  • 5 Uses of Petroleum Jelly for You and Your Kid

    Who would have thought this inexpensive product could be good for so many things?
  • Ever since your little one was born, you've been spending on expensive products just to take care of her health. Give your wallet a rest by getting a tub of petroleum jelly. It isn't just inexpensive. It gives you bang for your buck because of the many different ways you can use it on your child (and on yourself, too)!

    Petroleum jelly can treat these: 

    Cuts, scrapes, and gashes

    Moisture speeds up the healing of cuts and scrapes. Applying petroleum jelly will lock in that moisture. This remedy is perfect for active kids who always manage to fall and hurt themselves while on the playground.

    Pollen allergy

    When you find yourself sneezing because of the pollen in the air, you can keep the allergens from entering your nose by applying a bit of petroleum jelly on the insides of your nostrils. The jelly will trap the pollen so it doesn't go all the way in. Just wipe and rinse off the jelly when you're safely indoors.


    When you or your child has a runny nose, the skin around your nostrils dries up and cracks. Rubbing a little petroleum jelly around the edges can ease the itch and soreness. Doing this can also prevent a nosebleed brought on by a cold. 

    Chapped lips, wind burn, and dry patches 

    After a day in the outdoors, it's possible that you and your little one will come home with cheeks that are red, chapped, and painful. Slather some petroleum jelly all over your face to relieve the burn. Petroleum jelly can also relieve cracked skin on your cuticles, elbows, and heels.

    Cold sores

    If your child gets a cold sore around her lips, moisturize and protect it by covering it with a little bit of petroleum jelly. It will keep germs out while speeding up the healing process of the sore.

    It's very important to choose the right kind of petroleum jelly; make sure it's recommended by dermatologists. Vaseline Jelly is 100% pure petroleum jelly. It contains no impurities because it is triple-purified and highly refined. Non-comedogenic (doesn't clog pores) and hypoallergenic, it's safe enough both for you and your little ones.
