- 1/4 cup of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
- 3/4 cup of Raw Unrefined Organic Shea Butter
- 5 drops of Lavender Essential Oils (100% essential oils, we use Young Living)
- 3 drops of Melaleuca Essential Oils (100% essential oils, we use Young Living)
- Glass container to store with lid (no plastic)
- 1 tablespoon of beeswax (optional)
- Coconut oil is just absolutely amazing and you can use for anything! It has antifungal properties and will help with keeping the skin healthy.
- Shea butter will help with keeping the skin smooth.
- Lavender is known as the universal oil and helps to moisturize the skin.
- Maleluca is also known as Tea Tree Oil and it helps with immune system and very beneficial for skin use.
Step 1: Combine the coconut oil and shea butter in a clean glass bowl. Using a handheld mixer mix together both ingredients until light and fluffy.
Step 2: Add your 3 drops of Melaleuca and 5 drops of Lavender essential oils.
Step 3: Using the handheld mixer blend everything together.
Step 4: Using a clean spoon scoop out your Rash Cream into a clean glass container. Please, do not use plastic when using essential oils. Oils draw toxins out of our bodies and it will do the same for plastic items.
This will make a nice and smooth cream for your babies bottom. I apply a bit on my youngest daughters bottom after taking a bath and we haven't had a diaper rash issue in a very long time. I just wished I had known about this when she was younger because she had the worse diaper rash I had ever seen, even while using cloth diapers!
Alternative Diaper Rash Cream using Beeswax:
If you are looking for a thicker consistency, more like paste you could add beeswax. Unfortunately, I have some on the way so I wasn't able to show pictures but it's very simple and similar to the previous cream.
Instead of mixing everything together with a blender, you will first add the coconut oil, shea butter, and the beeswax into a clean sauce pan and melt everything together. You will then pour into a small glass bowl, add your essential oils, and then with a mixer you will blend everything until nice and creamy. Pout into a small glass jar with a lid and allow it to firm up and cool.
Remember, a little goes a long way!
I really hope that you enjoyed reading and will try making your own natural diaper rash cream for your babies or young children!
