A Natural Remedy for Baby Acne

After trying a variety of recipes, I've found a natural remedy for baby acne that is perfect to help resolve diaper rash and facial acne for infants and babies.

It can actually be used for acne anywhere on the body, and can be equally effective for teenagers with acne issues.

I made a really short video (two minutes!) to show you how to make the spray, but the recipe is also listed below.

Natural Remedy for Baby Acne Recipe

1/2 oz (15 ml) German chamomile hydrosol
1/2 oz (15 ml) helichrysum hydrosol
A few drops of aloe vera gel
1 oz (30 ml) spray bottle

Just spray it on the area of concern multiple times daily as long as it seems to be helping. I recommend making this product fresh every few weeks.

Hydrosols are by-products of the essential oil distillation process. They are healing waters that are very gentle on the skin.

German chamomile and helichrysum hydrosols are cooling and soothing for hot, irritated areas of the skin. But most importantly, hydrosols are safe on babies' skin (and as a side note, hydrosols are also my favorite choice for cat or dog skin issues and abscesses). German chamomile and helichrysum hydrosols are so gentle and nourishing they can be used directly on the skin--even on infants.
