose from a variety of vegetables from the Eczema Detox such as potato, sweet potato, cabbage or carrot for this recipe.

Carob Banana Popsicles

Here is a simple idea if you want to make a low salicylate dessert that's both healthy and delicious. My son loved these, and they did not last long during the school holidays.  You can usually buy craft sticks at an art shop or supplier, and some kitchen stores sell ice block sticks. You will need 3 bananas to make 6 popsicles. Pre-chill the whole bananas (skin on) in the refrigerator for at least an hour beforehand. Method: Make the Carob Mylk Chocolate recipe first (find recipe here). Put the melted chocolate into a narrow cup so it's easy to dip...
