This is the Best Kid Tested DIY Owie Spray I've found! With this owie blend recipe, your little one will be on the mend in no time!
This DIY Owie Spray has a strange way of making me feel like a hero to my kids.
As a parent, few things are worse than seeing your little one hurt.
Without exception, I would always rather be the one in pain. I would take major pain if it would prevent them from even a minor injury. (I'm pretty sure most every Mom out there would say the same.)
Lucky for me, I would only consider one of my three children to be accident prone.
He has done everything from fall head first from a top bunk onto a hardwood floor to gash his head on rocks in the pool.
When he was younger, he would send me into mom panic mode with injuries on a near-weekly basis.
Of course, kids are kids, and all of them get minor cuts, scrapes, and on a fairly regular basis. (Especially this summer, which we are spending in the mountains.)
I always keep this wound care owie spray on hand, because it is the quickest and easiest way I have found to ease pain and help facilitate healing.
I've found that by making a big deal when they are small that is their "magical" owie spray with essential oils, it also has a calming effect.
I'm sure the lavender helps a bit, but I also think that it works to stop the tears because they believe that it is going to take the pain away. (Skye started calling it "Magic Juice" when she was three.)
Let's face it, a lot of time when little ones are crying after minor injury it is more about emotions than pain and Mom's biggest job is to love them and distract them on to something else. This DIY Owie Spray has done the trick with all three of my kids.
