DIY Eczema Cream

Ingredients

  • 60 mg organic extra virgin coconut oil
  • 30 mg raw shea butter
  • 1/2 tsp vitamin E oil
  • 7.5 mg zinc oxide
  • 5 mg beeswax

Instructions

  1. Add coconut oil, shea butter and beeswax to a double boiler (on medium heat).*

  2. Once oil, shea butter and beeswax has melted, remove from heat and add vitamin E oil.

  3. Add zinc oxide and stir well.

  4. Use a spatula and scrape the mixture into a glass container with a lid.

Recipe Notes

*To make a double boiler, place a half-full pot of water on medium heat. Add shea butter to a stainless steel bowl and place on top of the pot.

*You should use a scoop or a spoon to scoop it out (not your fingers) and either wash it or discard it after using and use a new one next time - using your fingers can add bacteria to the cream.

*Recipe makes about three ounces of diaper cream.
