For a natural, and affordable, option for sore nipples or itchy belly.
All ingredients are safe for both mother and baby.
Breast and Belly Balm:
In a cleaned and sanitized mason jar:
Pour coconut oil to 1/3 of the jar. Coconut oil has a low melting point, and while solid in the jar, will melt with the heat of your hands.
Pour 1/5 of the jar worth of jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is a great moisturizer for dry and sensitive skin due to it’s hypo-allergenic & anti-inflammatory benefits. Jojoba is safe for use on nipples, as it is non-toxic to babies.
Pour in 6-9 drops of lavender oil. Lavender is a calming scent and safe for use.
Pour in 3-6 drops of orange or sweet orange oil..
Pour in 1-3 drops of tea tree oil. This is largely optional as I personally prefer the smell of tea tree- I find it quite calming.
