Janice Cox, author of Natural Beauty from the Garden shared this recipe with StorkNet during her guest interview with us:
Diaper Rash Cream:
- 2 tablespoons soy lecithin
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon apricot kernel oil
- teaspoon vitamin E oil
- cup distilled water
Mix together the lecithin, coconut oil, apricot kernel oil, and vitamin E oil. Heat this mixture gently until the coconut oil is liquefied. Gently heat the water until it is roughly the same temperature as the oil mixture. Pour the lecithin mixture into a blender and start stirring. Slowly add the warm water and blend on high until the mixture is thick and creamy. Pour the cream into a clean container and allow it to cool completely, stirring occasionally.
To use: apply a small amount on to your baby's clean bottom before diapering.
