Ask any mother and it seems our kids are always getting hurt. One way or another something happens and we need to get out the good old first aid kit. Have you ever read the labels on these first aid products? Judging based on the labels it is mostly chemicals. I don’t know about you , but putting chemicals on my kids skin just doesn’t sit well with me. So now what do we do when your son decides to jump off the top of the tree house and cuts his leg? Well we make our own neosporin. With a combination of the right oils and skin protecting essential oils you will make a magical antibacterial cream all chemical free. Lavander essential oil helps with any potential scaring to help reduce the appearance or scares all together. Frankincense helps to stop the bleeding from wounds and helps repair new skin cells. Tea tree and lemon essential oils are antibacterial and anti-fungal , so it will kill and ward off any potential of new bacterial growth.
- 1/4 cup of castor oil
- 1/4 cup of organic virgin coconut oil
- 2 Tablespoons of beeswax
- 20 drops of lavender essential oil
- 12 drops of frankincense essential oil
- 10 drops of lemon essential oil
- 8 drops of tea tree essential oil
Fill a pot up with water and bring it to a boil. Place glass bowl or glass measuring cup in the water. Add castor oil, coconut oil and beeswax ; mix until all melted and combined. Remove from the water and add all the essential oils. Pour into desired container, allow to cool. This makes about 5 ounces and just like traditional neosporin apply a very thin layer over cleaned cut, cover with a bandage. Apply 2 a day until healed.
