Diaper Rash, a "Thyme-ly" remedy

by JL

November 2009

My daughter had a red diaper rash with what looked like hives. She was in a lot of pain and even the all-natural diaper cream didn't seem to help much.

Remembering that thyme is antibacterial and antifungal, I made a strong thyme tea and let it cool to body temperature. I dabbed it on with a cotton ball twice before bed and by morning the rash was gone! I've used it several times since then and it works every time! It also seems to ease the pain in less than a minute.

I received my shipment, and immediately made a batch of Miracle Herbal Rub - My husband is very happy, he's not a bit sore! Thank you so much. I know that will be a staple in our home. :) Blessings.

Did You Know?

Cayenne powder has been used by researchers in Antarctica to help them bear the extremely cold temperatures. The cayenne powder is sprinkled into their boots before putting them on. As the powder slowly comes in contact with the skin through the socks, it will draw blood to the feet, thus bringing much needed warms to the extremities. The one draw back is the red powder stains light colored socks. From our readings, it seems the stained socks were a small price to pay for the great benefit of being able to feel your toes after a little while out in the blistering cold! After trying this on a number of occasions during the winter near Lake Superior, I'm also convinced the stained socks are worth it.
