Fundraiser: Body Butter!

I am raising money for the nonprofit expenses using whatever crafts I can think of. The latest is this body butter you can order on my Etsy Shop. Check it out!

I have eczema on my hands and I could not find anything to help it. It lasted several months and became cracked and bled. My hands got infected and the itchy rash spread down to my wrists. I tried ointments, lotions, creams, antibiotic ointment, bandaids, washing in reverse osmosis water, and nothing helped. Then I gave up and tried essential oils. Those only made it worse. A kind clerk at Whole Foods suggested perhaps I am allergic to fragrances. So I tried plain coconut oil for one month. That helped it finally start to heal but then it reached its limit and the itching and cracked skin began to come back. I found this recipe online and tried it out. My hands are smooth now, and as long as I use this after I wash my hands, it stays at bay.

The ingredients are all natural: organic coconut oil, organic shea butter, olive oil, and beeswax. I will be trying out other natural combos in the future but for now, I have 12 of these ready to go, so order them quickly, if you have skin and like it to be soft! =) Also, the jars are really cool looking and you can reuse them when you’re done with the butter.

  1. Our granddaughter has eczema and her mom wants me to put lotion on when I bathe her. I think I’ll try coconut oil, and maybe some of your special blend.
