breast milk lotion.


This is my own recipe, i thought you guys might like it :-) photos to follow.



Oat, honey and breast milk lotion.

You will need-
3 tablespoons of oats (prefer organic)
150ml water
150ml breast milk (if you cant express 150ml just make up the fluid to 300ml with water)
2tsp Bees wax pellets
6tsp Emulsifying wax
2 tablespoons sweet almond oil OR vitamin e oil
12 drops of camomile oil
2 tsp vit' c powder (crushed supplement pills will be fine its just a preservative)
1tsp honey.
Two pans
Whisk
Measuring spoons
Clean jar/tub to store cream in with airtight lid.
Muslin Square.

Put oats into a pan with water; boil up until water starts to turn milky and thick. Turn heat off add milk then set oats to drain in a muslin. When cool enough to handle give the muslin a really good squish and mush to get all of the sticky liquid out- I found that using the back of a spoon to scrape the gloop from the outside of the muslin helped.
add vit c powder, Set oaty milky fluid to one side.

Melt in a clean pan 2 tsp of bees wax and 6tsp of emulsifying wax. When melted add the almond/vit’’ e oil and also add the camomile oil. This must be done on a really low heat.

While this is melting re heat the milky oaty gloop do not simmer or boil just warm through nicely.

Keep both pans on a warm heat and pour a very small amount of the liquid into the oil. Whisk as if your life depends on it. Keep doing this until you have no liquid left. Add the honey.
The honey makes the lumpy gooey mixture go really runny. KEEP whisking. When most of the lumps have gone and the mix is shiny and thick pour mix into your clean tub and allow to cool..

I found at some points during this the mixture went from smelling sweet to sickly to sweet, the end product is a sweet scent of honey, oats and almost newborn baby breath smell.

You will be left with a very thick cream that goes a long way, I found that I had some little lumps of bees wax left in mine but they melted at body temp and glided nicely onto my skin. The cream is non-greasy and super moisturising. Store in the fridge.

Thanks for sharing! How much (approx) would this recipe make and how long would it keep in the fridge?

Thanks!

that filled half of a plastic take away tub (think the white Chinese take away tubs) i imagine that it would be good for about 2 weeks if kept in the fridge. you could always put some in a weening tub to take out for the day for nappy rash but obviously use fresh cream each day.

SO far i have used this on a little rash on faiths bottom which cleared up over night, my own dry skin and dry lips. it really is super even though i do say so myself.

i really want to hear from people that try this out, i imagine it can be used for pretty much anything!
