How to Use: Gently dab a small amount onto sore itchy skin with clean fingers, preferably at bedtime and then try not to scratch. You only need a bit.
For more information on how to manage your skin problems, please refer to my eczema page, you need to do more than just apply a balm – heal your self from the inside with good food and nutritional care. And avoid using unnecessary chemicals and artificial perfumes wherever possible, particularly in washing powder!

Every ingredient in scratchy balm has been carefully selected by me after much research and trial and error.
Here’s just a few reasons why it works so well:
Organic Shea Butter: contains Vitamins A, E and F which are particularly helpful for damaged skin either by sun or general pollution. Vitamin F is a rejuvenator to the skin. What makes Shea butter so useful in skincare is its ability to penetrate the skin without clogging pores, allowing the skin to breathe. It makes it amazing for any very dry skin conditions.
Organic Avocado Oil: containing high amounts of Vitamin A, B1, B2, D, and E, amino acids, sterols, pantothenic acid, lecithin, and other essential fatty acids. It is renowned to have healing and regenerating properties. It is very useful when treating sun, climate or chemical damaged skin that is dehydrated and undernourished. It is reported to help regenerate and rejuvenate the skin as well as soften the skin tissue. Organic Avocado oil is well known as a nutrient for penetrating dry skin and resolving endless skin problems.
Evening Primrose Oil: is a rich source of gamma linoleic acid, an Omega 6 fatty acid that is needed for our cardiovascular, immune, nervous, and reproductive systems, and to maintain healthy cells and body functions. It is also anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and has been shown to be effective for the following conditions: Acne, Rosacea, Signs of ageing, Eczema and nourishes the scalp, hair, and nails.

As well as working on eczema, many parents have also reported that Scratchy Balm clears up molluscum, a happy mum told me, “Your scratchy balm cured both my children’s molluscum within a couple of weeks and my son had been covered in them for over a year!”
