How to make breastmilk bum balm for baby

Ingredients

100ml breastmilk
100ml grapeseed or coconut oil
1 tbsp grated beeswax
Few drops of vitamin E oil
6-8 drops of lavender essential oil (optional)

Method

STEP ONE: Heat the grapeseed or coconut oil with the beeswax in the microwave on low until just melted, about two to three minutes.

STEP TWO: Add the vitamin E oil to the mix.

STEP THREE: Pour the breastmilk into the mixture while whisking. The mixture will get thicker as you whisk.

STEP FOUR: Let the mixture cool before using. It will keep getting thicker as it cools, so if you want to store it in a jar, pour it in while it’s still warm.

The Breastmilk Bum Balm can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three months.
