Wanting to keep things natural and non-toxic when it comes to your kids is easier said than done. I grew up with my mother popping Tea tree directly onto scrapes and scratches, and over the years on my motherhood journey, I have found some more refined options.
This recipe uses a blend of Lavender, Frankincense and Melaleuca (Tea Tree) to take care of any light scrapes or scratches.
Lavender is known for its calming and relaxing qualities and soothes irritated skin.
Frankincense is one of the most prized essential oils and was used to soothe the skin and can reduce the appearance of blemishes.
Melaleuca (Tea Tree)
Tea Tree is known for its cleansing and rejuvenating properties which help to soothe and heal occasional skin irritations.
Before you get started, it is important to remember essential oils are very potent and only one drop is required topically for children.
