Breastmilk Lotion Bars
I found this breastmilk lotion recipe in the Milky Mammas Facebook group and since I had all of the ingredients, I had to give it a try! Rory had a few patches of dry skin here and there and this lotion really cleared it up! I now use it on him after baths and I love the way his skin feels...I mean, on top of the already amazing feel of baby skin.
- Melt coconut oil and beeswax (I use a metal bowl and do a double boiler type thing)
- Add in vitamin e oil
- Slowly pour in breastmilk and whisk aggressively. This is important. Pour a little at a time and really whisk it in
- Pour into a silicone mold and let firm up in the freezer. After firm, store in a container in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
- To use, pull a bar out and warm in your hands. The warmth will melt a little bit of it and then you can apply where desired. You can also take a bar and rub directly onto skin. The heat from your skin will melt a little bit of the bar.
The recipe originally said to pour it into a container, which I did. However, because half of the recipe is coconut oil, it was so rock hard in the refrigerator I couldn't get any out unless I dug a spoon in. This is a great use for milk that you don't want to dump out! Save it for some lotion bars. :)
