It’s Summer. Children love to be outside when it’s warm. There’s lots of running and jumping and climbing and skipping! There’s also another thing that comes with summer and all the fun activities that kids get into…ouchies! Cuts and scrapes are just expected when they play outside. There are always a few falls during their fun playtimes outside! This all natural ouchie roller is the perfect blend to help heal those cuts and scrapes quickly! And since it’s in a roller form, it’s convenient and easy to use! These essential oils for cuts and scrapes are a perfect on-the-go staple for summer (well, really it’s perfect all year round!).
Essential Oil Recipe For Cuts And Scrapes: Ouchie Roller Blend Tutorial
Ouchie Roller Blend Supplies Needed:
- 10 ml glass roller bottle
- carrier oil (liquid coconut oil, sweet almond oil, olive oil, or grape seed oil)
- Young Living lavender essential oil
- Young Living tea tree essential oil
- Frankincense essential oil
This recipe is a blend of a carrier oil and essential oil for cuts and scrapes. Essential oils are too strong to apply directly to the skin and should be used only in a blend with an oil that is good for the skin. I chose these three essential oils for cuts and scrapes because they have antimicrobial properties and are good for the healing process.
How to make your essential oil blend for cuts and scrapes:
Grab your supplies and head to the kitchen counter. Start with your roller bottle and essential oils. Place 5 drops of each essential oil (lavender, tea tree and frankincense) into your glass roller bottle. After the essential oils are added, top your bottle off with the carrier oil of your choice. Give a gentle shake and you are ready to use your Ouchie Roller Blend.
The oils in this blend are all great for the skin. This blend is safe to use on children over 5. Do not use these essential oil for scratches if you have never used them before. In that case, you will want to do a small test application on area of skin such as your forearm to test for any allergic reactions first.
These essential oils have antibacterial, anti-infectious and anti-inflammatory properties. This blend helps heal minor cuts and scrapes quickly. Healthline also points out that “Some oils also have wound-healing properties, which may help prevent scar tissue from forming.”
This ouchie essential oil recipe is intended for topical use on minor wounds only. Just gently roll a thin layer of the blend over the affected area. Use 3-4 times a day on cut or scrape for best results. Watch for improvement and be sure to see a qualified medical professional if you have any questions or concerns.
