Eczema is a chronic skin condition that often manifests during infancy and will go away after childhood, but unfortunately sticks around for many into adulthood. The scaly, dry rashes that can appear anywhere on your body can be quite a tricky and annoying thing to deal with, as they tend to be relentlessly itchy. While there is no cure, you can take steps in your life to improve your symptoms. These can include paying attention to what makes your eczema act up, such as a material of clothing or animals. Additionally, there are several creams and ointments available for people with eczema. We are going to test a recipe for an eczema cream that we came up with by researching several versions, and found this recipe to be the most effective.
This recipe is incredibly simple to make and uses all natural ingredients.
For this recipe all you need is:
- Shea Butter
- Geranium essential oil
- Cedarwood essential oil
- Lavender essential oil
- A clean small container
Follow These Steps:
- Scoop 1/2 a cup of shea butter into any small container.
- Add 20 drops of geranium oil
- Add 30 drops of cedarwood essential oil
- Add 20 drops of lavender essential oil
- Mix thouroughly, and use as needed. It's that easy!
* I recommend using on affected areas nightly, as it may interfere with daily activies *
Our subject is going to generously apply the mixture to the areas affected by his eczema every night for the next week, while we record its effects.
Because of the ingredients in this mixture, I have high hopes for the results. Shea butter is known for being an excellent moisturizer, due to its high concentration of vitamins that help to nourish the skin; it should be able to effectively combat the dryness that eczema causes. On the other hand, geranium oil has an abundance of benefits, which include reducing inflammation and balancing your hormones. While the former is an obvious advantage against eczema, it is also important that geranium oil is capable of performing the latter, since eczema can be caused by hormonal imbalance. Just these two ingredients alone seem enough to defeat the symptoms of eczema, but the lavender and cedarwood essential oils also help with skin restoration. On top of all this, geranium oil and cedarwood oil have proved to tighten muscles to reduce sagging as well as being an easy remedy to acne, which is always an added benefit. Hopefully, this mixture works as expected, giving our subject clearer, smoother, and more vibrant skin than ever!

I recommend testing a small area first for a few days to make sure you are not sensitive to the ingredients. It is also relevant to note that other factors of your everyday life can affect the severity of eczema. My test subject has stated that his eczema seems to breakout during stressful activities and gardening without gloves, so, along with applying the cream, it is best to try to stay clear of stress and similar activies.
