Oh, I’m feeling pretty clever right about now. Uh-huh.
I found a recipe for purely natural, homemade diaper cream and with a tiny tweak, it’s positively luscious!
And since I teach lots of classes to lots of expectant moms, it seemed like the perfect thing to make a zillion little samples of. So, as you can see…
that’s just what I did. But the thing about this stuff is–it’s really a perfect first aid cream as well. In fact, I’ve been using it all weekend to soften my cuticles, and heal a tiny cut on my thumb, as chapstick and on a dry patch of skin by my ear. I know. Random.
But the point is that this is some very universal, soothing, healing cream that has quite a few purposes…one of them just happens to be Diaper Cream. But the list goes merrily on– rashes, burns, scrapes, chapped skin, etc. Handy-dandy stuff I tell you.
I thought maybe you’d be so terrifically impressed that you’d like to make some of your very own.
So here, my darlings, is the recipe. Prepare to be stunned at how easy and fun it is and how earthy and zen you feel. You’ll see. :}
Natural Diaper Cream
1/2 oz. (2 Tbsp) beeswax
3-1/2 oz. fractionated coconut oil
3 drops doTERRA Melaleuca
3 drops doTERRA Lavender
Put the beeswax in a glass measuring cup and place in the top of a double boiler. Gently melt over simmering water, stirring until smooth. It may take a few minutes so be patient.
Slowly add the Fractionated Coconut Oil.
Remove from heat and add the essential oil, and stir. Pour into glass jar and allow to set.
That is it. Now aren’t you glad we’re friends?
