Recipe for butt rash cream?

I use essential oils for everything and have a huge stash of them. Was wondering if any of you ladies have any success with making your own diaper rash cream with them? Something that is really going to work good.

You may want to change her diaper brand unless you know what's causing it.

You need Shea butter, a carrier oil- I recommend jojoba oil. (Coconut oil won't work for this unless it's fractionated.) And lavender eo

Melt the Shea butter in a pot of warm water on the stove on low. If you heat it too high it will be grainy, it has to heat slowly. Remove from heat after melted.

Fill the jar you're going to use about half with carrier oil and a drop or two of lavender oil (no more because babe is so young, later you can add chamomile oil). When the Shea butter is melted but cool to the touch, fill the rest of the jar. Refrigerate overnight then keep at room temp.

I'm not sure what is causing it and right now we are using diapers and wipes from Honest Company.

Thank you for the recipe, it's sounds great!

Do you make your own baby wash?

Yup! At this age it's pure water. Sometime I'll add a little sea salt and baking soda. But for quite a while all baby needs is water.
