Homemade Eczema Cream

Do you suffer from eczema? If so, I bet you would like to eliminate eczema once and for all. Believe me, I know what it’s like to have eczema so badly that it wakes you up in the night because it is so itchy and sore.

Below I explain how I eliminated eczema and how you can to. However, until you are able to cure your eczema, I will show you how to make a homemade eczema cream to help ease your symptoms.

This natural, deeply nourishing homemade eczema cream is made with aloe vera gel, coconut oil, cocoa butter, beeswax, vitamin E and lavender essential oil.*

Aloe vera gel and lavender essential oil help to heal wounds and reduce inflammation (which are two common symptoms of eczema). Coconut oil and cocoa butter help to hydrate and repair the skin. Vitamin E oil is an anti-oxidant that is amazing for skin rejuvenation. Beeswax is also anti-inflammatory. In addition, beeswax provides a protective barrier to help seal in moisture; this is an important component of a quality eczema cream.

I made this homemade eczema cream specifically for my hands. However, I also use it on my face sometimes, as well as all over my body. It makes my face and skin feel incredibly soft, and this softness lasts all day long! This homemade eczema cream is a bit greasy when first applied. Yet, that greasy feeling doesn’t last long because this homemade eczema cream absorbs very quickly.

How to eliminate eczema altogether

Do you want help to eliminate eczema for good? I’ve suffered with eczema for many years. I made a few very important changes to my diet and, as a result, I finally have my eczema under control. I removed commercial wheat, cow’s milk, lactose, refined sugar and yeast from my diet.

You may not have to remove all of these foods from your diet. It may be that you only need to remove a few troublesome foods or you may need to remove a different set of foods altogether.

Homemade Eczema Cream with Aloe Vera Gel
Ingredients
  • 3/4 c coconut oil
  • 1/3 c cocoa butter
  • 1 oz beeswax
  • 1 tsp vitamin E oil
  • 10-20 drops or more of lavender essential oil
  • 1 c aloe vera gel
Instructions
  1. Use a double boiler on low-medium heat. To make a double boiler, fill a pot half full with water then place a steel bowl on top. If you don't have a steel bowl, you can use a mason jar. 
  2. Place the coconut oil, cocoa butter and beeswax in the bowl and heat until melted (will turn to oil).
  3. Remove oils from heat and add vitamin E oil.
  4. Let the oils cool until they turn into a gel-like substance. Make sure you stir it occasionally so the oils don't harden.*
  5. When the oils are slushy, slowly add the aloe vera gel and mix with a hand mixer (or KitchenAid mixer).
Recipe Notes

*Make sure you do not let the oils harden past a slushy consistency or you will not be able to combine the aloe vera gel and oils as they will just separate. No amount of mixing will fix this.

*You can use a different essential oil if you like. Lemon, lemongrass, orange and tea tree essential oils are also good choices since they are helpful in healing and nourishing the skin.

That’s it, your homemade eczema cream is ready. Transfer your homemade eczema cream to a glass bottle and it’s ready to use! 🙂

  1. Can I refrigerate this? Self life?

      Hi Elizabeth,
      I don’t see any reason why you can’t refrigerate this cream. In fact, some aloe vera gels must be kept refrigerated. Keeping it refrigerated will only prolong the shelf life, which is about 6 months as is. I will say though, refrigerating the cream may make it quite hard. But I recommend using a scoop anyway (as opposed to your fingers) because it will also help to preserve the cream. I hope this answers your question. 🙂
