Then our 6th baby came along as fair as Snow White 😳 and so I felt it was time to finally get on making it homemade. I used a recipe that a friend shared on Facebook from Dr. Axe (love what he does! Make sure you are following him here!) and then added a little bees wax to make it more water proof and bergamot essential oil because I love the smell and it’s calming and good for your skin!
