Sometimes when you have a milk cow or goat, they get chapped teats or even some sore spots. It is not fun for the animal or the human. I have found the BEST homemade udder balm EVER! I really am that excited about it.
I’ve used this udder balm recipe to help relieve udder swelling, symptoms of mastitis, injured teats, and chapped teats. I have friends that love this stuff and always like to have it on hand during calving season.
My friend Tonya had a cow with severe edema and this udder balm reduced it by 80% overnight. This stuff is legit!
Homemade Udder Balm
Homemade udder balm is easy to make, smells great, and it works. This udder balm has been amazing to use. I am so glad that this recipe has worked so well. I just whip up a batch when I run out. I use it all winter long to prevent my goat’s teats and my hands from getting chapped. I really like the consistency of it too.
I also use it during the summer to help keep a healthy udder. A dairy animal with a healthy udder is a happy and productive creature.
Just note, it has coconut oil in it so you probably don’t want to store it in the barn when it’s cold outside. It’ll be as solid as a rock and it won’t help you or your animal.
First, I weighed out 3 ounces of organic olive oil on my postal scale.
I placed the jar with all of my ingredients in a double boiler to melt them together. (I like these little jars)
I added my essential oils next. I used 15 drops Frankincense, 15 drops of Lavender, 15 drops of Melaleuca, 10 drops of a protective blend, and 5 drops of Helichrysum. These oils make it awesome! No, really, they do!
After it was all blended, I placed the jar in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to speed up the cooling process. It solidified nicely and evenly into an easy to use cream. I hope you’ll give it a try and let me know how you like it!
