All-natural recipe for a neem oil based eczema skin balm. Includes detailed instructions via a do-it-yourself video and links for ingredients
A couple of years ago I published the recipe for making your own Healing Neem Balm for eczema and psoriasis. Since then, it’s become my top post and it receives hundreds, and sometimes thousands of views per day. Those who have made it have left comments in my original post and through email to let me know how it has helped them in their enduring battle against dermatitis.
The recipe is easy but showing how to make the balm through the video below makes it even more simple to understand. So this week I’ve set out to make one for you that not only shows the ingredients and process but you also get to see the consistency of the final product and how it looks when you apply it to your skin.
