Whats the best/least expensive diaper rash cream?

I'm new CD and wondering what other moms think is the best diaper cream that is not overly expensive.

Can you explain the logistics of using oil? Do you keep it in hot water all the time so it's liquefied? Isn't it expensive? Does it stain?

I know that this is a CDing no-no, but I use A&D very sparingly with 100% cotton diapers and never have trouble with it not washing out. I also like CJ's Butter.

Coconut oil all the way. It melts instantly on babies bum.

Coconut oil has a low melting point, 76 degrees I think. If it is solid in your house, it melts on contact with baby's bum or your hands. It is a miracle worker, anti fungal, antibacterial, and safe for cloth diapers. As for cost, it's a lot cheaper than many CD safe creams.

I use lanolin left over from bfing. Already had it- works great and cheapest for me since its re-purposing.

Coconut oil is good for a little redness but if there is already a rash only Earth Angel Baby Balm works for us.
