Diaper Rash Home Remedy

All of my boys had bad diaper rashes at one time or another while they were babies. It is one of the most excruciatingly painful things that happens so quickly. Change of diet, teething, medicine, illness and allergies are just a few of the reasons many babies get diaper rashes.

Here is a recipe for a diaper rash home remedy. While all of my babies are out of diapers, I made some of this up and gave it to a friend to use on her little one who gets bad diaper rashes from time to time.

It worked. Within one diaper change.  Redness, pain and inflammation gone. And, it is made of natural things from the earth.

This is super easy to make and uses just two ingredients. Takes all of two minutes to make.

    This is a great idea. My daughter’s diaper rashes get worse with the diaper rash cream from the store. I use bag balm and have been very lucky she does not get really bad ones. She is getting older now but I may buy some lavender just in case it is needed. Thanks.

      I have seen a couple of variations online. This one seems to be the simplest and coconut oil and lavender have such amazing healing and soothing properties.
      I bet the rose petals make it smell amazing!

    I am making this for my grand daughter’s little behind. She gets such horrible rashes. I wish I would have known this when my grandson was in diapers. He got bad rashes too. Coconut oil is so wonderful for some many things. Thanks for linking up to Tips and Tricks. Hope to see you again this week.
