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?
Uh, no. EWG’s Skin Deep site sited many ingredients that are on my “NO WAY” list. Here are a few:
PROPYLPARABEN (EWG score: 10!)
PETROLEUM BASED INGREDIENTS
So, I started making my own boo boo stick. With my knowledge of essential oils and decided to use healing oils: frankincense, lavender and orange. I then used grapeseed oil (absorbs into the skin quickly), organic coconut oil (anti-inflammatory and healing 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 bruises, and on blemishes. And- it lasts a long time! A little bit goes a long way.
