For a few years I have been plagued by hand dermatitis, new shampoos, laundry detergent, lawn grass, basically anything that has a smell; if my hands touch it I get an itchy rash with red bumps. I received medication from the doctor for this in the past - it smells awful and takes about 10 days for it to work.

Last weekend I went into the garden to pull weeds, but I forgot my gloves, by that night my hands were itchy and raw. I pulled out the medication I used last time this happened and rubbed it in and went to bed smelling awful!

When I woke up I rubbed some more on - meanwhile my hands were still itching and the bumps were multiplying. As luck would have it, I forgot the creme on the kitchen counter when I went to work. All morning my hands were driving me crazy with the itching!

About lunchtime, I decided there HAS to be something I can do. I checked online for essential oils that would help with dermatitis and realized that I actually had all the oils I needed with me! So in a paper cup I squirted some unscented hand lotion I had at my desk, mixed in 2 drops each of Lavender, Geranium, Rosemary, and Helichrysum, then rubbed the mixture all over my hands. They felt wonderful almost instantly!

That night when I got home, I made myself a batch using coconut oil instead of the hand creme. I rubbed it in a couple of times a day, the itching was gone, and all the bumps disappeared within 2 days. As a bonus it smells wonderful! All my coworkers commented on the beautiful smelling had lotion I was using - when I told them it was something I "whipped up" they all wanted a batch too!

An even bigger bonus to me was how quickly I was healed as opposed to the medication I used which caused the bumps to dry up and turn white- leaving an ugly scaly look on my hands. This homemade lotion leaves my hands soft, moist and no white spots.
