Homemade Eczema Cream Recipe

203 Flares 203 Flares ×

Two of my kids have eczema. I have it myself on and off.  It’s itchy and uncomfortable.  We have tried a lot of products to help get some relief, but none seem to have a magical solution.  I decided to try to make my homemade eczema cream recently, and have been quite pleased with the results.  It works quite well, and especially for my son, he likes that there’s not a girlie scent to the cream I made.

First, you’ll want to gather your ingredients.

Coconut oil (Organic is preferred)

Tea Tree essential oil

Lavender essential oil

Mixer

Container for your cream.  We had some Altoid tins that were almost empty so I just used one of those.  You can also purchase containers, but chances are that you have one in the house already that will do the job!)

Beat ingredients together until well blended (about 75-90 seconds) on low-medium speed

Spoon cream into container

Use as needed!

 

I help my four year old to apply this eczema remedy most of the time, but my 6 year old can usually apply it himself. I help with areas he can’t reach. I like knowing exactly what we’re putting onto their skin!
