Rachel Stevens reveals ‘very special blend’ for fighting chickenpox

Mum Rachel shares how she has been tackling daughter Amelie’s ‘many pox’


Rachel Stevens has found herself in the middle of a very scratchy issue – chickenpox.


Rachel, 34, asked both her Twitter followers and a local pharmacist for tips to tackle, what she described as, daughter Amelie’s “many pox”.

With all the advice she received, Rachel came up with a trio of treatments to soothe her little girl. Rachel tweeted, “I smell of a mix of bicarbonate of soda, neem oil and calamine oil… very special blend!”

The former S Club 7 singer later swapped to just neem oil in the bath before admitting, “I just went to put the milk in the oven… I need my bed!”

Luckily for Amelie, who turns 2 in November, Rachel later tweeted, “Music group time for us… doc said pox aren’t catching anymore… we are aloud (sic) out, whoop!!!”
