As the mother of a young child, I am constantly in need of some kind of healing cream that possesses some supreme germ fighting power. I've noticed that I don't have very many alternatives for Neosporin, which is effective, but doesn't rest my nerves the way a natural substitute does. There's just something about knowing exactly what I'm applying on my child that calms my nerves.
When in search for the perfect combination of oils to make this cream I decided to start off with Tea Tree because it's notorious for being a powerful antiseptic in addition to having anti-infectious, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and tissue regenerative properties. Geranium softens up the smell of the tea tree while contributing with its antiseptic and antibacterial properties. It can also help relieve stress as it also contains a mild sedative, this comes in handy with a screaming child that wants Mom to put medicine on his oowie. Frankincense gives a perfect musky balance as a classic antiseptic, anti-infectious and anti-inflammatory. It also helps relax newly scarred individuals with its calming sedating properties as well.
Lavender serves as an extra antiseptic that helps protect from infection and helps the skin regenerate along with Rosehip Seed Oil making this the perfect blend to replace your Neosporin with things you actually recognize by name.
