• Diaper Rash Remedy

    Caffeine for Plants-burnedflour.jpg Diaper rash (& Heat rash!) can come on rather quickly, particularly when a baby is teething or experiencing allergies
    to various foods, a switch from diaper brands, etc. Here is a simple, do it yourself remedy
    to quickly soothe away an irritating rash.

    Simple throw some plain all-purpose flour in a skillet over medium heat and continue stirring it until browned. Remove from heat, Cool completely.

    Apply flour following every diaper change; the rash should clear up completely within three days.

    This remedy also works on heat rash, which is common during the hot summer months.

      My children are 46 and 44 and my Grandma told me about browned flour and cornstarch too. Makes sense, in the real old days they either didn't have baby powder or not enough money for things.

      My husband works in the oilfield and comes home with bad heat rash. Sometimes almost from head to toe. And I do what I can but nothing seems to work. I'm definitely going try this when he get home this time.

      I was wondering if you could use self-rising flour? I don't buy plain flour. I could get some in a couple of days but I really need this right now. Thanks !!!

      In response to Iswhite I don't think you can use self-rising flour because it has salt in it. I think the salt would make the skin burn and itch.

    Re: Morphine Bomb- Natural Pain Relief

    I would love to try this but the cost of those oils that you put in the link is damn scary for this disabled person on a broken shoestring budget. Any tips on finding less expensive quality oils?
