I live in the Northwest, and winter is still in full swing here so I wasn't sure if there would be enough sunlight to test it out as a sunscreen. Then I saw that they have free ebooks full of recipes on their website! There were a lot of great ideas in the ebook, but the two that stuck out to me were the recipes for diaper rash cream and skin cream. Since we use cloth diapers, we can't use most diaper rash creams on the market since the ingredients will damage the fabric. So our only other options are to use disposable diapers while getting rid of the rash or pay a premium for cloth diaper safe cream. So was pretty excited to make my own!
I followed the recipe (which was super easy) and made some lavender rash cream. I poured some into a couple of empty chapstick tubes and then the rest of it I put into a little container to keep at our changing station. The tubes I'm stashing in the diaper bag just in case I need some when we are away from home.
Thankfully Miss Chunks doesn't currently have a diaper rash, but she did just have a horrible outbreak of eczema. When she was at her checkup the other day the doctor listed off some stuff to treat it...I just nodded and smiled and didn't really pay attention because I knew I was going to try this zinc oxide. I put some on her last night before bed and by this morning there was a huge difference! It was almost gone! The difference was so drastic that I wish I had gotten some "before" photos. After the second application the following morning it was pretty much gone. I'm sold. I'll definitely be using it to make sunscreen and one of these days I might just try making some mineral makeup with it!
