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.

Hello,
Just wanted to thank you for the great website! I recently received my order from you. It came very quickly! I was pleasantly surprised by the smell of the fresh lavender. The package was sitting on my counter unopened and we
could still smell it! I can't wait to use them and I will definitely be ordering more from you.

I also wanted to thank you for the information you have about garlic. My son started getting a cough with chest congestion. I began giving him a crushed clove mixed into lemon juice and honey 3 times a day. In two days he was better! He has gotten it before and it seems to linger for weeks! I also started feeling the flu coming on not to long ago, I did the same thing and in two days my aches, fever, and sore throat were gone! Thank you so much for sharing that info with us.


Did You Know?

Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
