Lavender Tamanu Baby Balm

This is great as a soothing balm for baby's bottom and works well with cloth diapers.

2 tablespoons tamanu oil
2 tablespoons jojoba oil
1 teaspoon grated {beeswax or beeswax beads}
1/2 teaspoon Vitamin E oil
1 teaspoon zinc oxide
6-12 drops lavender essential oil
Gently heat the tamanu and jojoba oils and the beeswax in a small bowl set over a pan of boiling water. When the wax has melted, remove from the heat. Let cool 5 minutes and then add Vitamin E oil, zinc oxide and essential oil. Pour into container and refrigerate to solidify.

Store in a dark, cool place.

This balm can be used as a protective moisture barrier for baby’s skin at each diaper change – especially when using cloth diapers. Or it can soothe irritated skin with disposable diapers.
