Essential oils are wonderful helpers for skin healing.
My friend recently came to see me because her sweet little boy’s fingertips were all cracked and red from eczema. The winter weather was causing his sensitive skin to chap. Determined to avoid harsh chemicals, she asked if I could suggest an alternative to over-the-counter creams.
I quickly whipped up a gentle blend and poured it into a (spill proof!) roll-on bottle. Little Gaspare was able to apply the oil himself, and he was so excited. Mom also used this blend on his diaper rash and it disappeared in 24 hours – amazing!
Essential Oils Blend for Skin Healing (Kid Safe)
Ingredients and Supplies
- 4 drops lavender
- 2 drops frankincense
- 10 ml jojoba oil
- 1 10ml roller bottle (this set includes a funnel and dropper for easy blending)
Fill the roller bottle with jojoba, then add the essential oils on top. Shake for a good 15 seconds. Apply to irritated skin every few hours, as needed. Safe for kiddos 3 and up.
**Note about Essential Oils: Be sure you only use organic and therapeutic grade essential oils and carrier oils, like the ones I’ve linked to, in the recipe above. Otherwise, the oils have no skin healing properties, and can do more harm than good.
I hope this brings comfort to your little ones. Leave a comment and share your experience!
