Make Your Own Monday: Psoriasis & Anti-Itch Ointment

Image

 

Humans are itchy beings. Whether it’s allergies, bug bites, or a long standing skin irritation like psoriasis, chances are you have something in your medicine cabinet to combat it. 

And I have something better. 

My fiance has psoriasis, so when I started this blog and started exploring Pinterest, he asked me if I couldn’t find something to help. He was already a huge fan of my Magical Butter Lotion (we keep it on the nightstand and use it often) so he had faith that I could deliver. 

This ointment has three ALL NATURAL ingredients and all you need is a jar, a spoon and a microwave. 

I used coconut oil, olive oil, and steel cut oats – all ingredients used to soothe and soften skin, and the combination is magical.

You Need:

– Sealing jar

– Coconut OIL

– Olive Oil

– Steel cut oats

– Microwave safe bowl 

 

  1. Take 1/2 cup of coconut oil and microwave slowly, in about 15 second intervals, until fully melted. Stir until smooth. 
  2. Add 1/4 cup of olive oil and stir
  3. Take 1/2 cup of steel cut or old fashioned oats and blend them to a fine powder in a blender or food processor. I also added a handful of oats not cut for texture. 
  4. Stir the oats into the oil mixture and place in a jar with a lid that seals. 
  5. Set it in a cool, dry place for a few days.
  6. When it solidifies, it will have the texture of a thick Vaseline.
  7. Apply liberally and itches begone!

What do you use from your medicine cabinet every day?
