This is one of the BEST home remedies I have ever used for diaper rash. When I was a teenager I babysat for a neighbor and she always had me slather this on her boys bottoms before bedtime. She said they NEVER got diaper rashes. When my oldest was a baby and began to get rashes I called her and got the recipe. It works!
I have shared it with so many moms that had children with severe rashes and were using the expensive mini tubes of prescription medication and even that wasn’t working! I have seen in clear up bad rashes on my babies and grandbabies within a few applications. I got it’s name from my oldest daughter. When I was mixing it up for her first born she said, “Mom that’ looks like butter and honey mixed together!” The name has stuck!
Be sure to use the name brands on these ingredients. I have tried the generic and it doesn’t seem to work as well.
Ghee’s Hiney Honey
1 part Vaseline
1 part A & D ointment
1 part zinc oxide
1 tube of lanolin
Mix all together well and store in a jar that has a lid. This stuff lasts forever! If you don’t want to measure just get the smallest container and tubes available in those brand. The lanolin comes in a tiny tube and it a bit pricey but so worth it. Especially when you look at how many applications you will be getting!
Each time you use it be sure to wash the area and pat dry before applying. It can be used as a regular diaper change ointment if you like. Do not rub it in, apply a thick coating.
