  1. I like to add hemp seed oil, oatmeal , evening prime rose extract and green tea extract with a little coffee butter. Works great for me

  2. Hi I’ve been experimenting in making a exzema cream for my grandson I used 4 oz pure unrefined organic Shea butter
    1 tablespoon of rosehip oil
    I tablespoon of unrefined coconut oil
    1 table spoon of jojoba oil
    10 drops of lavender
    10 drops of frankincense
    And she said it’s working a treat ?

  3. My 3yo son also has bad eczema as well as dairy and soy aleieglrs (plus dust, pets, citrus, nuts, etc etc etc). He was breastfed, so we didn’t have to worry about formula but now he is drinking rice milk. I would suggest looking to see if there is a rice-based baby formula out there. Rice milk doesn’t have the same nutritional makeup as cow’s milk or even soy milk but it’s something he can drink and that’s been a huge relief as it is!

  4. With internet retailing booming, it provides a unique selling point that
    differentiates itself from all the other websites out there.
    This is something you must always be ready for as a seller on e – Bay.
    There are many instances, where people complain that
    cosmetics purchased via websites offering cheap cosmetics wholesale are fake and they include harmful ingredients.

    • Yes absolutely, you can use another essential oil it’s your preference

    • my son has severe eczema and the only thing I did was I used Crisco cooking grease it doesn’t have to be name brand and I put it in the fridge and let it get cold I grease him up three times a day now that he is in school he uses it when he gets up in the morning and after he takes his bath at night and it cleared it up its almost non existent he still has an occasional flare up but its under control and all I use is cooking oil I use the one in the can not the one that’s in the bottle melted but it will work as well. I hope it helps its hard on the little guys and I feel so bad for them. Good luck

  6. Thanks for this awesome website about shea butter and how to use it well. As for diet and eczema, the thing that helped me the most was removing as much sugar as possible from my diet. I used to be a serious sugar addict and have given up probably 90% of the sugar I used to eat. Now whenever I eat more than the smallest amount of sugar, the eczema comes back. Shea butter cream has helped me keep my skin healthy as well.

  7. My son has eczema and we have found that he was allergic to cows milk. Removing cow’s milk (or cow’s milk formula) from diet helps a great deal. Using tea tree oil mild handmade soaps works wonders too. Oh and of course raw shea butter!

  8. My baby has eczema on his face, hands and arms. I’ve been taking raw shea butter and mixing in a few drops of evening primrose oil, just in my hand until combined. It only took about 4-5 days of putting this on his skin, and the eczema vanished. I did have to put it on about 5 times/day (he’s a drooly baby). If I reduced it to only 2-3 times, the eczema came back.

    • Be careful with evening primrose on a baby! It is used as anti depressant and to treat female issues. I would use lemon oil instead I do this for a patient with

  9. Hi, my name is Erika, I am new to this site and was wondering if anyone ever tied to add vitamin E or Olive Squalane when making whipped shea butter. My Little Boy and myself both suffer from Eczema so use black soap to wash but when it flares up although shea butter on its own makes the patches better but the eczema does not completly go away. So my question is how much of these oils to add to the shea butter?

    • You can add 2oz of shea butter to 2 oz. unrefined Shea butter
      1 tablespoon Wheat Germ oil
      15 drops Sandalwood essential oil
      15 drops Lavender essential oil
      4 oz. empty clean jar

  10. wonderful site,a giver never lack pls.keep on establishing ur team of a potentiential enterpreneur.remain.bless

  11. My son had eczema really bad on his knuckles, elbows and ankles. I treated him with tea tree oil and raw shea butter and you can’t even tell he had it! Wonderful product!

  12. I have had eczema for years and suffered from the itching and skin discoloration.

    After changing my diet, adding a good multivitamin and using both shea butter and black soap on my skin, this year, for the first time, the eczema is under control.

    I just wash daily with the soap and moisturize with the butter and I’m good to go!

    I plan to make whipped butter to sell, because I’m a believer!
