Heal your baby’s skin with @milkymakers DIY Breastmilk lotion🧴
Breastmilk lotion is very easy to make at home and has so many benefits for you and your baby.
We know what you are thinking mama…”Isn’t it strange to apply breastmilk to my baby’s skin?” 💭
You are not alone!
However, did you know that this miracle liquid 🪄can be more helpful than you realize? Breastmilk lotion is packed with antibodies, nutrients, proteins, fats, vitamins, carbohydrates etc.
So have you changed your mind yet? Making your own breastmilk not only has the benefits of all the healthy and natural ingredients that it contains, but also that you produce it naturally from your own body, and you know what you are putting in your lotion.
It is real magic! Breastmilk lotion helps with the following:
🦟. Insect bites
🚼. Diaper rash
🌬️. Dry skin
☀️. Sunburns and so much more!
You only need these additional ingredients:
🔹 90 ml of grape seed oil or natural coconut oil
🔹1 tbsp of beeswax
🔹3/4 drops of vitamin E oil
🔹90 ml fresh or thawed breastmilk
🔹3/4 drops of any essential oil you like (for scent)
Here is how to make a lotion out of breastmilk: ⬇️⬇️⬇️
1️⃣. Heat the oil and beeswax together until the beeswax is barely melted.
2️⃣. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl (minus the breastmilk).
3️⃣. Make sure to mix it at a low to medium temperature for at least 2-3 minutes.
4️⃣. Slowly pour in the breastmilk and whisk the mixture causing it to thicken.
5️⃣. Once your mixture is done, place it in a sealed container (glass container, jar or empty lotion tub).
6️⃣. Allow the mixture to cool and thicken before using it.
7️⃣. Store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
And just like that, you are done!! 🙋🏼♀️✅
