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 itchy and scratching.
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 diy 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.
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.

Here is my recipe for homemade eczema cream:
- 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
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.
Place the coconut oil, cocoa butter and beeswax in the bowl and heat until melted (will turn to oil).
Remove oils from heat and add vitamin E oil.
Let the oils cool until they turn into a gel-like substance. Make sure you stir it occasionally so the oils don't harden.*
When the oils are slushy, slowly add the aloe vera gel and mix with a hand mixer.
*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.
*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 it is quickly absorbed.
