  • Homemade Diaper Cream: A Healing Solution

This recipe will make enough to fill two 5-ounce jars (with a little extra).

Ingredientshealing-butt-cream

  • 3 ounces shea butter
  • 2 ounces olive oil
  • 7 ounces coconut oil
  • 1 cup (approx. 8 ounces) organic dried chamomile
  • 2 ounces beeswax

Directions

To make the oil infusion:

  1. Add shea butter, olive oil, and coconut oil to a large mason jar and secure lid.
  2. Place mason jar in a small saucepan filled with water on low.
  3. Allow the oils to melt, then measure in dried chamomile.
  4. Stir and secure lid.
  5. Allow to simmer on low for an hour (turning down heat as necessary to prevent boiling) – you can allow more or less time for this step, depending on how strong you want your infusion to be. I normally try to keep this between 45 minutes – 1 hour.
  6. Strain out the chamomile with cheesecloth.

At this point, there is normally about 10 ounces of infused oil to work with.

To make the diaper cream:

  1. Combine the warm (still liquid) infused oil and beeswax in a clean glass jar.
  2. Add beeswax and return to the double boiler.
  3. Keep the cream on low heat and stir until beeswax is melted.
  4. Pour into smaller jars.

To Use

Use generously on baby’s bottom, chapped skin, or even as an every-day moisturizer. It’s great for bigger kids and adults too! I keep some in our bathroom for guests because of the wonderfully comforting aroma of chamomile.
