Homemade Diaper Cream
Commercial diaper cream can be made of ingredients that can irritate a baby’s delicate skin. This easy recipe is simple, natural, and great for soothing and softening skin in a safe way. While coconut oil is an excellent moisturizer, the majority of the soothing benefits are due to the addition of Lavender and Tea Tree essential oil.
¼ cup virgin coconut oil
5 drops Lavender oil
3 drops Melaleuca (Tea Tree) oil
1 Melt coconut oil in glass cup using microwave or double boiler.
2 Add essential oils and stir briefly.
3 Allow mixture to cool to restore the original consistency of the coconut oil.
4 Store in a sealable glass container and leave in cool place. Apply as needed.
Tip: This recipe makes 2 ounces, and should last as long as the expiration date on the bottom of your essential oil bottle, or for the shelf-life of your coconut oil of choice.
