Homemade Diaper Ointment

Your baby’s skin is very soft, sensitive, and delicate. Their sensitive skin can be prone to rashes from chemicals in soaps, lotions, or baby wipes. A very common rash that most babies will get is diaper rash. Using a diaper ointment can prevent or soothe the irritation caused from a rash. Choosing the best diaper ointment to stop the rash is very important because creams with harsh chemicals could make the rash worse and cause more discomfort to your baby. Natural baby products are the best to use on your baby because the ingredients are completely organic; they don’t have any chemicals or synthetic ingredients, and won’t harm your baby or their skin.

You can make your own natural ointment at home and control the ingredients you want to use. If you don’t have time to make your own ointment, you can always buy natural products that are guaranteed to be organic and chemical free. It can be a fun project to make homemade diaper rash cream, but if you don’t have the time or can’t find the ingredients you should always lean towards purchasing an organic baby product.

Most recipes from homemade diaper rash cream include some common ingredients such as almond oil, emu oil and kukui nut oil. Other ingredients you can use are: tea tree oil, water, jojoba oil, shea butter, avocado oil, or other types of oils depending on the recipe you want to follow. Making the ointment can be as easy as just combining the ingredients, while other recipes require that you heat the ingredients in a double boiler to combine. Some recipes are more time consuming and require that the ingredients sit in a sunny window for at least a week so that the ingredients can infuse together properly.

Using emu oil in homemade recipes is very common because of the healing powers the oil contains. It is used to cure anything from skin rashes to wrinkles to body pains. It is a moisturizing agent that is great for diaper rash and can be used for any type of dry skin. Emu oil is also used to treat acne, bruises, cuts, arthritis or other joint pain, scars, and wrinkles just to name a few.

Now that you know what is used in homemade ointments, you can look for these ingredients in natural products you want to buy for your baby if you don’t have the time or ingredients to make your own ointments. Buying natural products for you and your baby is the best alternative to making homemade remedies.
