In past weeks, we shared some other natural remedies that feature coconut oil. If those didn’t convince you to go out and get a jar of this frugal living friendly ingredient, today’s tip should at least convince the parents with children in diapers.
Coconut oil has many natural healing properties but what makes it effective in natural remedies for diaper rash is that it works well against bacterial or fungal type irritations. All you need to do is when you change your child’s diaper, wash their bottom with a warm, wet cloth, allow their bottom to dry completely and then spread a light coating of coconut oil onto the affected area.
Pack a jar of coconut oil with you, wherever you go, because you just never know when you will have another use for this frugal living ingredient.
