Dr. Mom's First Aid Spray Recipe

Today starts a series of posts I have scheduled for June and July that feature the various essential oil recipes I've been testing and using for the last 8 months or so. I have a good handful of recipes that I've enjoyed using in that time, so I'll be sharing them with you over the summer. 

Today I'll share with you a super-simple recipe for a First Aid Spray you won't want to be without. It takes all of about a minute or two to whip up, and is excellent to spray on minor cuts and wounds. 

Dr. Mom's First Aid Spray Recipe: 

  • 8 oz distilled water
  • 5 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 3 drops Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) essential oil** (OR Purification Oil)
  • 2 drops Cypress essential oil (OR Purification Oil)

To make it, just combine ingredients in a non-clear spray bottle and shake vigorously. To use it, just give it a good shake and then spray onto cuts and wounds before applying a bandage. Repeate 2-3 times daily.

Not only is this spray great to keep the wound clean (it's antifungal, antibacterial, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobal, and strongly anti-septic), but it's also highly regenerative to speed healing. And I love having it in spray form so there's no need to touch tender areas directly. Just spray, and you're good to go.
