Aalgo Seaweed Therapy for Eczema
Eczema is known to come in two main forms – dry and wet. Whatever type of eczema you have, it can be healed with Aalgo seaweed. I used many a tub of this when I was going through the worst of my flare ups. And the seaweed bath was something I looked forward to every day.
Aalgo Seaweed is harvested off the North West, West and South West coasts of Ireland. It contains high concentrations of B1, B2, B3, B6, E, H, K3 Vitamin C and beta-carotene and many minerals.
The Aalgo company produces an organic seaweed power by harvesting this wild seaweed by hand. Nothing is added and nothing is taken away from it. Whether you are having facial or having a bath, this powdered seaweed nourishes the body and improves well being. It also helps clear the skin of rashes, dryness and itchy skin.
While working very well for eczema and psoriasis, the lymphatic system is also stimulated. You are detoxified and thus feel revitalised and refreshed.
Water is the ingredient that activates the 100% seaweed products. In powder form, the product lasts longer because you choose when to activate it with water. This removes the need for stabilizers and preservatives.
Your skin can safely absorb the goodness of the sea. It can be used on young children’s skin as well.
How Aalgo Seaweed Company Began
Aalgo is a family-owned and operated business. It began due to a family member suffering from really bad eczema. Tom suffered as a baby with eczema and was even taken to Switzerland and America by his parents for treatment. Nothing worked.
As he grew older, he began to seek alternative treatment to conventional medicine. He noticed his skin always improved after he had been seimming in the sea while on holidays. After a couple of years experimenting with different seaweeds and quantities, Tom finally came up with a mix of seaweeds that worked. And Aalgo was born!
Now Tom doesn’t have a mark on his body and has been eczema clear for 29 years.
Aalgo seaweed powder is available in a limited number of health spas, health shops, health farms, exhibitions and now predominantly online.
What Makes Aalgo Seaweed So Special?
The sea is the source of many healing advantages. As a result, the Aalgo team aim to prevent people – children included – from suffering the insane itch, pain and irritability brought about by skin disorders. To maintain their position as market leaders in the field of seaweed therapy, the 100% organic seaweed is taken from naturally cultivated seaweed beds which are changed on a regular basis.
Instructions for Use
Add 2 heaped tablespoons of Aalgo powder into a lukewarm bath. Bathe every day without showers where possible, so as to keep the invisible residue of Aalso on your skin.
Lie back with hyour neck muscles in the water to completely de-stress and relax.
Have an Aalgo bath every day until clear, then once a week thereafter.
If unable to bathe, mix some Aalgo powder with water into a wateru cream and apply all over your body, leaving on for about 5-10 minutes. Then shower off. Always make sure the shower is at half-power and is only lukewarm
In a short period of time you will notice:
- the dreadful itch will be totally soothed
- any area scratched raw will heal
- the dry, scaly skin will naturally and gently exfoliate away allowing renewed skin with a soft, supple and clear appearance.
Always use lukewarm water as hot water dries and irritates the skin. Enjoy having a long, relaxing Aalgo bath once a week.
If you feel the slightest dry skin, have a bath at night. If you have a stressful day, bath that night and get uyour neck muscles in teh water.
Always have an Aalgo bath after swimming in an indoor pool to counter the effects of chlorine.
Mix 2 tablespoons of Aalgo with enough hot water to make a cream
Cool to blood temperature
Apply with a spatula or the back of a spoon
Leave on for 2 minutes
Removed with lukewarm water and cotton wool.
Close pores with cold water and cotton wool.
Pat till damp
Then Apply moisturiser.
Aalgo Team suggest using the seaweed mask daily for about 2 minutes until skin is clear. Then three times a week for two weeks. After this, just using the mask once a week will be enough to maintain beautiful skin.
Scalp Eczema – Seborrheic Dermatitis
For your scalp, mix one tablespoon to a watery seaweed cream and apply all through the hair and scalp.
Cover with cling film (saran wrap) – keeping behind ears.
Leave on for 15 minutes.
Wash out with Aalgo Seaweed Shampoo Bar. Wash and rinse twice.
Do this daily til scalp is clear. Always wash your hair with the Seaweed Shampoo bar and if necessary use a natural conditioner. For example, Forever Living Aloe Jojoba Conditioner.
Hands and Feet Eczema – Pompholyx
For the hands (get some large plastic gloves). Mix Aalgo to a seaweed cream with warm water. Pour into gloves only half filling them. Then put your hands into the gloves. This way you will get the paste all over your fingers and hands.
Sit like this for about 20 minutes then rinse your hands in a prepared basin of lukewarm water. (Not under a running tap).
Then pat damp. There will be a residue left on your hands which you will absorb though your pores during the night. This will hydrate your skin from the inside out. Repeat this daily until your hands are 100% clear.
For the feet; Mix Aalgo to a thick seaweed cream with warm water. Apply at blood temperature to the soles of the feet and all around the heels. Cover loosely with cling film, put on socks and leave overnight.
In the morning, rinse your feet in a basin of lukewarm water and rub the area with your hands. Pat dry then moisturise.
NB. If you are diabetic, do not leave overnight. Only leave on the cream for about half an hour and then rinse off in a basin of lukewarm water.
When showering, always have a basin with enough water and some Aalgo seaweed powder dissolved in it outside of the shower. For you to step into once you have finished showering. This will remove the residue of shampoo, shower gel, soap, etc, that are in the foot-well of the shower. They prevent your feet from healing.
If there was no residue, we wouldn’t have to clean out our shower afterwards.
Always remember to let skin dry leaving a residue of seaweed cream on your skin before moisturising. This will enable your skin to heal faster.
