Homemade Calamine Lotion
Write a review
  1. 1/4 cup of fresh water (roughly)
  2. -4 teaspoons bentonite clay
  3. -4 teaspoons baking soda
  4. -1/2-1 tablespoon of sea salt
  5. -10-15 drops of tea tree or another essential oil, such as lavender or chamomile, or a combination
  6. -1/2 teaspoon glycerin (optional)
  7. -2-3 teaspoons pink kaolin clay (optional)
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the baking soda, salt, bentonite clay, and the kaolin clay if you’re using it.
  2. Add water, stirring constantly, until a paste starts to form. Continue to add water until desired consistency is reached-I usually use around a quarter cup, but it will depend on whether or not you include the pink kaolin clay.
  3. Add in your essential oils at this point, and the glycerin if you’re using it. Stir until thoroughly blended, and store in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid.
  4. You can keep this in the refrigerator for up to a week, but an easier way is to simply keep a jar of the dry ingredients blended together on hand. Then, when you need it, take a small spoonful of the powder and just add enough of the liquids to make your lotion as needed.
