My itchy skin balm remedy is one of my most requested potions–especially among family members who come in contact with poison plants!

So if you also have a habit of walking through poison/itchy plants then you’ll want to make this itchy skin remedy.

You’ll need the base:
1/3 c coconut oil
2 TBSP beeswax
2 tsp Shea nut butter (I ended up using a tablespoon and it still worked)
Essential oils (listed below)

You can use this same base for different remedies:

For impossibly itchy skin:

10 drops each of frankincense, lavender, and tea tree (I only use doterra #myeobox)

For skin things that won’t go away:

  • 5 drops oregano
  • 10 drops lemon
  • 15 drops tea tree

Dry and flaky skin combo

(you can use the itchy skin for this too but if you want something new):

  • 5 drops geranium
  • 5 drops Roman chamomile
  • 10 drops lavender
  • 10 drops patchouli
