The Boo Boo Stick is a Kid Favorite
During my quest of ridding my home of toxic ingredients, one of the last items I had lying around was Neosporin. I've always used it. My mom used it. It's okay then, right?
EWG's Skin Deep site sited many ingredients that are on my "NO WAY" list. Here are a few:
So, I started making my own boo boo stick. With my knowledge of essential oils and decided to use essential oils with certain positive properties: frankincense, lavender and orange. I then used grapeseed oil (absorbs into the skin quickly), organic coconut oil (great boo boo helping properties), and organic beeswax (emollient and great for the skin).
Voila! MamaSuds Boo Boo Stick! My kids love it and ask for it for every itch they have or boo boo they find (invisible or otherwise).
I've used it as a lip balm, on wounds, slivers, on bruises, and on blemishes..... and on my cuticles!
And- it lasts a long time! A little bit goes a long way.
