About me

I am an aspiring writer. I spend most of my time balancing my work, my personal life and my craft. It is my hope that my craft and my work will one day be the same thing and I can spend more time on my personal life. I live with my boyfriend, my insane fluff ball of a cat, and two snakes. In what little spare time I have, I play video games, read, knit, and help out with the local conventions.

    Hi Amanda, I just have a question for you regarding your very old 2012 post about the amazing eczema lotions and creams you make. I have been searching for something like this to make for my 4 month old as the store bought ones seem to be full of chemicals and all kinds of nasties that I don’t want anywhere near my little bonny babe! Your recipes look wonderful. I’ve hunted down the ingredients and am very much looking forward to my impending alchemy in the kitchen!
    I just wanted to ask, in terms of the two different ones you make. The one with tamanu oil that you use in the shower, would you use this in the case of a flare up or as an every day thing? Is that the more medicinal one whereas the other is more of a moisturiser that you use every day?
    Also, seeing as this post is 3 years old now – are you still using the same recipe with good results? Have you refined it at all? Anything new to report?
    Thanks so much, I’d really appreciate any further info and I hope that your pain and scratching has all but gone!
    Sunshine and blessings from New Zealand 🙂

    • Hi Helen, I don’t really use the more solid lotions anymore. I stick mainly to the lotion that uses emulsifying wax and avocado oil. When it’s really bad, I use a store bought cream called Eucerin cream. It uses petroleum products, but man does it give me relief. It’s very thick and greasy. If you can find a combo of natural ingredients that do that, you might have some luck. Thus far, I haven’t tried.
