Do you have any unconventional medicine cabinet must haves that you'd like to share?

I love tea tree oil, I use it on everything! Grapefruit seed extract as well. And epsom salt is a staple.

I use tea tree oil instead of antibacterial ointment. When my son just had a boil on his butt, I put TTO on it throughout the day to let it burst. I've put it on rashes, cuts, cold sores, and in my cloth diaper laundry. It works so well to kill the nasties!

I didn't realize you could use tea tree oil straight like that! I've heard that mixing cocnut oil and tea tree oil together makes the best diaper rash cream

WOW, I didnt know that about TTO. I'll have to get some.

I've also heard that coconut oil works great for ear infections. We should have tried it on Ryan when he was getting them so much before his tubes.

We keep Emergen-C at all times. It works great for us!

My cousin just recommended that I put a couple drops of Tea Tree oil in Jonah's shampoo to help heal his cradle cap. Hope it works!

I haven't found any human version that is quite as good quality!

I always have emergen-c in the house as well!!
And I wast to get some grapefruit seed extract since I've read a lot about it. It's supposed to be good to disinfect cloth diapers. We are still dealing with rash issues.

Me and DF never get sick. He has probably been sick once in the 6 years we've been together and I've probably been sick twice so we do not have any medicine in the house lol maybe when Jayden goes to day care we will get some medicine
