Remedies for Heat Rash are Cooled Quickly
with Essential Oils

Remedies for heat rash can be easily made with essential oils. As a matter of fact one can use the same remedy with different quantities for a baby, child or adult!

Heat rash is also called Prickly Heat or miliaria because of the small red or pink spots or blisters that form on the skin.

What is Prickly Heat?

Prickly heat rash is caused by blocked sweat glands where the perspiration actually becomes trapped under your skin. It affects any part of the body and is very itchy!

It can be caused by overheating, non-wicking clothing and even heavy synthetic creams and lotions that won’t allow the skin to breathe.

Babies are prone to heat rash because their sweat glands have not fully developed and any overheating creates this situation.

What Prickly Heat Treatment is Recommended?

Here are a few tips to care for heat rash:

  • Cool your body temperature and stay cool

  • Expose the area of the rash to air if possible

  • Wear light weight cotton clothing over the rash. Avoid synthetic materials if possible.

  • And make and use essential oil remedies for heat rash.

What Essential Oils do we use for Prickly Heat?

We want to use therapeutic grade essential oils that have natural anti-inflammatory and antipruritic (relieves itching) properties. These oils will relieve the inflammation and reduce the itchiness from the rash. The oils that contain these properties are:

The oils marked with two asterisks, **, are known to relieve itching due to allergies, insects or dry skin as well.

For a warm bath Valerie Ann Worwood in her book The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy suggests using 4 drops of eucalyptus and lavender.

Any time one takes a bath using essential oils, I suggest adding the oils to Epsom salts or baking soda first; and then adding the mixture to the water. For heat rash, the best base to use is baking soda.

Lavender Bath Recipes

Here are the amounts that Valerie Ann Worwood recommends in the bath for remedies for heat rash:

Baby Two and Under

  • 2 Drops Lavender Essential Oil

  • 1/4 cup Baking Soda

Child Two to Seven

  • 2 Drops Lavender Essential Oil

  • 1/2 cup Baking Soda

Child Eight to Ten

  • 3 Drops Lavender Essential Oil

  • 1/2 cup Baking Soda

Child (eleven and over) and Adults

  • 4 Drops Lavender Essential Oil

  • 1 cup Baking Soda

I also recommend a product called LavaDerm Cooling Mist. It contains therapeutic grade lavender oil, aloe vera and ionic trace minerals.

It is excellent for any type of burn as well and comes in a convenient spray application. It cools and moisturizes the skin quickly!

Or go ahead and make your own remedies for heat rash Spritz! But make sure the aloe vera gel is as pure as the oil! So many of essential oils or aloe vera gels contain additives; and this won't help your rash, it will make it worst
