DIY Eczema Cream
and if you like: rosemary oil (I did not have any)
Blend oatmeal until its like flour, we used the Ninja blender to get a good consistency with the oatmeal
Mix together oatmeal w.ith coconut oil, because coconut oil solidifies when it's cold, make sure to leave it out at room temp, add olive oil and mix all together. After we mixed everything up we put it in the fridge so it can harden and proceed to use. It feels very good!!
Why Oatmeal? Oatmeal has been used by our family for rashes and other skin ailments. Oatmeal when turned into a powder is known as colloidal oatmeal ... oatmeal is said to be anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-itch!
Coconut Oil: Antimicrobial ..it is said to have properties that fight fungal infections, keeps skin soft and promotes healing.. has anti inflammatory properties and moisturizes the skin.
Olive Oil: it penetrates deep into the skin and softens it. Olive oil is said to reduce inflammation and is natural, gentle and is said to hydrate skin.
There you have it!!! InshaAllah it will help others with eczema and dry skin. Use it as much as you like, its all natural made with 100% pure ingredients alhamdulilah!
Also I have read, in researching about eczema is that the key to helping eczema and preventing it is keeping the body hydrated, outside and inside. The creams used is half the part and the other half is keeping hydrated. SubhanAllah, I pray it helps other families, may Allah heal us all and make it a means of purification ameen!
