Ok…that Baby Balm is my very first homemade cosmetic…I made it for the first time….wooooo…almost 26 years ago…
Ingredients you will need:
Argan Oil: 2 tbsp
Sweet Almond Oil: 2 tbsp
Hazelnut Oil: 2 tbsp
Beeswax: 4 to 6 tsp (depending on the texture you want and how covering you want it, see photos below)
Honey: 1 tsp
Lavender Essential oil: 4 drops
Geranium essential oil (pelargoniumx asperum is more effective on fungus…but geranium bourbon is fine too): 4 drops
Zinc oxide powder (is a natural mineral ingredient which is a perfect skin healer and protector): 2 tsp.
Vitamine E: 5 drops
How to proceed:
Pour argan, hazelnut oil, almond oil, beeswax and honey in a bowl, heat it in a double pan heating (bain-marie), stir and allow the beeswax to melt. As soon as beeswax is liquid, take you bowl out of the pan and pour essential oils and vitamine E as well as the zinc oxide powder*, stir energetically to allow all the ingredients to mix, pour immediatly your mixture in a sterilized recycled jar (marmelade jars are perfect, prefer glass).
Once cooling, your balm will have a firm and creamy aspect (don’t use it warm!!!)
*zinc oxide is a powder, therefore be careful not to inhale it while the powder is free, a large amount of free powder in your lungs could be irritating, once introduced in the balm, it doesn’t present any risk of inhalation and has wonderful protecting and healing properties 🙂
If you use 6 tsp of beeswax, you balm will look like that:
If you use 4 tbsp of beeswax, your baby balm will have that look:
You can use on babies bottom to protect against rashes, lavender essential oil is a good skin healer and will kill germs on your baby skin…while balancing your baby’s skin flora.
All the ingredients are safe proved, natural and cruelty free 🙂
Main commercialized balms are full of chemicals, it is a nonsense…babies skin are absorbing chemicals through their skin twice as fast as an adult…some ingredients will stay…forever…will get accumulated
