I started making this cream years ago because my daughters suffered from unrelenting eczema. What I have learned is that eczema is oftentimes an external expression of an internal problem, which in one of my daughter’s cases was a dairy intolerance that caused flare ups any time she ate yogurt or drank pasteurized milk. We added a good probiotic (we use the one from Transformation Enzymes, available on Amazon) to her daily regiment and began using this cream when needed. We saw an improvement almost immediately. Within one week her eczema was completely gone. I am a believer in all natural remedies in almost all instances, but this just blew me away. In addition to skin care, we also use this cream for lotion, face cream, sunscreen, and heel repair cream in the summer, just by adding different ingredients to this amazing base. I hope it works well for you too!
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup unrefined coconut oil
- 30 drops of quality tea tree oil
- 10 drops of quality lavender oil
- 1 tsp. zinc oxide
Place all ingredients except zinc oxide in a glass jar. Place jar in warm area until ingredients begin to melt. You can also place the jar in a sauce pan with about 2 inches of water on medium to melt the ingredients. Once ingredients are melted, add zinc oxide and stir well. Store in a cool place. Apply liberally and re-apply as often as you think about it.
