Inflammation, itching, redness and additional discoloration. All of these things can make life a little more than uncomfortable. If you're fine with constantly using antibiotics to combat the symptoms associated with psoriasis, eczema or rosacea then you can stop reading now, if not you may be interested in some natural solutions like essential oils.
Because so many of the ingredients are natural painkillers, antiseptics, anti inflammatory and antibacterials it's easy to understand how this ointment offers relief for itching and discomfort from swelling. What you don't realize is that these same oils actually promote skin regeneration so healthy skin cells will grow back after the healing of a damaged area.
There are more than 30 million people in the United States that have eczema. Many of them live right here in Las Vegas. The dry heat and lack of humidity make it easy for conditions like eczema to thrive. This skin-saving salve contains natural painkillers, antiseptics, anti-inflammatories, and antibacterials that all work together to soothe irritation from eczema. Applying it 2-3 times per day to clean skin will render results very quickly. Many other topical creams use unnecessary chemicals that aren't as effective long-term as would be desirable.

I'm not sure about the rest of the world, but I start my day off with a steaming cup of coffee. Every morning, without fail, you can find me enjoying the morning sun with my cup of coffee and not wanting to 'adult' until after 1 cup is completely finished. One morning, as I'm gazing into my cup of awesome, I wondered what I could do with coffee aside from just drinking it; after all there are a bunch of wonderful benefits for skin inside this miracle drink. Not long after, the coffee coconut lip balm was born in my kitchen and it's been pretty rad. For those of you not familiar with the greatness that is the coffee bean, let me list some of the skin benefits for you:
Crazy rich source of antioxidants that fight against free radicals that are very damaging to skin. The antioxidants in coffee help boost the bodies natural defenses & preserve skin cell energy. It protects against UV rays, inhibits DNA damage response, makes skin smooth and bright because of an ability to repair tissue, regulate cell re-growth and leads to retained hydration that can increase skin elasticity. Last, but not least, it enhances blood circulation while effectively reducing swelling.
Now, in order to get the coffee into the lip balm, I infused it with coconut oil prior to adding the coconut oil to the recipe. You can learn more about infusing oils by reading more here. The long and short of it, is put coffee in a tea bag and place it inside the coconut oil in a double boiler. Let seep for 3-4 hours on low heat. Strain and taa-daa! Coffee infused coconut oil! Easy and well worth the effort for all the added benefits of coffee on the skin, as you've just read above. Combine coffee and coconut oil and you've got one heck of a combination. Remember that coconut oil is antiviral, antimicrobial, antibacterial AND protects against UV rays. Seems like the sky is the limit with this combo. Adding in some shea butter only helps this right along bolstering the anti-inflammatory properties with an added ability to help heal cuts and abrasions; makes it seem like a good fit for those prone to cold sores or dry, cracked lips.
