Aromatherapy Recipe for Minor Cuts and Scrapese

"Boo Boo Juice"

Aromatherapy Recipe for Cuts and Scrapes

Sometimes our little ones get a boo boo, and the fear from their injury is far greater than the boo boo itself. For these times when your little precious one is crying hard but the boo boo is minor, have him/her "help" you make this easy recipe. It gets them involved in learning first aid, helps take their mind off the boo boo, and the lavender blend helps calm them and kill a few germs. Note: This recipe isn't intended for serious cuts/scrapes or injuries.

Ingredients

Directions

Depending on the age and abilities of your little one, have him/her help you by saturating a cotton ball with Witch Hazel Hydrosol. To ensure that no bacteria contaminates your bottle of hydrosol, pour a little bit of hydrosol into a tiny bowl, and then have your child dip the cotton ball into the bowl. Then, apply one drop of lavender to the saturated cotton ball. Have your little one smell the "boo boo juice." Since lavender helps bring calm, the aroma can be soothing. Then, apply the boo boo juice to the minor cut/scrape or allow your little one to take charge and do it. Apply a band aid if necessary.

I prefered to use this method when my daughter got little cuts and scrapes, as the process of "making" the boo boo juice helped take her mind off of her injury.

Alternative Method

If you prefer, you can create a pre-blended bottle of boo-boo juice to have ready for unexpected minor cuts and scrapes when there's no time to make it. Add 1 ounce of Witch Hazel Hydrosol to a clean glass bottle. Then, add 5-6 drops of lavender. Be sure to shake well prior to each use. Store in the refrigerator and use within 2-3 months.
