Calamine lotion is used to treat sunburned skin, mosquito bites, other bug bites, eczema, rashes, poison ivy, poison oak, and more. This is a recipe for homemade calamine lotion by Claire of Everyday Roots. It’s more cost-effective than buying commercial calamine lotion.
One thing I really like about Claire’s recipes is that she explains the purpose of each ingredient. This can be really helpful. She also provides sources for getting the ingredients. The recipe itself is very simple to prepare.
One consideration is that homemade calamine lotion can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. Because it has a short shelf life, Claire recommends keeping a jar of the blended ingredients so that you can mix up a batch of the lotion whenever you need it.
