What do you do when your child or grandchild gets a little scratch or scrape and comes running to you crying? Well, I just kiss it, wipe away the tears, and together we go to “doctor it up” with a non-stinging first aid solution for minor cuts and bruises.

Let your child help and learn first aid. Saturate a cotton ball with witch hazel and one to two drops of lavender essential oil. Gently wipe the affected area and add a fun band-aid. This will take their mind off the boo-boo and the lavender will calm them down and kill the germs.

An even faster method is to pre-blend the witch hazel in a one-ounce bottle and add five to six drops of lavender essential oil. Shake the bottle before use to mix the ingredients. The next time your youngster gets a minor injury, you’ll already have a liquid first aid concoction on hand and the child can shake it up and put it on the cotton ball. The crying will stop in no time!
