Ok, my very first post on this board although I made some cold and hot processed soap (and of course some melt and pour as well), a massage bar and some massage oil blends, a few face scrubs and some other stuff by now. But I haven't posted any yet so I'll try to get better in the future - if anybody would like my stuff at all...


So, this is the second diaper cream I made, it's my original recipe. It's made of 100% virgin, cold processed olive oil, natural bee-wax and calendula petals. Than I added different EO to parts of the mix so I have some different smelling creams: lavendel and bergamot worked really nice (not together of course). This time I also added honey and propolis for added nutrition. Everything is oragnic (oil, wax, flowers, eo, honey,...) and the ingredients are really quality and I think it really makes a difference from the store bought stuff: my dd has no problem with her little bottom thogh she is in kindergarden now where she has to wear diapers (at home we do EC) - but I put this cream on her in the morning and she's fine). Even my picky mom liked it Grin.


So the different smells are for different uses and people: I made the cream in the first nice container for my mom as a hand cream, a big pot that you can't quite see well (because it's ugly but very practical - plastic doesn't get broken when kids throw it around) is for my dd - as diaper cream and the ones in the middle are for friends.

How do you like it?

Wow, this looks really nice.  I'll bet it feels great!  Not that I'm, you know, combating diaper rash.  Or anything.  Man, this compliment has gotten awkward.   Embarrassed  You know what I mean!

I would absolutely love to see more of your stuff!  Face scrubs and massage bars especially!  I haven't tried making those yet, but am dying to give them a try.

I know what you mean, don't worry Wink. Calendula cream is good for anykind of damaged skin not just as a diaper cream - I just use it so because I have a baby Smiley. But it's originally a hand and face cream.

Ok, I'll photo next stuff I make and post it. I like to make this stuff because you can package it so nicely and it makes a nice themed gift. (I made a scrub, a few different soaps, bath salt, massage oil,... with one theme and coordinated smells and packageing and it looks pretty).
Haven't played with lye since I have my dd is here under my feet, though... (no explanation needed Wink)
