baby butt balm (cloth diaper safe)

One awesome thing about cloth diapers is your little one is far less likely to get diaper rash. On the flip side, though, when they do get diaper rash, regular diaper rash creams can’t be used. Not only do they stain the diapers, they can also mess with the absorbency! That’s no good. The other downfall to store-bought diaper rash creams is most of them are filled with all sorts of chemicals and artificial stuff that certainly doesn’t help the problem any.

If you’re looking for a cloth diaper-safe diaper rash cream, or you just want an all-natural option, this is the recipe for you!

Ingredients:

Make It:

  1. In a medium glass bowl, melt together coconut oil, shea butter, and beeswax (approx. two minutes in microwave).
  2. Allow melted liquid to cool to room temperature, approx. one hour.
  3. Using a food processor, coffee grinder, or similar appliance, grind oats into a fine powder.
  4. After the liquid has cooled for an hour, transfer it, essential oils, and oats into a blender and puree.
  5. Pour into a pint wide-mouth jar.
  6. Allow to cool before use at room temperature or in the refrigerator (will set as it cools).

A little goes a long way, so use this in small amounts. Store in a cool, dark area, out of direct sunlight.

Cost Comparison:

  • This recipe = 50 cents per ounce
  • Boudreaux’s at Walmart = $2.17 per ounce
