I am looking for someone that might know how to make baby lotions, shampoos, diaper cream and/or pregnancy belly butter? Any recipes or directions will be greatly appreciated.

1/2 lb powdered comomile, calendula(pot marigold) or elderflowers
Combine thoroughly in large bowl with spoon. Store sealed in ziplock, box, tin, plastic tub or shaker container. Very faint delicate scent. A soothing all purpose powder
Try googling homemade baby care product recipes
Note: the baby in the picture is completely hand-sculpted from marzipan, cool huh?
Plain cornstarch makes the best dusting powder or baby powder. Just use it straight out of the box. Cornstarch makes a smoothing bath for adults. It might make the tub water softer too. Stay away from anything with perfumes.
