Say Goodbye to Dry Skin with the Ultimate DIY Whipped Body Butter and Hello to Eczema Relief

A few years ago when we moved from sunny, warm Texas to the depths of winter in Illinois I experienced dry skin like never before. And in no time, dry red patchy areas of eczema showed up on my skin.

The skincare regimen I had used in Texas for more than a decade didn’t work in the cold dry air of the north. Learning to get rid of eczema without steroid creams took time and dedication.

Finding Eczema Relief

I thought I was one of the unlucky few who suffered from dry skin. It itched so bad, I would compare it to the sting of a fire ant. But, as it turns out dry skin is very common, half of the population suffers from those itchy patches also known as eczema. 

Over time I learned that are several natural eczema remedies in can do at home. Here are four that made all the difference for me!

1. Staying hydrated can make a big difference in preventing dry skin. So, drink plenty of water and eat foods like a watermelon that have high water content.

2. Sleep can also affect your skin and not getting at least six hours can raise the likeliness that you’ll wake up with dry skin. Use this simple DIY sleep spray to help you get more zzzs.

3. Soaking in a milk bath with oatmeal and magnesium-rich Epsom salt can help to reduce inflammation and ease the itchiness. Try my three favorite recipes for a luxurious milk bath here.

4. Creating and applying an intense moisturizer with ingredients known to restore and repair skin without the use of steroids gave me the eczema relief I was searching for. And now I’m going to share this homemade body butter recipe with you!

How to Make The Ultimate Moisture Rich Lavender DIY Whipped Body Butter

Let’s Make It!

DIY Whipped Body Butter Ingredients:

How to Make DIY Whipped Body Butter:

Begin by adding 6 tablespoons of cocoa butter, 6 tablespoons of shea butter, and 1/2 cup of coconut oil into a double boiler. (If you do not have one, substitute for a glass or metal bowl over a pan of boiling water.)

Heat butter and coconut oil until melted, mixing often with a whisk.

Once melted remove from heat and add 1 teaspoon of sweet almond oil and 1 tablespoon of vitamin E oil to the mixture. Whisk well to combine.

Cover and place mixture in the refrigerator for one hour or until firm.

Using a hand mixer, whip until creamy and light. Add 1/2 teaspoon lavender essential oil and mix again to blend. Spoon whipped body butter into airtight containers.

NOTES:

  • Whipped body butter may seem extra moist after whipping, no worries it will firm up after a few minutes.
  • The last steps to chill and whip the butter together are essential for a smooth, silky cream. I know you’ll be dying to try it (especially if your skin feels like you just stepped in a fire ant mound) – but don’t skip the final steps.

        Thank Lory, you could try by doubling the shea butter if that is what you have on hand. Keep mind, shea butter melts on contact with the skin. So, it won’t be the same consistency, but still very moisturizing.. If you want to learn more about natural body butters, I have a helpful article highlighting each strengths – http://www.lifenreflection.com/all-about-body-butters/. Let me know how it turns out 🙂

        Thank you Sonia, I’m so happy you like this body butter. Isn’t it dreamy!! You don’t need to store in the fridge. It will last 2 to 3 months. The vitamin E is a natural preservative among all it’s other great benefits.
