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.

Hi April, I am so grateful for the peppermint & spearmint tea bags that you sent me. That was so nice of you! When I opened the package it smelled soooo good! I tried the peppermint in the tea I made today and this batch came out better than any of the others so far. I think I'm finally getting the hang of making the tea without over-steeping it. And the peppermint really helps. I only put one teabag in for a pot of water big enough to fill a pitcher.

Did You Know?

Split ends and frail hair can be drastically reduced by simply consuming Horsetail cut and/or powder. Also, weak and thin fingernails can be stronger and thicker after just a few weeks. The nutritional structure of Horsetail is well known as one of the best cures for such annoyances. Just add a bit of the cut herb to any tea combination. In a tincture, it would even be more effective. The powder can also be encapsulated, if you prefer. Continue usage even after you see improvements to make them more permanent.

Kelp would be our second choice as a nutritional powerhouse that can make a noticeable difference. Consuming both would be the best way to tackle it.
