Bumps and Bangs Spray

Having raised ten children, I am well acquainted with the fact that bumps and bangs, especially while raising children, are just part of life. Essential oils can be soothing, and help calm little ones. Oils like cypress, helichrysum, lavender, geranium and frankincense could always be found in my bathroom cabinet!

The following blend is easy to make, supports the body’s natural process, soothes the skin, and allows the body to do what it’s designed to do. Best of all, the calming scent is comforting to little ones. As a spray, this blend keeps you from having to disturb tender skin with unnecessary rubbing, which may cause more pain or injury.

Bumps and Bangs Spray

  • 2 oz. glass amber bottle
  • 30 drops geranium
  • 15 drops lavender
  • 10 drops cypress
  • 5 drops helichrysum*
  • 5 drops frankincense*
  • 2 tsp. high proof grain alcohol (leave this out if applying to broken or scraped skin) purified water (fill the rest of the way)

* Both frankincense and helichrysum are two of the more expensive oils. If you don’t have these on hand right away, don’t worry—the other oils in this recipe are very helpful all on their own. However, as time and finances permit, I highly recommend having both of these oils in your stash, as they are both helpful for a number of situations.
