Those poor baby bottoms suffer quite a bit! Think about it: all that booty movement, chaffing, not to mention wearing relentless un-breathing diapers that make air circulation on sensitive parts a joke!

Enter in the life-changing diaper rash creme! This stuff is miraculous in that it can gently sooth angry red skin while healing it in the long run.

You can easily find the stuff at any pharmacy or supermarket, but the organic brands tend to cost a pretty penny. So why not make our own natural (and organic) baby butt paste?

In this instructable and with only a few ingredients, your baby and your purse will all have healthier bottoms!

Let's get started!

Step 1: Ingredients

For this creme, you will need:

3/4 cup coconut oil

Chamomile flower or chamomile tea bag (I couldn't find the flowers anywhere, so I just used 100% chamomile tea bags with no added caffeine. Same deal)

~.5 oz beeswax (I couldn't find beeswax anywhere, until I realized that some stores carry 100% beeswax candles, so I just used this minus the wick)

12 drops of lavender essential oil (you can also use tea tree oil)

Optional:

Arrowroot powder to thicken the consistency of the creme

Squeeze bottle for easy application
