We make homemade eczema cream because manufacturers of store-bought eczema creams start with petroleum which is not good for skin, despite marketing claims!

Instructions

  1. To begin making your homemade eczema cream, use a double boiler or similar setup (I used a small pot in a larger poand melt down the shea butter and coconut oil until they're combined.
  2. Next, add the honey and allow it to melt.
  3. When everything is in a liquid state, add the lavender and tea tree oils and stir to combine.
  4. Allow your mixture to cool slightly so that it will begin to solidify. You can put the homemade eczema cream solution in the refrigerator. Do not put in the freezer or it will become too solid and you'll have to melt it back down.
  5. When your solution has thickened up but is still liquid, go ahead and give it the first round of mixing. I prefer a hand-held mixer, but a stand mixer would work, too. Mix for several minutes until the color has lightened and the solution has a frothy appearance.
  6. As the solution solidifies, mix every ten minutes or so, until it is at its peak solid state (similar to a lotion consistency).
  7. Mix one more time and transfer to the mason jar or another container.
  8. You can store this homemade eczema cream at room temperature or in the refrigerator, depending on how solid you would like it to remain.

Notes

Application

As always, when using a new product on your skin, use sparingly at first to be sure that your skin reacts well. After you've determined that your skin reacts well, apply once or twice a day over the affected area.
