We've got a simple and effective solution that you can whip up in no time.
With just three natural ingredients - Shea butter, coconut oil, and beeswax - you can create your own DIY lotion bar that's gentle on your skin and provides the relief your eczema-prone skin deserves.
1. Shea Butter: a skin-loving superstar. Its rich, creamy texture moisturizes deeply, reducing itchiness and promoting skin repair.
2.Coconut Oil: known for its incredible hydrating properties. It helps lock in moisture, making it an excellent choice for dry, eczema-prone skin.
3. Beeswax: Beeswax serves as the binding agent in this recipe, solidifying the lotion bar and giving it a convenient shape. If you're looking for a vegan option, try candelilla wax (you can purchase it on Amazon)
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
You'll need a few essential items before you begin:
- A double boiler or a microwave-safe bowl
- An ice cube tray
- A stirring utensil (a wooden stick or spoon works well)
- A clean, dry container for storing your lotion bars
Step 2: Melt the Ingredients
- In your double boiler or microwave-safe bowl, combine equal parts Shea butter, coconut oil, and beeswax. For a small batch, try 1/4 cup of each ingredient.
- Gently heat the mixture until everything is fully melted, stirring occasionally to ensure even blending.
Step 3: Pour into Molds
- Carefully pour the melted mixture into your ice cube tray. This is where you can get creative with shapes and sizes!
- Pop it into the refrigerator for 1 hour to solidify.
Step 4: Pop Out Your Lotion Bars
- Once your lotion bars have solidified, gently pop them out of the mold.
- Store them in a clean, dry container.
Step 5: Apply and Enjoy
- To use, simply warm the lotion bar between your hands or rub it directly onto your skin.
- The natural oils will melt on contact with your body heat, making it easy to apply.
- Massage the lotion into your skin, paying special attention to eczema-prone areas.
- Reapply as needed throughout the day to keep your skin moisturized and itch-free.
