As I have mentioned before I have eczema. My kids have eczema. Lotion is a major part of our lives. We spend a lot on lotion to ease our itching and painful dry spots. Recently I ran out of face cream and have been using some coconut oil instead. It made my face so soft I tried it on my eczema after showers. It has worked so well I decided to try and make a whipped face cream/body butter from it.
It was so simple! I just put about 2/3 cup coconut oil and 1 Tablespoon of vitamin E oil in my stand mixer. I also added 5 drops each of Young Living Frankensense and Lavender essential oils. I put the whisk attachment on and beat it for about 8 minutes stopping every few minutes to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Soon it looked like this:
So easy! It keeps this soft whipped feel when kept in a jar instead of the hard-at-room-temp coconut oil. I love it, I think I’m going to whip my homemade vick’s vapor rub too!
It is not only simple, it is cheap and all natural! The vitamin E is so good for your skin and the coconut oil doesn’t clog your pores like a petroleum based lotion. My eczema is actually improved, not gone but any improvement is a big deal when you have it as bad as my kids and I do. Thanks for stopping by :)
