There are days where I feel so totally grateful and thankful to have such a wonderful and supportive essential oils community. My 1 1/2 year old niece has been having really extreme diaper rash and my brother said that nothing they tried work. Of course I was like, wait "we have an oil for that!"
Last week I consulted with the moms in the essential oils community group to see what works best on that type of rash and received some excellent information. So I whipped up some coconut oil, shea butter, and essential oils and then sent them a care package, which arrived a few days later.
On Wednesday. I asked my brother how it was working and he said that "it seems to have stopped the rash from getting worse. Today it's look better like the marks are fading." My poor niece was in such agony from the pain of sores that were bleeding, but things are looking on the up and up for her. I'm so happy that I was able to help them out. I checked back on Friday and he said that the rash was " pretty much gone."
