Essential Oils Are Great for Kids' Cuts & Scrapes: Here’s Why!

Concerned about overusing antibiotics on your child’s cuts and scrapes, but also want to be sure to protect them from environmental threats? Use essential oils! 

I just add a drop of lavender essential oil, which has antibacterial properties, to the cotton part of a bandage. I always use a high-quality, pure essential oil like Doterra Therapeutic Grade. It's a great way to treat those cuts and scrapes without antibiotics - and it smells nice, too!
