My sweet little baby boy always had such sensitive skin. I am not even sure how I came upon this recipe, but once I used it I never had any reason to look back.
GAH!!! Look at my sweet little old man baby. Gosh he was the cutest! When he was very small little, he had gotten a rash in his diaper area. I recognized it might be a bit yeasty and didn't want to go the Nystatin route with him because I had to use that on one of my other boys and it burned his little bum so bad he would cry when I put it on. I came across some suggestions online and was able to toss together this handy baby bum powder, which doubles as a mosquito bug salve for after bite. We use a base of bentonite clay powder (I've always preferred the Redmond's) and then for a mosquito bite paste we just would add water before we apply. For the whole container of powder, I added:
10 drops helichrysum
10 drops tea tree I just close the lid and shake the powder profusely until it is all mixed and use is sparingly. A little of this goes so long for me. We also just used this at any sign of redness in his bum area and it always cleared. I have even used this on candida for adults in the family. It has cleared very quickly.
