Homemade Baby Products Using Essential Oils

Making your own homemade baby products using natural ingredients like essential oils sure beats buying them at the store. Homemade baby care products will save you money and you won’t have to wonder what the heck those ingredients are on those labels.

Here are my favorite homemade baby products to make at home using essential oils and other all natural ingredients:

Homemade Diaper Balm

  2. Coconut Oil
  3. Optional – Beeswax (for thickness and to prevent melting during
  • Ratio: 1 tablespoon coconut oil for every 2-4 drops of lavender


Mix the ingredients together for your very own DIY diaper balm and keep it handy in a container or mason jar.

  1. 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
  2. 2 teaspoons Beeswax
  3. 30-60 drops of Essential Oils (less for children)
  4. A 4 ounce Mason Jar
  • Some great choices for essential oils include any or all of the following (check out our post about essential oils for children to learn which oils are safest):
  1. Thieves
  2. Eucalyptus
  3. Peppermint
  4. Lavender
  5. Tea Tree
  6. Lemon
  7. Copaiba
  8. Rosemary

I used a combination of all of the above oils, with mostly eucalyptus, peppermint and tea tree.


  1. Melt coconut oil and beeswax together in a mason jar. You can melt it in the microwave or by placing the mason jar in a hot pot of water. Stir.
  2. Add the essential oils, stir and store in a mason jar or container.
  3. Use a dab as needed rubbed onto the chest, neck, back or bottoms of the feet. I also like to rub a little bit on the upper lip.
