Before I even had kids I had heard bad things about baby products and how the chemicals in them can be cancer causing. Why would we want to use things that are harmful, especially for our precious little children? But once I had my first son, I saw how bad diaper rashes could get, and I was conflicted on what to use to help relieve his pain. We ended up using the one I had heard bad things about out of desperation. But I did not feel good about it at all.
Soon after I started looking for a more natural diaper rash cream, and started using that and still do occasionally. However, when I came across this DIY spray I thought I would give it a try. I absolutely love it, and my boys bums are happy about it. Not only is it natural, but all you have to do is spray it on, instead of wiping on a cream with your finger. And that's always dangerous after a poppy diaper.
I don't always use this after every diaper change, but I do find myself using it a couple times a day, whether they have a little redness or not, just people I know it's good for their skin.
The best way is to give it a couple of sprays after you have changed and wiped baby, then let it air dry for a few seconds. This will help it to adhere to the skin rather than the diaper. I'll usually let it sit for 10 seconds or longer.
Use as needed.
Benefits of Frankincense:
There are plenty of health benefits, but the main ones are that it helps to relieve chronic stress, anxiety, reduces pain, reduces inflammation, and even potentially to fight cancer.
It's also Biblical! According to the Hebrew Bible, frankincense and myrrh were components of the holy incense ritually burned in Jerusalem's sacred temples during ancient times. So put some in a diffusor while you're at it!
Benefits of Lavender:
Lavender offers a calming benefit just from the smell. But when it comes to the skin it helps to reduce redness, blotchy patches, and has an antiseptic property to help the skin to heal faster.
Since both Frankincense and Lavender are beneficial or the skin, you can even use this spray on your face to help with redness, acne, or to help with wrinkles.
