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.
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.
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.
Apply liberally with each diaper change as a preventative and rash salve. Makes about 1 cup.
