Re: COCONUT OIL, and what I discovered about rashes and yeast

So glad you found a solution! I love coconut oil, too! I go into my older kids rooms at night before I go to bed and put in on their chapped winter lips and faces. It helps so much!

You could get an inexpensive wipes warmer, keep a small tub if it in there with your wipes and it will stay liquid.

Thanks so much for sharing a solution! Not everybody who is just working on enough posts to sell is so thoughtful!

We love coconut oil here too. I use a recycled container from our previous baby cream (we used to use California Baby calendula cream) that I washed out and filled with organic coconut oil. I just take out a tiny piece if it is solid and gently rub it into the skin. My 3yo begs for coconut oil on his face before bed, he loves the smell of it. Great stuff

Re: COCONUT OIL, and what I discovered about rashes and yeast

Thanks I'm just passing the information on because anything that makes my families life a little easier will probably help someone else's family too!

About the wipes warmer, I have the prince Lionheart warmer but unfortunately it doesn't fit paper towels! I'm sure if I had cloth wipes or cut the paper towels right it would work, but that's ALOT or effort, lol.

If you whip the coconut oil for a couple minutes with either handheld or stand mixer it gets beautifully fluffy and will stay super soft if you keep it in a sealed container between uses
