If you are searching for a natural treatment for eczema, keep reading to learn more about the healing powers of Washington’s only natural mineral lake.


Atopic dermatitis (eczema) is a condition that makes your skin itchy and red. While it is common in children, it can occur at any age. Eczema is long lasting, chronic, and tents to flare periodically. Further, it may be accompanied by asthma or hay fever.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for eczema. But, treatments and self-care measures can relieve itching and prevent new outbreaks.

Natural Treatment for Psoriasis

Before the discovery of penicillin and sulfa drugs, Americans relied on untold potions and home brewed concoctions. In the early 20th century, homegrown remedies were the only medicines Americans had — unless they could take a cure at a spa. This was the time when natural spas at Saratoga Springs, New York, White Sulphur in West Virginia, and Hot Springs, Arkansas flourished.

Soap Lake’s Mineral Waters

Dating back to the Native American tribes that once lived in the area, Soap Lake, in Eastern Washington State, was regarded as a sacred body of water with special healing properties. Up until the discovery and use of antibiotics, Soap Lake was a popular destination. It was known to relieve symptoms of ailments like eczema, psoriasis, arthritis, and more. Without exaggeration, Soap Lake is unlike any other lake in the world. It has some of the highest naturally occurring mineral content of any other lake in the world. In addition to the highest mineral diversity found naturally occurring in a body of water.

Its mineral waters are beneficial for those with eczema because the minerals help the skin trap hydration, soften the skin, and break down the rash that characterizes eczema. Further, the lake’s mineral-rich curative clay does wonders for the skin.

One of the most common ways to enjoy this unique mineral lake is with a mud bath! For as long as people have visited Soap Lake, they have enjoyed soaking in the lake’s waters and laying in the sun covered in the dark mud. This is because the mud absorbs oils, toxins, and moisture from the skin, replenishing pores with healthy minerals. Further, the mud softens and tightens skin for a glowing complexion.

If you are in need of a natural treatment for psoriasis, or just a DIY spa day, we highly encourage you to visit Soap Lake!

While there, we recommend lodging at Soap Lake Natural Spa & Resort. Their mission is to complement the natural healing capabilities of the lake by promoting a holistically healthy lifestyle.
