Last spring husband had a student in one of his classes who was having to leave class all the time for a sick baby. The child turned out to have a monster case of eczema and was very little, under 6 mos old, and nothing the docs rx'd was helping. The student confided in husband that he thought he was going to have to drop out because all his time and his wife's time was spent in dr offices or with a baby in pain. I make a cream for my own skin because nothing the dr's give or suggest helps me. I have done a lot of research and have come upon one that is easy to make, feels great and really helps heal. It is also much less expensive than many other creams or lotions. The best part is that it is all food grade ingredients which makes it totally safe. Almost every skin product I have tried ends up hurting and often makes my skin just fall apart, leaving big sores that kinda look like bedsores and hurt like heck. I put some of a fresh batch of cream into a jar and included a letter with the ingredients and the reason why I use each ingredient. I stressed that it is all food safe so it is safe for topical application in a way that most rx products are not. This semester husband has the young man in 2 classes again. Today he learned that the cream I sent did what nothing else did - it cleared up the eczema and now the baby is happy and healthy. The young man and his wife did have to make mroe of the cream because they still use it on the baby and on themselves. They passed the recipe on to a friend and a couple of relatives with similar skin issues and they also are much improved. This makes me feel good. I know how hard it is to have a baby that is sick and nothing you do helps to the point that you cannot continue with normal life and the whole family is stressed and miserable. I am so happy that it helped. At some point I may start making the cream for sale, but we are not at that point. I am just happy it helped. I get so frustrated with all the skin products out there. Companies don't seem to realize that the skin is the biggest organ we have and that it absorbs all those artificial and/or harmful ingredients that we put on it. So many of them are not even needed but we don't realize it until we have problems and trace it back to them. The older I get, the more sensitive my skin gets, and it is so hard to get a dr to understand this. I don't see why the more natural products are not what we reach for first, esp for skin problems. I turned to food safe ingredients and the difference is so incredible. The creams and oils I make feel so amazing and luxurious but would cost the earth if I didn't make them myself! If anyone wants the recipe, feel free to ask - it is easy and can be tweaked to fit your needs easily!
