For anyone with a baby in diapers, you know there are times that no matter how often you change the diaper rash happens. Instead of buying a diaper rash ointment from the store that may have things in it you would prefer not to put on your baby, try this natural homemade diaper rash salve. It has all natural ingredients and you can make some up when ever you need it.
Even if you don’t have a baby, a few tins of this natural salve would make a great baby shower or new baby gift. Not only is this a great diaper rash salve but the mixture of herbs makes it a great salve for other rashes or skin irritations. It has both Calendula and comfrey which are great healers and the it has chickweed, barberry and marshmallow which are antimicrobial and very soothing. Beeswax is added to make it into a non drip salve and it also helps to waterproof the area. This recipe is from Grow Forage Cook Ferment.
I love making herbal remedies instead of buying expensive ones from the store, and since I used some of the white diaper rash ointment before I knew how to make herbal salves at home I know that what I used from the store didn’t work as well as some of the homemade ointments and salves.
