▪️Soft as a baby's bottoms... but let's keep it that way. dōTERRA oils are highly aware of the magic trio of frankincense.lavender.melaleuca or tea tree. These three are a happy medley of healing. Frankincense is anti-infectious and amazing for any wounds. Lavender is calming to the skin. Melaleuca is antibacterial and anti-fungal. The list goes on for these three oils and their benefits. They have brought my babes bottom some peace and ease after a rough diaper rash. ▪️I chose to use the pampers wipes that the hospital provided us with when Charlotte was born. Bad idea! She had a bum rash within her first two days of life and I already was left with the bad mom feeling. A baby wipe doesn't need all of those nasty ingredients to clean a bum, I learned my lesson. ▪️So a solution... a DIY diaper cream to apply when needed. I comprised it of good friend @morning.kisses recipe with some added love of oils, zinc oxide, cocoa & shea for added butter soft bum support. Make your own rules and make it suit your needs right? Check out the link for Dr. Axes list of benefits in using zinc oxide. I love it bc it keeps Charlotte's bum dry even with the softening buffed applied and is anti inflammatory. I bought it in bulk on Amazon. Now remember I am not one for exact measurements so I will list the ingredients and leave you to fine tune what is best for your babe.
▪️All organic: cocoa butter. shea butter. beeswax pellets. sunflower oil. zinc oxide. essential oils. I used 5 💧each. Use @morning.kisses directions, add your butters. Stir. Then add a few tablespoons of zinc oxide. Stir. It takes a bit to blend. Add oils after you take the mixture off the heat but before it all begins to harden. I love using tins and filling a number of them so I'm armed at all times (downstairs station , at the changing table, bedroom stand and diaper bag). ▪️And there you have it, a real easy recipe for a real big benefit NO DIAPER rash what so ever. Oh and Desitin? Please look up those ingredients. Yikes!
Here's to a better bottom that's so baby soft. Thanks @sharon_morningkisses !!! Xo Hay
