We use this cream on baby bums and also on rashes/owies. It works great to heal diaper rash, scrapes, burns and we've started using it on the rash Parker developed on his thighs.
I am still trying to figure out what did, or is, causing the rash on Parker but my thought is maybe from the chlorine pool at school. At preschool they have swimming lessons once a week, and the rash started developing about a month or two ago. It is very dry, red patches, and only on his thighs (where his swim trunks would be). After regular lotion didn't work to clear up the dryness, I decided to try our rash cream... On the rash (genius, I tell you!) The rash is slowly going away, so between the cream, and the fact that they haven't had swimming lessons at school for a couple weeks, we have hope! YAY!!!
If you want to try making this cream at home here is what you will need:
>lavender essential oil (optional)
>tea tree oil (optional)
I was lucky this summer at the farmers market and picked up a few chunks beeswax! I used about half of one of these chunks (about 1-2 Tbs I'm guessing)
After everything was melted together I gave it a stir and set aside to cool and solidify.
I am hoping to get some more things made up before our baby girl gets here, but we shall see!
