Home Remedies in an Eggshell Membrane

Home Remedies in an Eggshell Membrane

“Eggshell Membrane, discovered as a wound healer soon after woman discovered that eggs were good to eat. Imagination takes us to the campfires of nights left far behind by history. The newly discovered “fire” created pain, along with the red skin and fluid-filled blisters. Necessity was the driving force and woman learned that the membrane of the eggshell is a natural “home remedy” applying it to burns, cuts, scratches, spider bites and insect stings.”

The egg white has long been used as a facial exfoliant. However, the eggshell membrane acts as a drawing agent with antibacterial properties making it useful for treating boils, pimples and blackheads. It will also draw splinters out of the skin; whether wooden, metal or glass.


Boils:  In the evening crack open an egg and remove the contents. Then remove the thin membrane that lines the inside of the eggshell. Place the membrane, wet side down, on the boil, and cover with a clean, dry bandage. After about 12 hours, check the bandage if the boil has not come to a head and burst repeat the process.  Sometimes it takes two or three nights of treatment.

Spider Bites:  Treat spider bites and blisters caused by fire or friction with eggshell membrane. Simply cover the affected area with the membrane, wet side to bite, and then place a bandage over the membrane. Repeat treatment as necessary until the bite or the blister has healed.

Cuts and Scratches:  Place eggshell membrane wet side down on cuts and scratches, then allow the membrane to dry and fall off on its own. The process helps wounds to heal very well and leaves little scarring. As the membrane dries it pulls the sides of the cut together holding it until the skin begins to knit itself in repair.

Blackheads and Pimples:  For problem spots of acne and blackhead removal, place the membrane, wet side to skin, allow the membrane to dry. Rinse the membrane off with tepid water and an exfoliating pad then pat with a towel to dry.

These herbs not only help to treat current infections, but work well as a preventative measure so that the boils do not reoccur. Other herbs such as fennel and dandelion also help to detox the body and prevent reoccurring boils.) Read more about boils

Midwives who have done a little research have found that the cyanoacrylate glue (Super Glue) sold over-the-counter and medical cyanoacrylate glues are apparently identical in composition and rumored to the be same as the tissue adhesive used extensively during the Vietnam War. Some midwives have even used over-the-counter Super Glue (Krazy Glue) successfully in lieu of suture to close the perineum. Read more about tissue adhesive wound repair.
