Homemade Breast and Belly Balm

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.┬áJojoba 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.
