Tips to Tweak This Recipe
You can also add Wheat Germ Oil to this recipe, but reduce the quantity and prepare small batches in that case, as its shelf life is very low.
I also add Aloe Vera Gel to this recipe and in that case, make sure the recipe is emulsified. I use Beeswax to help with emulsification.
I infuse the Coconut Oil with Calendula Flowers to improve the benefits of this recipe.
You can add any other Essential Oils of your choice other than the ones listed here, including Patchouli Essential Oil, Eucalyptus Essential Oil, Cajuput Essential Oil, etc.
If you have dry skin and want to make this recipe richer, you can also add Cocoa Butter. You can add equal quantities of Cocoa and Shea Butter.
Why Use this Recipe?
This recipe heals and soothes your skin, thanks to the healing ingredients like Neem Oil, Borage Oil, Grapeseed Oil and Coconut Oil, all known for their abilities to fight against skin problems like Psoriasis, Eczema, Dermatitis, etc.
Shea Butter is for nourishment, without adding a lot of richness to the product, but Cocoa Butter is a good add-on if you don’t have acne related problems. It helps form a protective layer and heal dried skin faster and restores skin’s elasticity.
Using this cream has shown considerable improvement in those enduring skin conditions. Not just Eczema or Psoriasis, even skin problems like Ringworm can be prevented due to antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of these ingredients.
Lavender Essential Oil is known for soothing, while Tea Tree Essential Oil helps fight skin conditions.
