This is just a quick post about the diaper salve I make for Ellie. It works great, is all natural and is anti bacterial, viral and fungal. Yes it kills fungus. Thank you tea tree oil! And as an added bonus, you can use it with cloth diapers!

1/2 cup Plantain infused olive oil
1/4c Nettle infused olive oil
1/4 Callendula infused olive oil (You can also use chamomile in a pinch)
1 oz of bees wax.

Melt together on low heat with the double boiler method. The bees wax melts faster and more evenly if you grate it on the cheese grater first. The flakes melt nice and evenly. Remove from heat.


20 drops tea tree (Melaleuca) Essential oil,
20 drops Lavender Essential oil
10 drops Callendula Essential oil.

Pour in container and let solidify. If you want it a little creamyer add 1/2 cup coconut oil, 1/2 oz bees wax instead.

Apply liberally to baby’s bum as needed for rash. Enjoy!

    I have one of those litlte bitty crockpots that are supposed to be for hot dips and such. I’ve never used it for that, but it’s great for simmering herbs and oils together to make salves! I don’t know that I’d go out & buy one for this (ours came with our big crockpot), but if you see one cheap at a thrift store, it might be worth grabbing.

      Good to know! Do you find that your oil over heats in the small crock pot? I wonder if mine is just too hot but my oils always seem to get too hot and cook the herbs.

    Just a question about this butt balm recipe. I understand that I add 1/2 coconut oil for a creamier balm, but do I ADD an extra 1/2 oz beeswax to this? OR do I reduce the 1 oz to just 1/2 oz. Thanks!
