Hi friends! How was the holiday weekend? Ours was fantastic. I'm very excited because today we are announcing the winners of the Gratitude 5K and Giveaway! Be sure to check in later, when they are announced!!!
I have a great natural antiseptic spray recipe that I want to share with you today.
With a very active two year old, we experience a lot of scrapes and bumps throughout our day. This is a very useful tool we keep handy for every day use. I keep some in the diaper bag, with my workout gear, and in the kitchen. It's a DIY, all natural, antiseptic spray that not only has germ fighting properties but also soothing and healing properties.
All of the ingredients in this antiseptic spray are natural, gentle, and each serves a very important purpose.
Lavender oil is soothing, antibacterial and can help prevent scarring. Frankincense oil can help prevent against tetanus and sepsis, and can also act as an anticoagulant to help control bleeding. Tea Tree oil (or Melalecula oil) is a great natural antiseptic used for cuts, abrasions, burns, bee stings, and insect bites. Witch Hazel is an anti-inflammatory, and also helps control bleeding and bruising. Vitamin E oil promotes healing and Aloe Vera Gel soothes, while speeding up healing time by improving circulation.
1 tbsp. Witch Hazel
2 tbsp. Aloe Vera Gel
2 tbsp. Vitamin E Oil
10 drops Lavender
10 drops Frankincense
10 drops Tea Tree (or Melalecula)
Small spray bottle
Add all ingredients to a glass measuring cup and mix well. Pour mixture into small spray bottle. I buy mine from Chemistry and Co on Etsy. Fill remainder of spray bottle with water.
We love this spray for all of our cut and scrape needs. Another very cool thing about it is that it doubles as a hand sanitizer, for when we are in a pinch!
Enjoy your day!
