Homemade Diaper Cream
A lot of natural baby products can break the bank, but the good news is that you can create your own for a fraction of the price! This homemade diaper cream is so luxurious and doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals. Whip some up to pamper your baby or give as a gift.
- Coconut oil
- Small jar
- Vitamin E capsules
- Lavender essential oil (optional)
Step One: Measure out about ½ cup of coconut oil. Whip the oil in an electric mixer for about 8 minutes. This will create a creamy texture.
Step Two: Stir about 2 tablespoons of cornstarch into the whipped coconut oil. The cornstarch will help thicken up the mixture.
Step Three: Poke a hole in two vitamin E capsules and squeeze the vitamin E into the coconut oil mixture.
Step Four: If desired, add a few drops of high quality lavender essential oil.
Step Five: Spoon the mixture into a small mason jar to store. If the mixture is too thin, chill it in the refrigerator for a few hours to firm it back up. Add a pretty bow and a label for a great gift idea!
