The Midwest winters are cold and dry!!! Are you familiar with that tight, itchy, stinging feeling of your skin begging for moisture?!? Regular lotions and creams weren’t cutting it anymore, so I created this ultimate healing cream, really just a trio of really good products that make up the best cream.
Oh and I forgot to mention, my son suffers from eczema and if not properly moisturized, it flares up really quick!!!
His Doctor always recommended for us to use Aquaphor on his eczema patches but my son didn’t like the feel of it. So I started mixing it with lotions and came up with this Healing Cream.
Here’s a picture of my son’s elbow before and after one application of healing cream.
His knees and wrists are like this too!
I have purchased the Aveeno Eczema cream time and time again but, it’s really expensive for the amount you get and we never get the same results.
Here is your shopping list:
4oz. Aquaphor Healing Ointment, &
4oz. All Natural Coconut Oil.
*You can use any lotion you like, I love Johnson’s because it reminds me when my kids were little.
*You can use the Aquaphor for Babies (sold in the baby department) or regular, my kids are older so I used the adult version.
In a stand mixer or in a bowl with a hand mixer, measure out your lotions, ointment, and coconut oil. I like to whip it in a mixer because it gives the cream a light consistency.
You can double or triple the recipe but, a little goes a long way!
Set your mixer to medium and let it whip away until it looks like a whipped icing.
Once whipped to perfection, dispense your Ultimate Healing Cream into a container with a lid. I used a 16oz. glass jar and it worked perfectly!
Keep the jar sealed when you’re storing it.
