Make Homemade Calamine Lotion

Calamine lotion can be used to treat anything from nasty sunburn to poison ivy to itchy bug bites. It’s incredibly useful for anyone but particularly those who like to explore the outdoors, or kids that like to bushwhack through whatever they can. Anyway you spin it, a little jar of calamine can be a life-saver. While store-bought calamine lotion doesn’t have the poor chemical ratings of other over-the-counter lotions, replicating it at home costs a fraction of the price once you’ve gotten the ingredients. Plus, regardless of whether or not the ingredients are extremely bad, there’s something to be said for the peace of mind and wholesome feeling you get from making something from scratch.

Don’t be intimidated by the ingredients-they’re much easier to get than you might think!

Ingredients: Bentonite clay, baking soda, sea salt, essential oils, glycerin (optional), pink kaolin clay (optional).
