Homemade Diaper Cream

I love this diaper cream! I think it works better than the store brands, and it has a much smoother/creamier application. And as a bonus, you aren't putting any harmful chemicals (like petroleum) on your little one's bottom. It's a lot like the homemade sunscreen, but with a couple added ingredients.

1/2 c. sweet almond oi
1/4 c. coconut oil
1/4 c. beeswax pastillies
1 T. shea butter
5 drops chamomile essential oil
10 drops lavender essential oil
2 T. arrowroot
2 T. zinc oxide

1. In a quart size Mason jar, combine the almond oil, coconut oil, beeswax & shea butter.
2. Make a double boiler by boiling a few inches of water in a medium pot. Place the mason jar in the water and melt the ingredients together over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
3. Once everything is melted, remove the jar and add your essential oils, arrowroot, & zinc oxide. Stir until incorporated.
4. Pour immediately into the glass jar you will store the diaper cream in. 

**Wipe out the mason jar with a paper towel & wash in hot water immediately**
