My Whipped Butter for Eczema
A few days ago, the water of my city was contaminated by diesel. The alert was not given quickly and I bathed my children with it. Which resulted in very strong outbreaks of eczema. My usual care seemed ineffective. To overcome this, I made this whipped butter and I must say that I was quite satisfied with the result.
I carefully chose the ingredients of this recipe:
shea butter : nourishing, it is suitable for dry and irritated skin as well as for babies
cocoa butter : softener but I admit that I also use it for its delicious delicious chocolate smell.
Beeswax : ideal for those with dry eczema, it relieves itching, and creates a protective film on the skin thus protecting it from the cold.
Calendula extract : helps to fight against irritation, redness, it has anti-inflammatory properties.
Vitamin E : Slows the rancidity of oils thanks to its high antioxidant content.
I want to clarify that there are different forms of eczema, so even if this butter is suitable for my children, nothing guarantees its effectiveness for someone else but it will always make you an excellent butter for nourish your skin.
- 100 g (3,5 oz ) shea butter
- 20 g ( 0,7oz) cocoa butter
- 7 g (0,3 oz) beeswax
- 3 tablespoons calendula oil extract
- 5 drops vitamin E
- If your container is made of glass sterilize it by plunging it into boiling water for a few minutes. If it's plastic rub it with alcohol.
- In a double-boiler, melt the cocoa butter with the beeswax then remove from the heat.
- Pour the liquid directly onto your shea butter. Mix to obtain a paste then let it cool completely.
- Whip the mixture by gradually adding the calendula extract. Add vitamin E and mix again.
- Make sure your container is dry before you put your butter in it. Don't forget to label your product (date and ingredients).
Trucs et Astuces
☛ If you wish to have good quality products, choose raw butters and raw oils, not deodorized and unrefined. Because the more a product is processed, the more its quality is affected.
☛ If you have dry skin, opt for olive oil or castor oil. If on the other hand you want a drier touch opt for sweet almond oil or grapeseed oil.
☛ If you choose a glass container I recommend those that are opaque (amber, blue etc ...) to protect your product from light.
