Essential Oils

Teething Rash

Tabitha Helms

We are deep in the throes of teething over here. Unfortunately for Judah, he seems to be following his daddy's pattern of teething: shifting teeth for a week and then nothing for two or three weeks. For his sake, I just want him to get it over with and get those teeth to finally push through! It's been 4 months of this already and though we can see the teeth through his gums, they haven't broken yet.  

With the teething territory comes the drool. Some days are worse than others where the drool is actively dripping (there's a great visual for you, I know) but most of the time it just covers his chin because he's chewing on his teething toys all the time. Because of this, he's developed a red, rash on his chin. It doesn't seem to bother him, but it doesn't look very comfortable either.  

  • Melaleuca is renowned for its cleansing and rejuvenating effect on the skin.
  • For occasional skin irritations, apply one to two drops of Melaleuca essential oil onto affected areas.
  • Melaleuca helps to reduce the appearance of blemishes when applied to the skin.

For all of these reasons, we use Melaleuca Touch for his skin. We apply it before bedtime after his bath, and it looks much better in the morning.

Remember to use caution when applying essential oils to babies. I love the Touch Kit because the oils are diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil in the perfect ratios. I don't have to worry about whether or not I diluted well enough for his sensitive skin.
