After bath we like to take a few precious baby massage moments with a small amount of salve. We use a clean swab or finger to scoop out a small amount, warm between hands and massage into skin allowing a few minutes for absorption. As a diaper cream we use it in the same way we would any diaper cream. In addition to using as a diaper cream, we avoid overbathing and maintain baby skin health naturally by using a small amount of salve to wipe down areas that tend to collect debris and get irritated. Fat little necks, behind ears and knees, and various rolls and folds can be kept healthy and fresh with an occasional application of a thin layer of Baby Salve. Simply swipe the area with some salve on a clean finger and gently wipe out any excess, leaving a light layer for protection.
