Diaper Balm Recipe - BABB

  • 2 ounces aloe vera butter {or just regular coconut oil if you can't find aloe butter}
  • .5 ounces beeswax
  • .5 ounces zinc oxide
  • .25 ounces anhydrous lanolin USP
  • .15 ounces emu oil
  • 8 drops Peru Balsam EO
  • 6 drops German Chamomile EO
  • 1 drop Helichrysum EO

Step 1
In a small bowl mix zinc oxide, emu oil and one ounce of aloe vera butter into a smooth slushy paste. Put aside. {Wear a mask or cover your nose and mouth when handling the zinc oxide}.

Step 2
In a clean pyrex measuring cup {or double boiler} melt the remaining aloe vera butter, and bees wax together slowly over low heat, stop to stir occasionally for even distribution of heat as throughout. Add lanolin to the hot mixture stir until completely smooth. {A mini crock pot also works well}.

Step 3
Take the zinc oxide paste from step one and stir into the hot aloe vera butter/beeswax/lanolin mixture. If mixture is too cool it may separate a bit - just add a bit more heat and keep stirring.

Step 4
Lastly, add your essential oils, if desired, and pour while warm into a clean container. Let set and cover when cool.
