While many adults also have eczema, it usually appears in the first six months to five years of a child’s life. In fact, as many as 10% of all infants have some form of eczema. (source: https://nationaleczema.org/eczema/child-eczema/)
Although scientists aren't absolutely certain what causes eczema, we know that there is a connection to allergies - both environmental (like chemicals in laundry soap) and food (like gluten). (more info: http://articles.mercola.com/eczema.aspx)
I created this recipe to help calm the irritated skin and provide much-needed moisture. I sent samples to over a dozen people to make sure that the recipe worked as well as I hoped.
For some little ones, the results were immediate and amazing! However, there were a few kiddos who did not see lasting results from this recipe. There could be many reasons for that! In my experience, it takes time and effort to figure out the "triggers" for eczema. Everything from laundry soap to stress can cause this frustrating skin irritation. Recipes that utilize organic carrier oils and the right combination of essential oils can work amazingly well to heal the skin. But if the triggers are not identified and removed, the skin irritation may return.
So, give it a try for yourself and then comment below and let me know what you think!
*This is a 0.7% dilution which is safe for most children to use daily.
*This is a 0.35% dilution which is safe for most babies to use daily.
Measure the carrier oil into a glass beaker and add the drops of essential oils (slowly and carefully so you don't accidently get too many drops). Stir with a glass rod or bamboo skewer. Pour carefully into roller bottles or spray bottles.
Store in a cool, dark, dry place for up to one year. If you use a spray bottle, be careful not to spray into the little one's eyes or face! This recipe is so gentle, it can (and should) be used up to 6 times a day.
Make eczema rollons or sprays and offer them to friends and family who are suffering. They will LOVE you for it! (and you just might get them hooked on Essential Oils)
"What a difference! Thank you so very much! Her hands feel so much better! We have tried countless things and nothing else has worked. A miracle! I am telling you, using that has been night and day for her! I still cannot believe the difference. It really is truly amazing!"
"Hi, wanted to let you know that the baby eczema oil worked great on my grand daughter!"
Q: What about newborns and infants less than 3 months old?
A: Try the Soothing Carrier Oil without any EOs and see if that helps.
