If you are making a first aid ointment for the first time this is a simple and easy formula. My top 3 favorite essential oils just happen to be lavender, tea tree and lemon oil. They are amazing and can be used to help heal about 80 percent of cuts and scrapes. Most people are not sensitive to these oils when used with a carrier oil, but always check on a small area of skin just to be sure when using essential oils for the first time.
These oils are amazing- they are anti- bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal. Little kids are constantly getting bumps, bruises and bites everywhere. I am always amazed at how often these occurrences are :).
Check out this formula if you have the time and resources to make it yourself. I will also link a few of my favorites online.
1. 5 ounces beeswax
1 cup olive or coconut oil
4-6 drops lemon oil
4-6 drops tea tree oil
2-4 drops lavender oil
Heat oil and beeswax on very LOW heat until melted (about 5-10 minutes).
Remove from heat and add essential oils.
Pour into small sterilized jar. Don’t forget to let it cool. #mommybrain
