Homemade Hard Lotion for Eczema and Recipe

My daughter Emma have had eczema since she was a baby. I've tried different kinds of organic or all natural  lotions but nothing really worked. Her eczema was really bad. It was itchy and red. She would bleed sometimes from scratching.

A few months ago I decided to try making hard lotion. After using it for only a few days you could right away tell her eczema was getting better. After a few weeks using it, her eczema is almost gone. The dryness still comes back if she doesn't put it on for days. I just have to keep reminding her to put it on everyday. So far she's been really good at remembering. She loves rubbing it all over her body.

Here is the before and after picture. The middle picture was taken after one week using the hard lotion. The bottom picture was taken recently.



                                       

This is the second time I made them. The first time I made them I only made a small batch. I've given a few and my whole family use them so they didn't last very long. This time I made a lot. Another great thing about this lotion is that it only has 3 ingredients and they are so easy to make.

Ingredients: These ingredients should be available in any health food store but I bought mine from Amazon. Use ONE PART EACH. If you are using 4 oz shea butter then you have to use 4 oz for the coconut oil and beeswax. I made 16 oz or 1 pound each.

Shea Butter

Coconut Oil

Beeswax


Combine all ingredients


Use a double boiler to melt it. I used a mixing bowl and placed it on top of a boiling water.



Once it is all  melted you can pour it on any molds. I used muffin and mini muffin pan. You can also use ice cubes trays. 



Once they are hard you can store it in a ziplock bags. Make sure you store them in a cool place.
