This vibrant green Hemp, Oat, & Shea Eczema Body Butter Bar is loaded with eczema conquering goodies. It gets its smokey green scent from the ingredients, so fragrance-sensitive users need not worry. It’s also wonderfully easy to apply thanks to the wonderful push-up tubes I’ve chosen to pour the body butter bar into. Feel free to swap the push-up tube out for an empty deodorant tube or a tin, but I sure love these adorable little tubes.
The first ingredient in these bars is unrefined shea butter (USA / Canada), which I’ve had lots of eczema-conquering success with. Shea butter is a natural skin care favourite, and for good reason. It’s a fantastic moisturizer, and soothes chapped skin where nothing else can. It has a characteristic smokey scent that I really like, but if you don’t, deodorized versions are readily available.
Next up—oat oil. Anyone who has suffered from chicken pox knows the soothing properties of an oatmeal bath for itchy, irritated skin. Oat oil is rich in antioxidants and tocopherols, and has a lovely silky feel on the skin.
Lastly, unrefined hemp seed oil. I chose the bright green, unrefined version, which is where this bar gets its colour. Hemp oil is high in Omega fatty acids, and has been praised for its effectiveness in treating eczema and dry skin.
All these great ingredients are tied together with a bit of beeswax, and that’s that. Four ingredients to soothe chapped, unhappy skin.

Weigh everything together into a small saucepan, and carefully melt over low heat (hemp seed oil scorches very easily!). Once melted, pour into either five 1oz/30mL push tubes or five 30mL/1 ounce tin.
