    Hun Noah had really bad eczema and was always on anti Biotics and steriods. In the end I was so pissed off at him always being on these drugs that I reseached and made my own. Its now completly gone and we dont need to use anything at all.

    If you want I can give you the recipe.

    I use eumovate on Ella when hers is really bad, at the moment it's okish. She was breastfed too.

    Jonny and Frankie have this, both have been on steriod creams but I now use Dream cream from Lush and it works better than any other treatment!

    Right Im going to give out my secret recipe!

    Get some Shea Butter and put in in a container inside another container of boiled water to melt it down to liquid (like when you melt dowm chocolate) add some coconut oil and melt it down in the same way.

    Get some cold pressed olive oil (not normal cooking olive oil as this is refined differently) and add a load of rolled oats (just breakfast oats from super market for 40p) blitz them together in a blender and leave to sit for an hour before putting through a sieve of muslin cloth to strain out the bits. you will find your left with a cloudy oil, add this to your butter mix.

    Add a few drops of calendula oil and then pour into a pot and leave to go firm again in the fridge, you will be left with a golden colour butter which you can put in bub. Because its oil based and not water based like most eczema creams it takes longer to absorb into the skin so you only need to use it first thing in morning and again at night so it lasts a while and will keep for upto a year.

    If people are interested but dont want the hastle I will be making a batch soon for sale as I have a had a lot of requests for it from people I made it for last time round. I do also have a website all ready to go live with a load of info and shop to buy it from once I do sort it out.

    But if you do want to make it yourself you will nearly all the ingredience (apart from calendula oil and oats) for sale on this site

    Oh and its great for most skin irritations including sun burn. And can be used as a light sun block too.
