A Powerful Healing Lotion for Eczema
I developed eczema since I moved to Chicago years ago. The situation got exacerbated after my pregnancy with my first child.
For those who are familiar with eczema, you know it is such an agonizing skin condition. To what extent? Well, some people sleepwalk, I used to sleep scratching all night long. I would wake up in the morning and find my hands or legs scratched to bleed.
I had determined to find a natural healing solution. Yep, you’ve guessed right, this is it!
As I am writing this article, we just had one of the driest winters in Chicago. This body lotion stood strong and kept my skins moisturized and calm.
What ingredients do you need to make this powerful Anti Aging Healing Lotion at home?
The key ingredients include beeswax, shea butter, sweet almond, and jojoba oil. Essential Oils such as Roman Chamomile, Frankincense, and Geranium are an optional but highly recommended add-on.
Beeswax is notable for its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory ability. I use organic white beeswax pellets in this recipe.
Shea butter is coming from the nut of the African shea tree. It provides deep moisturizing, nourishing, and anti-inflammatory power.
I use raw unrefined African shea butter in this recipe.
Jojoba Oil and Sweet Almond Oil are among the best carrier oils. You can use them directly on the skin. I have incorporated both for my Anti-Aging Serum too.
As for the three handpicked essential oils, Roman Chamomile helps soothe the skin. Frankincense supports anti-aging. Last but not least, Geranium offers a pleasant fragrance to the lotion.
What Tools do you need to make this Anti Aging Healing Lotion at home?
You will need quality glass measuring cups to hold beeswax, shea butter, and oils. A wok or deep fry-pan to heat the glassware.
These heat-resistant mini-rubber spatulas are helpful handy tools. I use them to mix, stir, and scrape.
For the cooling process, a large washbasin can hold ample cold water and ice cubes.
For storage, I recommend this 4-oz amber wide-mouth jar. They are convenient to use and easy to clean.
How to make the Best Anti Aging Healing Lotion from scratch at home?
The first is to melt beeswax, shea butter and carry oil together and mix well for anti aging healing lotion
Turn the heat to medium-high, add about 4-6 cups of water into a wok or large deep fry-pan and bring it to a boil. Then turn the heat to medium-low and add the glass measuring into the wok or pan.
Keep the water in a simmering, boiling state by adjusting the heat from medium to simmer.
Heat the beeswax, shea butter together with jojoba oil and sweet almond oil evenly until beeswax and shea butter melt.
Remember to chop shea butter into thin small pieces first to help the melting process.
Cool the liquid mixture and turn it into a consistent cream
Soak the glass measuring cups halfway in cold water with ice cubes. Drop in the essential oils. Continue to churn, mix, scrape the solids off the glass wall using the mini spatula, until the whole thing turns creamy.
All done! Bottle them up using the 4 oz. amber glass jars and use in the next 6 months.
