This cream is designed to place a gentle barrier between baby's hiny and the moisture in a diaper. Even though it's great for those tiny hiny's, it's also a wonderful barrier cream for the skin anywhere on any body. It also has a light golden color due to the calendula CO2.
- Combine olive oil, emulsifying wax and stearic acid in a heat proof (I use Pyrex) 16 oz. glass measuring cup. Place the mixture in a hot water bath until the waxes are completely melted. Remove from heat.
- In a separate Pyrex cup, combine the hydrosols, water, xanthan gum and borax. Place the mixture in a hot water bath until for about 10 minutes to warm the mix and dissolve the borax. (The borax will not dissolve completely until you stir it in; see next step.) Remove from heat.
- Stir the oils/waxes together to make sure they are evenly combined.
- In the separate container, stir the water ingredients to make sure they are evenly combined.
- Add the calendula CO2 last to the oil/wax mixture and stir to combine well. (Of course, you may add a preservative of your choice if desired.)
- Begin stirring the oil/wax mixture with an electric mixer and add the water mixture as you stir. You will see Tiny Hiny Cream begin to thicken as you blend it. Continue mixing until Tiny Hiny Cream is thick and rich. Pour into clean jars and allow to cool a bit before capping.
- To use, massage a generous amount into baby's (very) clean skin after a diaper change. For best results, as usual, be sure to use a pop sickle stick or other utensil to dispense this cream to avoid dipping contaminated fingers into the jar of cream. Store in the fridge between uses if you'd like to extend freshness, or add the appropriate amount of preservative of your choice.
