Apart from pleasant and beautiful moments on excursions, staying in nature or mountains, we can easily slip into a cave, a gap between rocks, among bushes, or some other strange place full of bugs and insects. Minor scratches, stabs, injuries can be cured using essential oils. It’s always advisable to have a bottle of essential oil in your bag or backpack,
Lavender essential oil is the first choice for immediate and rapid action. The so-called “true lavender” (Lat. Lavandula officinalis) is a salvation you can always count on. It is applied directly, quickly and easily to the endangered site without fear of irritation even in children. Gently spray a drop or two of lavender oil on the wound. You will disinfect the bruise (injury), stop the bleeding, reduce the pain, promote skin regeneration and scarring. It is advisable to have a lavender bottle especially in the natural environment.
Stings mosquitoes or ants
Prepare in advance to fully enjoy the plant’s coexistence and the fresh air without insects that gladly land on humans and food. Add a total of 10 drops of lemon, lavender, eucalyptus and geranium essential oils (or most of the listed oils) to 10 ml of almond (fast absorbing) vegetable oil. Before going out, apply this blend to skin and body parts that are not covered. If you have not applied any protection to exposed areas of the skin and you are still bitten by a mosquito or insect, apply the following mixture to the wound: one to two drops of lavender or a mixture of 10 ml of gentle grass base oil with a total of 10 drops of Tea Tree and Roman essential oil chamomile.
Insect poisonous insects and insects
Poisonous insects are those that have a sting containing a poison bag. This group includes: wasps, bees, scorpions and red ants among other poisonous insects. When stabbing wasps into one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, add one drop of lavender or tea tree tea (essential oils will prevent infection, apple cider vinegar will neutralize poison). Be careful because wasps can stab a person several times. Stinging a bee can be more complicated as the bee leaves poisonous sting in the skin. Coat the stitches with a mixture of one teaspoon of baking soda and one teaspoon of water and one drop of Roman chamomile or lavender.
Help with cuts and scratches
Clean the area where the skin is scratched or cut due to a minor accident, first with wet cotton wool or plain water. Directly cut lightly with real lavender or a mixture of 10 ml of base oil with a total of 6 drops of lavender oil or roman chamomile. To prevent further infection, cover the area with a bandage or patch. For younger children, use fewer ether drops. Children under 2 years: add one drop of essential oil to 10 ml of base oil. Children 2 to 7 years: Add 3 drops of essential oil to 10 ml of base oil. For ages 7 and older: Add 4 drops of essential oil to 10 ml of base oil.
Sprains and bruises on the body

When the towel is warmed up, repeat the process. Repeat several times. To prevent bruising, then coat the impact site with 10 ml of calofil (tan) oil to which you have added 10 drops of immortelle.
