Beeswax Cream for Eczema and Psoriasis – DIY

Are you looking for a cream that soothes skin inflammation and irritation? Give a try to this DIY beeswax cream for eczema and psoriasis!

Researchers reported that a natural combination of honey, olive oil, and beeswax can provide significant benefit to people suffering from eczema or psoriasis (see the link to the study in the source box at the end of this page). This is why I based my recipe on these 3 ingredients.

Also, research suggests that a honey mixture combined with neem oil may decrease the need for corticosteroids… Here we go!  Let’s add a few drops of neem oil to the mix!

This beeswax cream for eczema and psoriasis is not a cure – unfortunately. But it definitely helps soothe the symptoms of irritation, dryness, itchiness and inflammation.

It works well for me (I have psoriasis) and I got good feedback from other people too.

Ready to make this anti-inflammatory cream?

Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

A note about beeswax for eczema and psoriasis:

Beeswax has several healing qualities that can reduce the symptoms of eczema and psoriasis:

  • Beeswax provides a barrier against toxins from your environment and keeps your skin healthy.
  • It has anti-inflammatory properties and soothes skin irritation.
  • Beeswax contains vitamin A that helps heal damaged skin.
  • It also brings lubricating moisture to keep the skin smooth and soft.

A note about neem oil:

Neem oil is a very complex natural oil that contains over 140 active ingredients. It can be very beneficial for psoriasis and eczema, so I recommend that you put a few drops of this oil in the recipe.

It softens and moistens dry cracked skin, helps soothe the redness and irritation directly, through the steroid like effect of some of its ingredients. 

Neem oil generally enhances skin health and the natural immunity of your skin, which is one of the biggest factors in psoriasis.

Also, Neem oil is strongly antibacterial, and when used regularly it can help prevent skin infections that may aggravate or bring back psoriasis and eczema symptoms.
