Natural Mamma Dry Itchy Skin Salve is a blend I made up for my daughter’s “winter skin” (read: eczema).
This blend of organic oils and herbs is soothing to the skin giving it what it needs to revitalize and nourish its self into soft, supple skin.
Ingredients: Organic Olive Oil, Bees Wax, Cocoa Butter, Organic Chamomile, Organic Marshmallow root, Organic Nettle, Organic Plantain, Organic Yarrow, CPTG Lavender Essential Oil, CPTG Melaleuca Essential Oil, CPTG Geranium Essential Oil, CPTG Frankincense Essential Oil
I have refined and tested this recipe with several friends until it was just right. My daughter (2 years old) asks for this salve constantly and lubes her self up with it. She just loves it!
You can purchase this salve from my herb store HERE. If you would like a custom salve without the coconut oil, or one of the herbs on the ingredient list, we can work together to customize this recipe to fit your needs.
Here is my original recipe for Ellie’s Eczema Salve if you like to make your own! See the original post here.
- ½ c Nettle/olive oil infusion
- ¼ c Plantain/olive oil infusion
- ¼ c Chamomile/olive oil infusion
- ¼ c Callendula/olive oil infusion
- 1 oz Beeswax
- 4 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tbsp almond oil
- 15 drops Melaleuca Essential Oil
- 15 drops Lavender Essential Oil
- Using the double boiler method (see here: http://wp.me/p2pBvv-Du) melt the bees wax, oil infusions, and coconut and almond oil together.
- Once it is all incorporated remove from heat and add essential oils.
- Pour into glass container and let cool before use.
- Use every morning and evening before bed or as needed to help treat dry, itchy, irritated skin.
