My boys can get painful-looking rash on their to bottom. So I made this bum cream that soothes and heals those nasty rashes.
1. Coconut Oil
2. Shea Butter
3. Tea Tree YoungLiving Essential Oil
4. Lavender YoungLiving Essential Oil
5. Frankincense YoungLiving Essential Oil
6. Gentle Baby YoungLiving Essential Oil Blend
I whipped coconut oil and shea butter using the electric mixer until it's nice and creamy and then added the essential oils. The amount of essential oils you use will depend on the age of your child.
Tea Tree essential oil is known for its antibacterial, anti-fungal, antiseptic and has strong immune building properties. Lavender essential oil is known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. Frankincense essential oil is just awesome for the skin. Gentle Baby essential oil blend has Geranium, Palmarosa and Rosewood (plus other awesome oils)- all of which are great for skin, moisturizes and promotes skin regeneration. I'm quite picky about the essential oils I use for my boys.. especially coz I am putting it on their skin - I've only really used YoungLiving oils on them and it has been great!
To be honest, I'm not really the extreme "all-natural" momma. But when the boys were born, so many things were "not safe" for infants.. that's really when I started exploring essential oils and started making our own creams and rollerballs to help with rash, coughs&cold and just to boost their immune system. And honestly, we've been loving it!
