Ever since I’ve been hooked onto essential oils and how easy it is to DIY a lot of everyday items, I tend to try to DIY some everyday stuff, especially when it comes to skincare and chemical-free care for the kids. So, just before #littleNugget was born, I made a small batch of nappy rash cream. I love whipped cream as it feels lighter and not as oily compared to thick ones with lots of cocoa butter or shea butter. Anyway, here is the simple recipe for it (which I am putting here so I can refer to as well. Smart eh? lol).

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup organic coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup solid shea butter (not lotion/liquid type)
  • 8-10 drops of Lavender or Gentle Baby Young Living Essential Oil

Directions

  1. Heat some water in a double boiler over the stove. (You can also use a smaller pot in a larger pot, or use a chocolate melting pot over another larger pot as I did here). Make sure that the water level of the lower pot is not too high or else water will get into the oils and spoil it. Just add enough water to touch the bottom of the top pot.
  2. Add the coconut oil and Shea butter in the top pot and melt until everything turns to liquid. The reason for using this method is to avoid burning the oils.
  3. Pour into a glass bowl and refrigerate to cool until it sets, not harden. (or if  you’re lazy, just use the pot. Just make sure you don’t melt the fridge shelves). This could take around 30-45 minutes.
  4. Remove from fridge and stir in essential oils.
  5. Use an electric mixer and whip it until stiff peaks form. It could take around 10 minutes or more, depending on how powerful your mixer is.
  6. Gently transfer into glass or aluminium containers. If you find it hard to scoop them into the jars without making a mess, you can just scoop the cream into a piping bag and pipe them into the jars.
  7. Store in room temperature to avoid melting or solidifying.

 
Makes approximately 5-6 20g sized glass cream jars. 

Note: You can use this same recipe to make whipped body butter for yourself with other essential oils such as Ylang Ylang, Rose, Frankincense or Jasmine. I used Lavender and/or Gentle Baby for babies because these 2 are the mildest and generally safe for babies.
