Homemade Baby Diaper Cream

A natural and simple diaper cream. It is antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, and soothing. Together it is a powerhouse for defeating yeast infections as well. Use it directly on their bottom. The added bonus is it washes out of any clothing beautifully.
Makes: makes 1 cup

1/8 c coconut oil
1/4 c shea butter
3-4 tsp cornstarch ( to thicken and absorb moisture)

1. Combine coconut oil and shea butter in a small high sided bowl with a hand mixer. Add cornstarch a tsp at a time until you achieve the desired thickness.
2. It will look similar to a whipped icing.That’s when you know it is done! Transfer to a small covered container and place at your changing station. Keep a small portion in the diaper bag as well.
3. Apply liberally with each diaper change as a preventative and rash salve. Makes about 1 cup.
