When making a diaper rash cream for your baby, you’ll want to include skin-soothing ingredients that are gentle, nourishing, and effective at protecting delicate baby skin. Here are some essential ingredients to consider:

Shea butter is a natural fat derived from the shea tree. It’s rich in vitamins and fatty acids, making it incredibly moisturizing and soothing for irritated skin.
Lavander Essential Oils
The lavender essential oil has calming and soothing effects on the skin. It also possesses antimicrobial properties, making it an ideal addition to your magic diaper rash cream.
Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe vera gel is naturally anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and antibacterial, so it is ideal for treating diaper rash. It is also full of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes that are beneficial for skin health and healing.
Assembling the Magical Mixture
Here are the step-by-step process of creating this magic diaper rash cream:
Step 1: Melt the Ingredients
In a double boiler, 1 tablespoon of shea butter. It would also help to add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of beeswax. Stir gently until they blend.
Step 2: Add Zinc Oxide and Aloe Vera Gel
Once the mixture is fully melted, remove it from the heat source and allow it to cool slightly. Then, add 2 tablespoons of zinc oxide and 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel. Stir the mixture until it becomes a smooth, creamy consistency.
Step 3: Infuse with Lavender Essential Oil
Next, add 5-7 drops of lavender essential oil to the mixture. Lavender oil will not only provide a pleasant fragrance but also promote healing and relaxation. Allow the mixture to cool and solidify. You can transfer it to a clean, airtight container for storage.
Step 4: Test the Mixture Before Applying
Once the mixture solidifies, test a small amount of the diaper rash cream on the inside of your baby’s arm or leg to make sure it won’t cause an allergic reaction. Remember, before applying the new diaper rash cream, it’s essential to test the mixture on a small patch of skin, as sometimes wipes cause diaper rash in sensitive babies too!
