Make Your Own Diaper Cream...Cloth Diaper Safe!

Oh yes! Let's talk about butts for a second; baby butts to be specific. They can certainly get a bit sensitive with all those special gifts they bless us with about every 2-4 hours. Can you tell I have a newborn at home? Diaper creams can get expensive and aren't exactly made with the safest products out there.

My cousin is the genius of all things "baby" and "natural". She is one cool chick.

A list of what makes my cousin COOL:
  1. She's a veterinarian. COOL.
  2. She is all about baby wearing. COOL. 
  3. She MAKES...yes, makes...her baby carriers. 
  4. She is super crazy crafty when it comes to cloth diapering; even makes her own inserts! COOL
  5. She has chickens and grows chestnut trees. For real! She is THIS cool.
But, today she topped it all off by sharing her recipe for DIY Diaper Cream that is all natural and even safe for cloth diapers. You see, with cloth diapers, you have to be really careful about what you wash them in and what creams you use because they can make the diapers/inserts non-absorbant. Not exactly a good thing when we're talking about diapers. You feel me?

So, let's get down to "business." Here is this awesome and super easy receipe! ENJOY!

All Natural "Cloth Diaper Safe" Diaper Cream
Add coconut oil, shea butter, and bees wax into an uncovered mason jar. Place the mason jar into a sauce pan that is have full of water (homemade double boiler!). Bring the water in the sauce pan to a rolling boil and allow the contents of the mason jar to slowly melt to a completely liquid state.

Carefully remove the mason jar from the sauce pan and place it in the refrigerator for two hours to cool.

After two hours, remove the mason jar from the refrigerator and add the lavender essential oil. Then beat with a hand mixer until smooth. Place the beaten cream in to jars. 

**Makes three, 4oz jars.
