My daughter Malia has moderate to severe eczema during different times of the year.  She was born with it and it’s been a struggle throughout her 9 years.  Some months she is fine and other months it runs rapid.  We are in a month that it is pretty bad unfortunately.   When I took her to the doctor a month ago, he told us to do the same things as always… steroid creams and heavy store bought lotions.  Then he told me if it got really bad we should do BLEACH BATHS.  I just looked at him like he was crazy!  I don’t even use bleach in my house… what kind of doctor would tell me to use it on my child’s skin?  Apparently it’s a real thing, although I told the doctor that would not be happening.  He said “well, I know you don’t really like the medicine route and want alternatives.”  In other words, he was aware of my love for my wonderful ‘witchcraft snake oils.’  😉  We left the doctors office with little help, so I had to come up with a plan.  What I came up with is:  take a probiotic every night, use steroid cream only if necessary, and moisturize her skin like crazy.

My children are so used to living the oily lifestyle that when I used some store bought lotion on Malia the other day, she complained.  I was out of body butter and the chemical ladened store lotion was all I had.  Her skin was pretty bad and she needed something.  After 2 days of hearing her complain she didn’t want the lotion, I whipped her up some body butter.

The results were a bit different than the last body butter I had made, partially to the fact that I added more shea butter than coconut oil.  Or maybe I whipped it longer.  I’m not sure, but that’s the beauty of DIY, you don’t always get the same result every time.  I was in a hurry because I had to take my oldest stepson to work and I didn’t measure carefully.  The end product was actually pretty good though.  I used Frankincense and Lavender because of their healing properties for skin.  And when I checked her skin this morning, it looked better than it has for days.

This one’s a keeper!  I’m looking forward to using it on all the kids!

Happy DIYing 🙂

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
