The first and most annoying thing about eczema is that it appears in dry and reddish patches making your skin itch pretty badly. The second thing is that researchers still haven’t discovered a treatment for such skin condition.
However, many people keep the eczema symptoms in check by using some natural methods as an alternative to over-the-counter creams. Actually, these natural remedies are science-backed and can rid you of skin eczema and its symptoms.
Moreover, I had to combine some of these natural ingredients in one jar to control my husband’s eczema. Actually, he struggles with dry, itchy and reddish skin patches for over a year. So, I mixed the following ingredients and create the perfect natural cream to relieve eczema and its symptoms:
- 1/2 cup of Shea butter
- 1/2 cup of coconut oil
- 1/4 cup of beeswax
- 1 tablespoon of raw honey
- 10 drops of lavender
- 8 drops of Frankincense
- 5 drops of Tea Tree Oil
- 5 drops of geranium essential oil
- Melt the Shea butter, coconut oil, and beeswax in a double boiler.
- Let the mixture cool slightly and add the raw honey along with essential oils.
- Mix well and pour into containers.
- Let the mixture cool until it hardens.
- Apply over the affected area 3-4 times a day until the dry patches disappears. Actually, the itchiness will be gone after the first applications.
Before going to sleep, take a nice and warm Colloidal Oatmeal Bath…
Colloidal oatmeal contains natural emollients that calm red, inflamed skin and ease uncomfortable irritation. It’s available as a finely ground powder that’s easy to sprinkle into a warm bath.
To reap the most benefits, soak for 10–15 minutes, then gently pat your skin dry with a towel and apply your favorite heavy-duty moisturizer.
…and don’t forget to wear skin friendly clothes.
Soft materials like cotton, linen, or Tencel feel gentle against sensitive skin. Avoid anything rough or scratchy, like wool. If you like wool for warmth in the winter, protect your skin with a base layer like a long-sleeved cotton shirt.
Opt for loose cuts, too, over anything that’s tight or restricting. Annoying pinching or tugging can become straight up unbearable when your skin is already itchy or in pain.
