  1. I make almost the same thing, but I use a half cup of coconut oil and then I add in about 1tbps of beeswax. Adding beeswax gives it a higher melting point, a good thing for living in Florida.

  2. FYI – coconut oil will be in a liquified state at tempertures above 75/76 degrees so if you want it to stay solid you will have to keep it in the fridge. Don’t worry about it being cold on the babies bottom as it will warm up as soon as you put some in your hand to apply.

  3. Can the fractionated coconut oil be used? And if so, what do I need to do differently if anything?

  4. Can I use something other than coconut oil? My husband is very allergic to coconut so he wouldn’t be able to apply or be around the baby.

  5. Marlene – I don’t think that fractionated coconut oil will work because it stays in a liquid state. It will not solidify.

  6. Just an FYI to all who are new to oils and using coconut oil. DO NOT USE REFINED COCONUT OIL in this recipe. I had no idea what I was doing and had no idea how or what to buy regarding coconut oil. I bought refined (or expeller pressed) coconut oil and thought that maybe once I melted it and added the oils that it would stop being rock hard and turn into an actual cream. I was wrong. This post needs to be more clear and specific on what type of coconut oil to be used. Please learn from my mistake!
