Have you ever heard of Udder Balm? Not to be confused with Udderly Smooth on the shelves of Wal-mart. I hadn’t either until I had my daughter.
I was living with my grandparents in a small town in Iowa. I became friends with a lovely Amish woman. She gave me many useful tips, udder balm was one of them. The best place to find it is at your local farm supply store.
If you happen to live in a big city and there are no farm supply stores nearby, you can order it from Amazon using the link above. (Have I told you, I love Amazon.)
It’s original use was for cow teets but there are actually many great uses for humans as well. Cow teets can become chafed from milking, either by hand or machine. Farmers would (and do) apply udder balm to heal the chafing.
No matter how hard we try keeping our babies bottom clean and dry, most all babies get a diaper rash at some point. Udder balm is a great remedy for this.
What else is it good for? Let me tell you!
- chapped lips
- sore/chafed nose from blowing
- scrapes and cuts
- chapped hands
- use as a barrier for your skin when dying your hair
- dry heels
- any dry/cracked skin
If you decide to give it a try you won’t be sorry.
Let me know what you thought.
