Homemade Eczema Salve

eczema-cream-hands

Occurring mostly on the hands, face, knees, and elbows, eczema is a condition that causes skin to become inflamed or itchy, often resulting in dry or cracked areas. Some people confuse eczema with allergic reactions to plants or fabric, when eczema flare-ups are typically responses to food intolerances, hormonal imbalances, or digestive problems/leaky gut syndrome.

 

Types Of Dermatitis That Cause Eczema

Atopic Dermatitis:

The development of atopic dermatitis is typically attributed to a genetic mutation of the filaggrin protein in the skin. As the barriers between the epidermal skin cells break down, the skin becomes dehydrated and aeroallergens, such as dust mites or pet dander, can penetrate the skin. This often results in an inflamed area and itching.

 

Seborrheic Dermatitis:

This condition causes scaly or inflamed skin areas that have oil-producing glands, such as the scalp. Eczema in babies may commonly be caused by seborrheic dermatitis.

 

Contact Dermatitis:

This group of skin disorders results in reactions that are caused by coming in contact with causative agents. The outer layer of the skin, the dermis, is affected and the reactions can either be acute or chronic. This type of dermatitis is always itchy and may need to be remedied with salves, creams, or dietary changes.

 

Featured Salve Ingredients

Beeswax:

This is what gives the salve its thick, bulky texture, but that’s not why it is included in this DIY remedy. Beeswax works to form a layer on the skin, keeping the oils close to the skin to promote healing. Unlike petroleum-based skin care products, beeswax allows the skin to breathe and extracts water from the air to help hydrate your skin. Additionally, beeswax contains vitamin A, a nutrient that works to remove dead skin cells from the skin.

 

Rosehip Seed Oil:

Rosehip oil is a nutritional gold mine, containing linolenic acids that the human body cannot produce. The omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids also help to regenerate skin tissue and reduce the inflammatory flare-ups of eczema. The fatty acids are able to penetrate the skin quickly, so that the skin can quickly absorb it and begin healing.

 

Helichrysum Essential Oil:

This essential oil is beneficial for those with eczema because it is quite gentle for topical applications. Coming from a relative of the daisy flower, helichrysum essential oil helps to promote skin cell regeneration, which can help reduce redness and inflammation.

 

Ingredients For Salve:

  • 1 tablespoon beeswax
  • 2 tablespoons shea butter
  • 5 tablespoons rosehip seed oil
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea buckthorn oil
  • 1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
  • 10 drops helichrysum essential oil
  • 8 drops geranium essential oil
  • 2 drops tea tree oil

Instructions For Salve:

  • Microwave the beeswax and shea butter in a heat-safe glass bowl or measuring cup for about 30 seconds, or until melted.
  • Once it is melted, allow it to cool down before stirring in the rest of the ingredients. If you add the essential oils while it is still hot, the heat will cook off the oils. Make sure you thoroughly mix to combine all the ingredients.
  • Pour into a heatproof container, like a glass mason jar. You should only need a four-ounce jar, but you may have some extra left over. Store in a cool dry place.
  • This is a soft salve and it is easy to apply. The skin absorbs it quickly so you don’t have to worry about staining your clothes. Apply it a couple times a day to help reduce eczema.

    Q: When I use the OZ OIL my outer skin is very soft and subtle. However deep down in the skin I feel very itchy. I have been assuming this is the effect of the oil doing its job. After a few weeks I got the feeling that I should try to loofa off the top layers of skin so the under skin could rejuvenate its self. I suppose I am writing because I want to check to make sure that the deep itching truly is a positive healing process before I purchase another bottle. Also to prompt you for any other ideas you might have to help my condition. It is purely beauty based btw I don't have any skin illness.

    A:

    The itching is a natural side effect that a healing crisis is taking place. Keep using the Oxy Oil at your discretion.

    Q: My daughter has eczema that NEVER goes away. I need to do a blood cleanse and cannot find any suitable for her age group. I saw your children?s full body cleanse. Does this include the blood cleanse? Would this be sufficed? I also was wondering if you could recommend anything I can use topically to stop her itching? I am currently using oil of oregano mixed with EVOO at night for the bacteria and a mixture of oils to try to hydrate her skin during the day. I have tried everything and NOTHING works except steroid creams which I do not want to use. Please let me know your recommendations.

    A:

    My son had a very bad case of eczema (scratched so much he bled). He was cured/healed in 6 months. Purchase the Children's Detox and give him the liquids in water or apple juice. For external application, purchase Oz Oil (this is what helped to heal my son's skin inflammation) and rub this on her body a few times during the day. Bathe the child in warm water and sea salt (start of with one box). You can also bathe the child in herbs. Boil some Dherbs Detox Tea (2-4 bags) in a big pot. Let it cool down and pour the contents of the pot into the bath water. Let the child soak in this for about 30 minutes. Your child can heal! I saw a miracle performed with my son so I know eczema like all other diseases can be healed!

    Q: Dear herbalist, I would like to know if it's alright for me to alternate cod liver oil pill (omega 3) in between taking the blood and lymph cleanse.

Also I want to know if taking teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil is good for healing me of what I believe may be vitiligo, tenea vesicle or eczema (dermatitis). PLEASE HELP.

    Wewould suggest you perform our Full Body Detox. Also, purchase the Full Body Cleanse Companion booklet and perform some of the soaks mentioned in there.

    Q: I think this way is easier and faster to have your response. I currently have many skin problems. I first started having body rash and eczema around my lips. When the skin gets dry, it hurts, and I've been trying to moisturize the skin with using all natural Burt's Bees andor Hugo natural lotion, cream or oil. I tried sea salt soak and been taking Sen-Fen, Blood formula, Immune support, Anti-Viral, but it's not working and the symptoms haven't gotten better at all. My entire body is really itchy from rash, so I haven't been able to sleep well for the past 2-3 weeks. If you have any suggestions for life style, special drinks and foods or products I can use, please let me know asap.

    A:

    Greetings! You skin problems are explained in the article "SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDER" which I suggest you read. (visit articles section). When there's no physical healing, check the mind. Check out the NEW MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL and there is a chapter in there on using the mind to heal. Basically you are focusing too much on the problem and not the solution which is optimal health and well-being. You are telling yourself how you don't want these problems and by saying this subconsciously, you are keeping the problems. Have your permanently switched or changed your diet? If not, what are you waiting for? Your blood is begging to be purified. Herbs alone won't get the job done. Let go of worrying about the problem. Focus on enjoying life, getting back in balance and you will begin to heal!

    Q: I would like to know, if you have any skin care programs, for women age 50 and over. I am going to try the detox progarm as soon as possible. I truly believe that I am going to be very happy with the results. I am 51 years old, and I want to look and feel my best. I have a lot of belly fat, and that makes me feel uncomfortable, because some people will ask me, if I am pregnant. This seems very strange to me, because my stomach seems to be the main place, where all the fat is building up. I desire to have beauty inside and out. I want to be completely whole. If you have tips for skin care and body care, please let me know. Some people say that I look like I am in my forties, however, if I did not have all of this extra body fat, I could really believe what they are saying.

    A:

    The blood needs to be cleansed in order to enhance your skin and eliminate excess fat.

    We would recommend you perform the Full Body Cleanse which can help improve skin complexion, release weight, and detoxify, purify, rejuvenate, and strengthen the body and all of its eliminative channels.

    We also have a Facial Skin Kit that works to naturally restore the health of skin by helping to remove blemishes, hydrate skin, and even out complexion for resilient skin.

    Q: I did the FBD, the Antiviral Cleanse, and Electric Greens Cleanse. I tested negative for HSVII, (thank GOD). But, I have still been experiencing a lot of itching, and redness in the genital area (and they get worse around the same time periods that my genital herpes outbreaks used to flare up, though this just might be a coincidence). There aren't any big lesions, but sometimes there are small patches of red raw skin, (not cuts). I know that the body can eliminate toxins via the skin. Knowing this I am assuming that if I take in toxins, it is still leaving via the skin (correct me if I'm wrong).

    A:

    Great to hear! You tested negative. The energetic residual effect of the outbreaks are still there. Doesn't mean you have herpes though! Healing is not over with because of some test! You still have healing to do on the emotional energetic level. You are 100% correct about your body eliminating toxins Beloved! Because, the occurrences are on the vagina, you may need to address some past sexual issue or issues dealing with your Goddessness.
