When my daughter was little she would sit beside me and play quietly while I made dinner. Usually on the floor near my feet. Life was easy. Then I had a little boy. He was definitely more adventurous than she and I would have to strap him in a seat with play doh (or something similar) to make dinner. And then came my third baby, another boy, my wild child! This has led, inescapably, to more owies than this mother knew was possible. I really think that little boys need to come with a warning label: Caution. Will cause sleepless nights, worry lines, and gray hair.
Anyhow, our most recent trip to Challis, Idaho (this town is beautiful and if you get a chance to visit, the scenery alone is worth it!) my little monster roughed up his knee, not once, not twice, but THREE times! Each time he tore through the existing bandage and caused more damage.
I have never felt more thankful for having supplies to help on hand. As I held him in my lap I was able to apply Balance, just one drop, to his palms, we rubbed his hands together, then he cupped them over his nose to inhale. Followed by rubbing his palms on the back of his neck. This helped to promote feelings of calmness, tranquility, and balance. This blend also helps to promote relief of feeling of anxiousness.
Once he was calm and his tears were slowing, I applied Helichrysum, right over the affected area on his knee, to support a cessation of bleeding. Once that was achieved, I used diluted On Guard to help support immunity from any germs that may have found their way into his body (learn more about dilution ratios here). Then we finished it up with a small application of Correct X.
This is a wonderful ointment of Frankincense, Helichrysum, Melaleuca, Cedarwood, and Lavender in a non-petroleum, preservative free, all-natural ointment that soothes the skin. Correct X helps to keep the area of concern clean and moisturized while promoting healthy skin. After we used the Correct X, we topped it off with a new band-aid, some new pants, and lots of love and hugs.
A few minutes later and he was back to his wild ways with his mother pondering how she was ever going to survive his childhood. With bounty. That’s how.
This is also why every mother needs to have owie support with essential oils in her arsenal.
