Diaper Rash Salve


  • 1 tbsp chamomile
  • 1 tbsp calendula flowers
  • 1 tbsp lavender
  • 3.5 oz (7 tbsp.) olive oil
  • 1 tbsp beeswax


  • Combine the herbs and olive oil in a small glass jar.
  • Place this jar in a small saucepan filled with water (halfway up the jar or so). Turn it on medium-high heat.
  • When the water is beginning to simmer, remove the jar from the pan and set it aside. Allow it to steep for 1 - 2 hours.
  • Strain the now-infused oil through a piece of cloth, squeezing to get all the oil out. Discard the herbs.
  • Pour the oil into a small saucepan and add the beeswax. Heat pan over medium heat until the beeswax is melted.
  • Pour the finished salve into a 4-oz. jar or 2 2-oz. tins.
  • Allow to cool completely before putting a lid on and putting it away.
