Winter can be a very harsh time for those that suffer with skin issues. Eczema is no exception. Many things can be the cause of eczema. Common triggers for flareups are hot/ cold weather, diet, stress, detergent, pet dander, bathing in very hot water,  food and environmental allergies, etc... While changes can be helpful  they do not usually aid in soothing the existing issue. I created a few different products that aid in reducing the itchiness and moisturizes the skin during the winter. This is a very simple semi-DIY item you can make for relief in minutes. Check it out.

Supplies
a jar/ bowl with a lid

a mixer

 

Ingredients
2 oz of raw Aloe Vera Gel
1 tablespoon of Flourishing Scalp Nectar

6 tablespoons of unprocessed Shea Butter  

 

Why these ingredients?

Aloe Vera Gel: (for moisture) An inexpensive and very soothing  ingredient. It is a great substitute for water, in this recipe, because it is moisturizing and contains a ton of nutrients.

Flourishing Scalp Nectar aka FSN: (for treatment) No need for added oils or essential oils when using this product. It is heavily infused with soothing botanicals, emollient oils, healing herbs and more. It is a very balanced formula. For more info click here.

Shea Butter: (for a sealant) Is a rich butter that is very emollient. It is great for sealing in the moisture from the aloe, locking in the benefits of the FSN and giving it's very own smoothness to the application area as well.

 

Steps

Add everything to a bowl. Blend until well incorporated.

Store in an airtight container with a lid. Keep in the fridge when not in use.

Apply to affected areas (after bathing and before bed). 

 

Results

Finished product is a light, creamy highly effective moisturizer. Works wonderfully when applied to the scalp and body. Apply as needed and store in the fridge when not in use. Should be used within a week.
