Eczema Cream~ Perfect for Crafters Too!

We are dealing with some serious dry skin as well as eczema that the youngest fights. I don’t love the petroleum based creams for his skin. After picking up a new coconut oil I thought it was time to make a cream that I got to control the ingredients.
So far, after just a couple of days, we are pleased! Seeing results in his dry, cracked, itchy, burning knuckles so quickly is just what I was looking for.

ECZEMA CREAM

 

  • 1/3 C oats ground to a fine powder
  • 3/4 C coconut oil
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 tsp sweet almond oil
  • 2 T beeswax
  • 1/2 tsp tocopheryl
  • {optional} rosemary oil
  • dozen or so pumps of intensive healing lotion for the added creaminess

Heat coconut oil for 1 minute in microwave.

Add other oils, beeswax, heat for 30 seconds & give a stir to blend.

Pour into air tight container, I used an old glass marshmallow creme jar & a baby food jar.

As it cools and solidifies I shook the jars to disperse the ground oats evenly.

 


I think the next batch I will add shea butter or possibly cocoa butter, more for my hands than his eczema. I love the butters in my lotions.
This goes on a tad greasy, slick but it absorbs well.
I have also found that it does wonders on my split ends & as we all know natural oils are more healthy for the hair than silicones or artificial hair shine products.

Give it a try & adjust ingredients as you see fit 🙂
