8 Coconut Oil Hacks for the Whole Family


2. Baby

Coconut oil works 2 ways for diaper rash in babies, as a method of prevention and as a healant. It contains antimicrobial, antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties that help to promote healing. It also contains lauric acid (which is also found in breast milk) to help treat bacterial and fungal problems. On top of its healing agents, coconut oil can act as a barrier between the skin and the moisture/waste in your baby’s diaper.

Don’t just stop at using it on your baby’s bottom. You can completely eliminate baby lotions from your home and replace them with coconut oil. It can also be used to spot treat patches of dryness that babies often get. This is an especially great solution for those little ones with sensitive skin.
