DIY Butt Stuff

Butts are one of those taboo topics nobody wants to talk about, but everyone want to know about! So guess what? I'm writing about it. Let the haters hate but your butt is about to feel awesome. You are welcome.

Before we begin--- there is something you should know about me. I have no shame. Seriously. None. I was a nurse for nearly a decade so I will talk about ANYTHING! The words "vomit", "explosive diarrhea", and "puss oozing sores" fall out of my mouth frequently.... over dinner. And I LIKE it. So you can see, butt talk is nothing to me. You may want to sit down.

And, yes, I am aware the title of this post could be considered potentially pornographic. And there is a really good reason why I decided on this particular name -- I find it absolutely hilarious. Seriously. That's my only reason. 

Well, I guess if I'm being completely honest there is a backstory. Wanna hear it?!

If you've been reading my blog for a while then this post may seem somewhat familiar. The original recipe was published before, but... um....  I got in trouble. You see, I was told that I couldn't call the article the original title heinie helper because it may have implied things healing that I am not allowed to say without being a medical doctor.

So, I put my thinking cap on and came up with the most obvious answer-- a potential porn title. WHY?! First of all, it absolutely can't be confused with medical advice. Second, I am going to get an entirely new audience reading about non-toxic wellness. How awesome is that?! Go ahead. Be inspired by my brilliance. 

Homemade Butt Stuff Balm
  • 4 drops Myrrh or Helichrysum 
  • 3 drops Melrose 
  • 2 drop Frankincense  
  • 2 drop of Lavender or Roman Chamomile 
  • 1-4 TBSP Rose Ointment or KidScents Tender Tush (as needed) but in a pinch you can use coconut oil, too, but you may have to store it in the fridge to keep it solid. 

If you don't have butt friendly essential oils (some lower quality ones may, um, irritate your sensitive places), then check out how to find Quality Essential Oils.

If you have good quality essential oils that you trust, then just mix the ingredients into a small glass salve container. Once it's all mixed, then just spread those cheeks, and apply a small amount of the balm mixture on the "external area" after your "business" or as desired. It may sting slightly when first applied and this should quickly resolve, but honestly, mostly it just feels awesome.

You may have noticed that I have a decent range for the essential oil to ointment ratio. You may be wondering where to start?! Why is there even a range?! Well, there is a good reason: your butt is special.

Let's look at the facts. Your butt is different from my butt. In fact, no one in the entire world will ever have your backside. The truth is that it wants different things, new experiences and more or less essential oil than other behinds. That's just how bottoms work.

There is wide variation that can work to help that heinie reach it's full potential so glob just mix it together, see what happens and adjust accordingly. Trust me, your buttocks won't fall off or blow or up anything if it's not exactly right.

Alternative "Butt Stuff" Ideas

DIY Butt Stuff Wipes

If you want to make butt wipes, then check out this recipe
Pour over small amount of organic cotton rounds and keep sealed in a jar. If your wipes get dry-- just add more witch hazel!

DIY Butt Stuff Spray 
One of my other favorite ways to use it is to make a spray. And, yes, I totally spray my bottom, but be warned-- it takes talent. There is finesse required to spread cheeks, balance, aim and spray. It's not for the light of heart.
  • Travel Size Glass Spray Bottle (I use these)
  • Add Butt Stuff Essential Oils
  • Fill rest with Witch Hazel (non-alcoholic is important unless you want your butt to be on fire-- I like to use this brand)
Spread those cheeks and spray away. Ahhhhhh!!!!

Your butt will thank you!

Thanks for checking out my blog. I get serious about a few things in life: animals, chemicals, and food. For the rest I can't promise anything so keep the bar low. For more about me check out my "About Me" page! Happy DIYing!


  1. Doesn't witch hazel burn? I have heard it does and wouldn't want it on that "area". Where do you find the Rose Ointment?

    1. Hi Nancy! I use non-alcoholic witch hazel so it doesn't burn very much. It can sting a little bit, but it goes away pretty quickly. The Rose Ointment is also from Young Living :)

  2. Thank you for addressing this embarrassing topic! I know some of us having just been suffering through...

  3. Hi I'm new to your site , can you tell me what this is for? Is it for a happy scented butt, or for rashes ? Or what? Thanks

    1. Since I am not a doctor, I can't tell you that it can heal or treat any existing disease or ailment. It is for more than a pretty scented butt though-- it is for wellness! However, what I will say is that when used regularly it can help keep your behind healthy and happy.

  4. For the ointment base, what do you think of Badger Balms? I like that they seem to have less ingredients than Burt's Bees (and easier to understand) and work great. I have quite a collection and the coconut vanilla scent is one I don't like, much as I love how it works for hands and skin. I could totally use that for this purpose. It's their usual base of coconut oil, EVOO and beeswax, with castor oil and 2 CO2 extracts. What do you think?

    1. Hi! You can use an balm/lotion base you like for this recipe, but I would just be sure to check with the EWG skin deep database to make sure they are a 0-1 rating. You want to be especially careful with such a sensitive (and absorbent) area!

  5. LOL LMAO I love this post and I love, love, LOVE your style, way of writing, and honesty. :) Thank you for posting this!

  6. Hahaha!! You are awesome! A kindred spirit!
