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

If you’re looking for eczema relief, keep reading for the ultimate DIY whipped butter you can make at home!

A few years ago, when we moved from sunny, warm Texas to the cold, dark depths of winter in Illinois, I experienced dry skin like never before! Before we fully finished unpacking, dry, red, patchy areas of eczema showed up on my skin.

I truly wasn’t prepared for the cold weather, and there was no escape between it and the dry air indoors.

It wasn’t long before I realized the skin care regimen I had used in Texas for more than a decade didn’t work in the cold, dry air of the north.

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 painful fire ants in Texas.

But, as it turns out, dry skin is very common; half of the population suffers from those itchy patches, also known as eczema. 

If you’re included, read on as I share natural eczema remedies that work for me!

Finding Eczema Relief

Learning to get rid of eczema without steroid creams took time and dedication.

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

Natural Eczema Remedies

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

2. Sleep can also affect your skin. 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 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!

Your Dry Skin Will Drink Up This DIY Whipped Body Butter for Quick Eczema Relief

Let’s Make It!

DIY Whipped Body Butter Ingredients for Eczema Relief:

How to Make Eczema Cream:

Begin by adding 6 tablespoons of cocoa butter, 6 tablespoons of shea butter, and 1/2 cup of coconut oil into the top pot of a double boiler.

Fill the bottom pot with about 2 inches of water. Then, place the top pot over the bottom pot and heat the butter and coconut until melted, mixing often with a whisk. (If you do not have one, substitute for a glass or metal bowl over a pan of boiling water.)

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.

Next, using a hand mixer, whip until creamy and light. Add 1/2 teaspoon of 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.

    3. This recipe looks amazing!!! I don’t have cocoa butter…is there anything I could substitute..? I cannot wait to make this, Thanks for sharing!!

      1. lifenreflection says:

        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 – https://www.lifenreflection.com/all-about-body-butters/. Let me know how it turns out 🙂

    6. Ciao grazie per questa ricetta, l’ho appena fatta è bellissima! volevo sapere se conservarlo in frigo, oppure al buio. E per quanto tempo si conserva. Grazie mille 🙂

      1. lifenreflection says:

        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.

    7. Ashleigh Martin says:

      Hey, my mix has been in the fridge for an hour and a half and is still as runny as when I put it in.. Any helpful ideas? Thank you! : )

      1. lifenreflection says:

        Sounds like you melted it at a high temperature. Give it time.

    8. Hello! I just made this and so far I love it! I wound up with about half the amount the recipe says it will yield though and am wondering what I did wrong? I followed it step by step, I measured out the shea butter and the cocoa butter when they were solid, unsure if that has anything to do with it? Thanks.

      1. lifenreflection says:

        Probably needed to whip it longer. It can vary due to the temperature in the room and the temperature of the butter.

    9. mehnoor naz says:

      hey there, how long can this body butter last upto before expiring?

      1. lifenreflection says:

        Use it up in one to two months or add a preservative for an extended shelf life.

    10. Hi, can I put this whip into a pump bottle?

      1. lifenreflection says:

        I haven’t tried in a pump bottle. Let me know if you do.

    11. What’s a good preservative to add to make it last longer?

      1. lifenreflection says:

        Some like to use sodium benzoate or potassium sorbate. But, both are known allergens for me that cause dermatitis. You might try benzyl alcohol or isopropyl alcohol if you want to add a preservative.
