Sometimes our little ones get a boo boo, and the fear from their injury is far greater than the boo boo itself. For these times when your little precious one is crying hard but the boo boo is minor, have him/her help you make this easy recipe. It gets them involved in learning first aid, helps take their mind off the boo boo, and the lavender blend helps calm them and kill a few germs. Note: This recipe isn’t intended for serious cuts/scrapes or injuries.
Depending on the age and abilities of your little one, have him/her help you by saturating a cotton ball with witch hazel. Then, apply one drop of lavender to the saturated cotton ball. Have your little one smell the “boo boo juice.” Since lavender helps bring calm, the aroma can be soothing. Then, apply the boo boo juice to the minor cut/scrape or allow your little one to take charge and do it. Apply a band aid if necessary.
If you prefer, you can create a pre-blended bottle of boo-boo juice to have ready for those minor cuts and scrapes. Add 1 ounce of witch hazel to a clean glass bottle. Then, add 5-6 drops of lavender. Be sure to shake well prior to each use. I prefered to use the directions above when my daughter got little cuts and scrapes, as the process of “making” the boo boo juice really helped take her mind off of her injury.
