How to make breast milk bum balm for baby
100ml breast milk
100ml grapeseed or coconut oil
1 tbsp grated beeswax
Few drops of vitamin E oil
6-8 drops of lavender essential oil (optional)
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 breast milk 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 Breast milk Bum Balm can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three months.
