Oils are good for drawing moisture away from an area, so using essential oils properly help alleviate and clear up diaper rashes on buttocks, genitals, and thighs. Because of their gentle healing properties, chamomile, lavender, sandalwood and tea tree essential oils are four good choices and work well.
One option is mixing 6 drops of lavender essential oil and 2 drops of chamomile essential oil with 2 ounces of vegetable oil. Another option is mixing a few drops of one of these essential oils into a small amount of cornstarch to make homemade baby powder. Apply either the powder or the essential oil mixture with each diaper change to form a barrier between your baby’s skin and any irritants, and watch how quickly the rash heals. Use these as often as you need to. In addition, the homemade baby oil is good as an all-over body massage oil for your young one.
