I am in love with this easy diy organic diaper cream! It is so easy to whip together and I know EXACTLY what I'm putting on my little one. It works great for creases behind ears, and other dry spots as well!

As a mom of three kids three and under, you can imagine that we pour through diaper creams, lotions and ointment! My middle child particularly seems to use up a ton of these things. She has eczema and is prone to yeast infections and I guess what I am getting at is that we have tried every ointment under the sun and none has been that effective for her.. only constant vigilance. I finally decided to try an organic DIY variation to test whether or not any of the chemicals, scents etc. that they use in store bought varieties were worsening her condition.

Although it can be a little bit of an investment up front if you don’t have all the ingredients, once you have them you will be able to make several batches of this recipe! Also, it works great for other super dry places like behind the ears etc!

    I’ve heard essential oils should not be used with babies. Any concerns with the lavender use?

      Jessica

      I’ve used them with all my babies, but I am definitely not an expert! I would maybe test it out on the bottom of their foot or something if you were worried about a bad reaction! In the diaper cream the other ingredients should help the be a barrier as well so it won’t be as strong as applying oil directly to the skin, if that makes sense!

    Can you use corn starch instead of arrow root

      Sarah + Jessica

      It may not be organic anymore depending on the corn starch but I think it should work the same! I’ve never tried it so be sure to keep us posted if you do!

    This looks great! Can I keep this on the shelf? For how long? Thanks
