Diaper Rash Cream Recipe {CD safe}

We buy and have bought California Baby's wonderful diaper cream. Even though it does not seem to harm our cloth diapers, and works IS a bit pricey to buy all the time.

Baby A is prone to diaper rash as she absolutely loves spicy food. Even when I was pregnant with Baby A I craved spicy food. Unfortunately, the spicy food and Baby A's bum do not get along. She ends up with a rash after the goes #2.

I decided to come up with a diaper cream (zinc oxide free) that would work for her little bum to keep it from getting bad rashes.

It has not caused problems with our diapers, we have everything from hemp to cotton to bamboo to microfiber. I will say though that I cannot guarantee whether it will or will not work with your cloth diapers. Please check with your cloth diaper manufacturer before use, and use at your own risk.

In addition, this diaper cream contains essential oils. Some babies may or may not do well with essential oils. Please talk to your health care provider before using essential oils on your baby's bum.

All that aside, here is a recipe that works fantastically for Baby A's diaper rash. It makes a pretty large batch!

Lolli's Coconut Lavender Diaper Cream 

What you will need:

8 oz cup
Lid for cup
Spoon or Stirring Stick
Coconut Oil
100% Pure Lavender Essential Oil
100% Pure Tea Tree Oil
100% Aloe Vera Gel ( not juice)

How to make it:

1. Put 6 oz. of semi solid coconut oil into container
*if it is easier you could also lightly melt the coconut oil to mix, then resolidify, but doing it this way is just quicker and easier for me.
2. Add in 2 oz of aloe vera gel
3. Add in 2-3 drops of lavender and 2-3 drops of tea tree. Adjust essential oils for child's sensitivity. As little as 1 drop will work for some kids. Omit and just use coconut aloe mixture if your child is really sensitive.
4. Mix all ingredients together thoroughly!! 

5. Place lid on container
6. Keep in a room that is approx. 70, more than that it will melt and cooler tham 65 it will become completely solid. I keep it in Baby A's room and it is just fine.

I hope this recipe helps your child as much as it has helped mine!
