Just like the carrot, a potato can be used as a beneficial poultice. Grate and wrap in a damp tea, paper, or thin towel (or use without wrapping) an apply to affected area for a minimum of 20 minutes (more repeats = more results) in the case of:
- Skin and Eye Inflammations
- Burns (the lesser burn that you don’t go to the emergency room for)
Caution: potatoes will stain purple or black. Do not apply heat to this poultice.

Got a skin condition like eczema, or acne? Need to draw out an abscess, cyst, or boil? Simply grate a carrot (the juicier the better), throw it in a damp tea towel or paper towel, and apply to affected area for at least 20 minutes. For optimal results, cover with a hot water bottle or heating device. Repeat as often as possible. Be warned… carrots stain.
Caution: Do not use on an open wound skin condition or one irritated by moisture.
