Heal Eczema Naturally with Our Healing Balm Recipe April 13 2015
Eczema & Psoriasis Healing Balm
Skin irritations and conditions can make anyone feel very uncomfortable and self-conscious. While I don't normally suffer from eczema, during very stressful times, it’s not uncommon for me to have a temporary outbreak of either condition, which can itch and burn. A natural skin care recipe can be the best answer for an outbreak of either of these unpleasant conditions.
Most eczema and psoriasis products on the market can smell unpleasant and pungent. This natural skin care recipe that I’ve devised below will smell more pleasant and absorb more quickly than many products on the market that contain oils that tend to sit on the skin.
If for some reason you’re not fond of the smell of this formulation, you can minimize the amount of neem oil, or perhaps use it in the evening after you have taken a shower or bath. Apply to clean, dry skin.
1 t. ewax
2 t. shea butter
1.5 t. sweet almond oil
1.5 t. castor oil
1 t. neem oil
¼ t. vitamin e
10 drops lavender essential oil
10 drops of geranium essential oil
Start with melting the ewax in a double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler handy, you can improvise. Fill a small pot with a little water, and set on top a glass bowl. This will serve the same as a double boiler.
After the ewax is melted, add the butters to melt. Then add the caster oil, almond oil, and neem oil.
Once this is all clear and melted properly, take off of the heat. Stir with a heat proof spoon for a minute or two, and then add vitamin e and essential oils. Stir frequently as mixture starts to cool, and scrap sides down while doing so. Pour or dispense mixture into a clean jar or container with a tight lid. Keep in a cool dry place for the best preservation.
Balm should be ready to use in a couple of hours once it’s fully cooled. You’ll find great comfort in knowing that you’re using a handmade, chemical free formulation on your skin.
