Are you looking for a natural diaper rash cream that is made with natural ingredients? Don’t buy a random rash ointment from a store that’s full of synthetic fragrances. The best way to find a good rash treatment is to use a natural diaper cream! Using this as a preventative measure can be a good way to prevent severe diaper rash while providing a protective barrier, too.
Continuing on with my love of Essentials Oils and natural products – I’d like to share my Diaper Cream Recipe with you! This recipe is great to treat AND prevent diaper rash. But, it’s not just for babies! It can even be used as a healing salve for other things – burns, dry skin, and more.
The good news is that it’s super easy to make and works as a moisture barrier and is great for skin irritation.

How to help with diaper rashes
The great thing about this recipe is that it’s SAFE for cloth diapers! Yep! I’ve turned to the fluff side and started cloth diapering my 15 month old and it’s going great! We started with Bum Genius Elementals and 4.0’s. I’m really, really liking the Elementals and plan to buy more! Cotton Babies has an amazing sale on them right now! Buy 4 get 2 FREE! I’ll give you my full review on cloth diapers and flannel wipes soon – today let’s focus on this awesome cream!
I love coconut oil – we use it for all kinds of things – as a face and body moisturizer, in our food, to dilute our essentials oils or to help them spread easily and more. So, I started with a base of coconut oil since I knew it was good for cloth diapers and skin, added in some local bees wax and essential oils to help prevent and calm baby’s delicate skin – that’s it! I LOVE products that I know what’s in them and only have a few ingredients! YAY!
I’d be happy to help you get started with oils and answer any questions you have! Just message me!
Ok – now that you know that you can’t just put any oil on your family – let’s move on to the good stuff!

How to make the Best natural diaper cream
When melted. Remove the bowl from the pan and place on the counter to cool.
When the oils is warm to the touch – add in your essential oils. Mix together.
Pour into a glass jar and let cool and harden completely. It will be harder in cooler temps and will soften in warmer temps in your home. Make sure to clean your bowls and spoons before it hardens to make cleanup easier. I use a paper towel to wipe out before washing.
That’s it! Use on your hands, baby’s bottom and skin and even your lips! We love this stuff!
This is perfect for homemade diaper cream and it is gentle on your baby’s skin! I prefer to use this over other conventional diaper rashes just because I love how it lasts a long time. A little bit goes a long way, too!
You can use this for preventing diaper rash to try to stop it from happening in the first place. It’s my favorite diaper ointment to use because it doesn’t use any toxic chemicals. Using soothing ingredients that can be used with a new diaper is a mom win! I hate using anything with harmful chemicals in it!
