Calendula & Spirulina Eczema Balm

Diperbarui: Apr 25


DIY Eczema Balm


Awal bulan ini eczema di telapak tangan saya kumat. Awalnya kulit jadi kering, pecah-pecah. I put Elemance Vera Gel religiously almost every hour. Tapi karena beneran lagi stress kerjaan, vera gel was not enough to memulihkan kondisi telapak tangan. Mulai dari kulit kering, mengelupas, eczema semakin parah dan kulit akhirnya robek – seperti kena paper cut di jari-jari dan telapak tangan, yang kalo cuci tangan perihnya tak tertahankan. I need a topical barrier repair mositurizer yang natural, tidak mengandung steroid to improve my skin condition.


Fortunately, I had calendula infused olive oil dan spirulina infused coconut oil in stock. Calendula is good to sooth irritated skin, sementara spirulina is good for reducing inflammation and improving skin moisture. So, here is my DIY eczema balm:


Equipment

  • 1 beaker glass

  • 1 glass stirrer

  • 1 mini spatula

  • 1 set sendok ukur

  • Balm containers


Ingredients

  • 1/8 cup calendula infused olive oil

  • 1/8 cup spirulina infused coconut oil

  • 1/8 cup cocoa butter

  • 1 tbsp beeswax

  • 1 tbsp a mix of rosehip oil, sunflower oil and neem oil

  • 2 gr frankincense essential oil

  • 2 gr helichrysum essential oil

  • Calendula petals


How to Make

  1. Siapkan semua bahan yang diperlukan.

  2. Masukkan beeswax dan cocoa butter dalam beaker glass

  3. Lelehkan beeswax dan cocoa butter dengan metode double boiler

  4. Setelah keduanya leleh, masukkan semua minyak yang diperlukan

  5. Stir until all dissolve evenly

  6. Angkat beaker dari api, tunggu 2 menit

  7. Masukkan essential oil dan calendula petals, aduk

  8. Tuang ke dalam containers yang sudah disiapkan

  9. Let it cool dan eczema balm siap dipakai!


Notes

Cara terbaik to treat eczema adalah moisture frequently. Using this balm every after washing hands.


Feel free to substitute cocoa butter dengan butter lain such as shea butter atau kokum butter


Ada berbagai pilihan essential oils to treat eczema, such as: lavender, frankincense, bergamot, chamomile, tea tree, helichrysum, eucalyptus, peppermint and so on. Pick the one(s) you have in stock!


Neem oil ini punya sifat antibacterial, it is also a strong analgesic (alias pain killer), sehingga cocok dipakai untuk bikin eczema balm. Pakai neem oil secukupnya. It smells so strong!
