Eczema could be one of the most problematic skin conditions I have ever seen. You will ell like your skin is burning. And you may feel like you can do nothing against it. To relief the pain caused by eczema, I started to use my own homemade eczema cream.
However, if you have serious eczema problem, you should first consult to your doctor for medical solutions. The homemade eczema cream recipe here is only to relief the general pain and irritation caused by this skin disease.
If you are experiencing eczema, your skin is probably inflamed and/or irritated. You may also develop an allergic reaction from this disease. This skin disease is common among infants. But, it can also affect adults and children. When an infant suffers from eczema, it could be very uncomfortable to all family members. For that reason, it is important to relief the pain and feeling of irritation.
You can use this amazing natural homemade eczema cream. In this recipe, I will take advantage of the benefits of Shea butter, coconut oil, essential lavender oil, and essential tea tree oil. We all know that coconut oil is an amazing moisturiser. And your skin needs moist in case of eczema. What is more, high Vitamin A content of Shea butter will help your skin to regenerate. This regeneration process will increase the healing speed of your skin.
Essential oils will also support moisturising effects of coconut oil and shea butter. Let’s see what this amazing homemade eczema cream contains and how it is prepared.
Homemade Eczema Cream Ingredients:
- 1/4 cup of Shea butter
- 1/4 cup of natural coconut oil
- 15 drops of essential lavender oil
- 5 drops of essential tea tree oil
Homemade Eczema Cream Preparation:
Take a small pan and add some water into this pan.
Place the pan on the stove.
Heat the water in medium or high heat.
Add Shea butter and coconut oil in a bowl.
Place this bowl on the pan to melt the Shea butter and coconut oil.
After both ingredients melt, add essential lavender oil and essential tea tree oil to this mixture.
Mix all the ingredients until you obtain homogenous mixture.
Pour the mixture in a clean container.
Place the container in the fridge to obtain firm crème structure.
Enjoy your homemade eczema cream
You can start using your natural homemade eczema cream immediately. If you have slightly sensitive skin, to avoid more irritation, you may not add lavender essential oil.
Also, it is important to consult to your doctor first before using this homemade eczema cream. Generally, there will be no problem to use this cream to relief eczema. But if you doctor had prescribed you a medicine, it is recommended to use this homemade recipe after consulting to your doctor.
You can also store the mixture in fridge. This is because coconut oil and Shea butter will start melting at room temperature. This will cause the firm look of the eczema cream to disappear.
