Have you tried using shea butter? Shea butter is sort of a miracle ointment. 'Shea butter is a fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree. It is ivory in color when raw, with more processed versions being white in color, although it is commonly dyed yellow with borututu root or palm oil. It is widely used in cosmetics as a moisturizer, salve or lotion.'

Shea butter can be used to make a host of diy products, such as lotions, body butters and lip balms. Shea butter has been known to relieve dryness associated with eczema and many other skin ailments. I use shea butter in almost all of my handmade products! So, if you want to try shea butter for yourself, follow the instructions below for a simple diy shea butter product, or you can visit my online shop and try any one of my wonderful handmade shea butter products where i've done all the work for you!
