4 Essential Oils for Healing Bumps and Boo-Boos

As a mom, I understand the tug on the heart whenever your child cries from a bump or bruise. You want to make it all better!

Not only do essential oils have constituents that support natural healing properties, but they’re also sustainable and eco-friendly. So, if you’re looking for a natural way to help your little one feel better, reach for Simply Earth’s Bumps and Boo-Boos Essential Oil Blend!

What I Love About the Bumps & Boo-Boos Blend

Hey, Katie here. I’m a certified aromatherapist and mom of two little girls and a little boy. Nothing makes my heart cringe, like when my kids cry in pain. As kids develop motor skills and go on adventures, bumps and boo-boos are inevitable. 

I love that I can use the Bumps and Boo-Boos Essential Oil Blend to support my children’s healing process with natural ingredients that have been around for hundreds of years. There’s something beautiful about realizing a mother used similar herbs or blends like this 300 years ago to help soothe her own child’s pain. These essential oils for healing are the way to go.

Bumps and Boo-Boos Essential Oil Blend helps me feel confident I can support my children’s wellness. With my girls’ little bumps and scrapes, all they need is a hug, kiss, this blend, and of course, a unicorn band-aid.

What’s In Bumps and Boo-Boos Blend?

Tea Tree Essential Oil

Tea Tree Essential Oil exhibits strong antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, according to this study1 which helps soothe cuts and scrapes or reduce the appearance of breakouts.

Lemon Essential Oil

As per this study2, Lemon Essential Oil contains natural antimicrobial and antioxidant agents, which means it can also support the healing of minor scrapes and bruising. Its uplifting aroma also helps soothe the anxiety that accompanies getting injured.

Lavender Essential Oil

A recent study3 suggests a potential therapeutic benefit of Lavender Essential Oil to support wound healing. Together with its pleasant and soothing aroma, it is a perfect addition to the Bumps & Boo-Boos Essential Oil Blend to support your body’s natural healing process.

Helichrysum Essential Oil

Of all the essential oils that appear in the Bumps & Boo-Boos Essential Oil Blend, Helichrysum Essential Oil is likely the least well-known. But it has significant wound-repairing effects as per this study4, making it an invaluable addition to this blend.
