Many people that I know suffer from eczema. Eczema is an itchy, inflamed rash that can appear on the skin. It can be a dry, itchy patch of skin or wet blisters, that when scratched can cause a secondary bacterial infection. What most people DON’T know is that eczema is actually an allergic reaction to an allergin. It can be from food, soaps, cleaners, or metal. Some of the common foods which may cause eczema are dairy eggs, corn,citrus, and wheat. Stress, emotional upset, and anxiety may trigger the outbreaks. If eczema is an issue for you, you may want a blood allergy test. Then you will want to boost the immune system.
Most have found that they dont get much relief with OTC products. So i am going to share a remedy that will help with the dry itchy skin.
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup Shea butter
3 tablespoons beeswax
10 drops rose essential oil
10 drops chamomile essential oil
10 drops yarrow essential oil
10 drops tea tree essential oil
10 drops lavender essential oil
3 drops rosemary essential oil
1 tablespoon arnica oil
1 tablespoon calendula oil
In a small sauce pan melt beeswax on low heat. Once melted add the Shea butter. Pour into a heat safe bowl and then add other ingredients. Using a mixer, blend on low until mixture takes on a lotion appearance. Store in a glass mason jar.
