One of the main reasons I started looking into doTERRA essential oils was to find a natural alternative to support Braino’s eczema. Anyone who know my husband, would know his struggles with eczema on his hands, arms and behind his knees. I created a natural eczema balm using the below recipe and he loves it! It soothes the itch and really assists in healing his skin. Of course - he always asks me to massage it in, a little bit of added love and affection never hurts too.
RECIPE (sourced from draxe.com)
½ cup raw shea butter
½ cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon of beeswax
15 drops of Lavender essential oil
15 drops of Tea Tree essential oil
15 drops of Frankincense essential oil
Using a double boiler or something similar, melt the shea butter and coconut oil until they’re combined. (a double boiler is basically when you put your ingredients in a glass jar and then sit that glass jar in a pot of water on the stove)
Add the beeswax and continue to stir.
Once everything has melted and is well blended, let it cool down.
Once it is cooled but still liquid add Lavender and Tea Tree and Frankincense essential oils.
Continue to blend.
Transfer to a glass container or jar (must be glass).
Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
It will stay a bit softer at room temperature which may make it easier to apply.
WHY THESE OILS?
Lavender is very soothing for the skin and reduces the appearance of skin imperfections.
Tea Tree is renowned for its cleansing qualities and for revitalising the appearance of skin.
Frankincense also has soothing and beautifying properties that are used to help reduce the appearance of skin imperfections.
