BreastMilk Lotion Recipe – Homemade Baby Lotion With Breast Milk

If you want to utilize your extra milk supply for the benefit of your little one, look no further than our breast milk lotion recipe that protects your baby from rashes and other skin infections.

What Is in Breastmilk?

Your newborn baby is fed by a miraculous liquid called breast milk. Despite having a rather uninteresting white and thin appearance, it is stuffed with nutrients and antibodies as follows:

Proteins: Whey and casein, two proteins that help with digestion, are found in breast milk. Whey protein makes up roughly 60–80% of the total protein in human milk.

Fats: Fatty acids are essential for the growth of the nervous system, retina, and brain.

Vitamins: A developing baby needs a variety of vitamins, which are abundant in breast milk. Remember that the vitamin content fluctuates depending on how much the mother intakes vitamins. More vitamins will be found in the mother’s breast milk if she consumes more vitamins and vice versa.

Carbohydrates: Lactose, which makes up 40% of the total calories in breast milk, is the main source of carbohydrates. Lactose stops harmful bacteria from growing in the stomach.

Is Breastmilk Good for Your Skin?

Breast milk might be beneficial for your skin because it contains nutrients. It can provide hydration to dry skin as well as treat mild skin irritations. Breast milk lotion is regarded as a wonder product that may be utilized by the entire family.

Breast milk is wonderful for your skin itself, but breast milk lotion’s additional ingredients, such as grapeseed oil and beeswax, make it even better.

Breast milk lotion has the advantage of being more manageable than breast milk itself. Breast milk is thin and can be difficult to apply, yet it offers properties that can improve the condition of your skin. Making the breast milk thicker will make it easy to use on the skin.

BreastMilk Lotion Recipe


  • 1 tbsp Beeswax
  • 3 – 3 ½ oz Grapeseed Oil
  • A few drops of Vitamin E Oil
  • 3 – 3 ½ oz Breast Milk
  • A few drops of Scented Essential Oil (optional)


  • Put the beeswax and grapeseed oil in a bowl that can be placed in the microwave safely.
  • Heat the Beeswax and grapeseed oil in the microwave on low until the wax is just melted.
  • Pour the vitamin E oil into the melted wax.
  • Pour your breast milk slowly into the oil and beeswax mixture, stirring quickly as you do so.
  • Allow it to cool down. The mixture will continue to thicken as it cools.

Remember to keep your breast milk lotion in a cool, dry location. Keep in mind that beeswax is combustible. For this reason, it will discolor if kept in a brightly illuminated environment. Finally, avoid freezing your breast milk lotion because it could vary in consistency and texture after defrosting (though it should be safe for fridge storage). 

Does Breastmilk Lotion Have a Short Shelf Life?

Because of the composition of breast milk, breast milk lotion quickly goes bad if not refrigerated. If kept in the refrigerator, it can last up to three months. However, the texture of the breast milk lotion will be ruined if it is kept in the freezer.

Other Uses of Breast Milk

Breast milk’s unique composition makes it useful for a variety of purposes. Here are a few:

  • Breast milk can be used to treat ear and eye infections, such as conjunctivitis.
  • Breast milk can be applied to small burns, cuts, or scrapes. It can facilitate wound healing and stop infections from spreading.
