Make your own homemade Nappy - Diaper rash ointment

Soothe sore patches on your baby’s skin with this herbal remedy.

To make 20 applications

  • 1 tablespoon dried chickweed
  • 1 tablespoon dried marsh mallow root
  • 1 tablespoon dried comfrey root
  • 1/8 teaspoon goldenseal powder
  • 8 floz/225ml sweet almond oil
  • 2 oz/60g beeswax

Combine all the ingredients except the beeswax in a medium-size saucepan. Cook over moderately low heat until soft — 5-10 minutes. Add the beeswax and stir over the heat until the beeswax melts completely. Then strain through cheesecloth into a small glass jar. Seal tightly and refrigerate until solid. Apply each time you change the baby’s nappy. It will keep for 2 months in a cool place.

Caution If the rash doesn’t disappear after 3-4 applications, consult your doctor as to whether or not to continue the treatment.
