When you have a cut or a scrape – a “boo boo” if you will – the first thing you need to do is clean it, and you have to keep it clean if you want to avoid what could be a serious infection. Many people don’t realize that there are many essential oils that contain antibacterial properties, so off they go to the pharmacy to get a tube of Neosporin, which is perfectly useful and beneficial for keeping away infections. However, there are people with skin sensitivities that may have issues with this common over-the-counter option. It is not uncommon for people to develop skin inflammation after applying these ointments. For those of us with sensitive skin, or those who are simply curious about the power of essential oils to ward off infection, I give you BooBoo Spray. Yes, that is the name – a bit of nostalgia for what we all used to say to our mothers when we got hurt (I actually said BoBo…I am from Louisiana and we are weird).
So, what is in it? Our BooBoo Spray is made from distilled water, tea tree oil, lavender oil, and jasmine oil. The tea tree oil is an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory essential oil. Along with jasmine, which also helps to rid your wound of harmful bacteria, the tea tree oil cleans and disinfects to prevent infection. The final ingredient, lavender, helps to relieve pain naturally. So there you have it – you are going to smell great, feel relaxed (another perk of lavender), clean your wound, and ease the pain.
