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've ordered from you before and have always received my order in a timely manner. The teas have been very tasty. I will be trying the Vinegar of the Four Thieves this spring. I have it all mixed up and ready to go. Thank you so much for all the information you include on your web site. I've been able to start using herbs right away. I received The How to Herb Book now so will be able to do even more. Thank you very much.

Did You Know?

After childbirth, a mama's body is gearing up for breastfeeding. It also begins a cleansing process as chemicals, hormones, and nutrients are all adjusting to proper levels as before the pregnancy. The liver, kidneys, colon, etc. are all very involved in this cleansing. Herbs that aid in this process are known as liver cleansers and as blood purifiers. Amazingly enough, many of the liver cleansers and blood purifiers also promote milk production. Some of these herbs are: Fennel, Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, and Dandelion. Most of us may not see the relation between breastfeeding and cleansing. However, God provided the herbs that aid the new mother to get both jobs done. The Mama's Milk Tea recipe was contributed by one of our readers, and includes herbs for after birth.
