Don’t let summer sores ruin your vacation!

Summer mishaps are inevitable when the kids are playing outside and the fun is at its peak. Small mishaps are part of the normal life of a child… and of his parents! A bump, a bruise, a small wound… And in these cases, having something to treat the “bobo” right away makes everyone feel better.

How to get rid of “bobos”?

  • When the child has a bump:

Beyond a huge hug and a magic kiss, nothing better than putting on repairing creams. While preparing for the departure on vacation, slip in the suitcase of the children a cream or a repairing gel, it will always be useful to you during your travels.

  • When it falls on its head.

As you can imagine, you have to be careful and assess each situation on a case-by-case basis. However, before you worry (oh, the joy of the emotional roller coaster when you’re a parent…), there are certain signs to look out for in order to determine the severity of the fall, especially if you haven’t observed it. Not sure ? Trust instincts and do not hesitate to seek medical attention to rule out serious injury.

  • When he has red buttocks.

It does not matter whether it is an infant (his skin is very sensitive in the first months) or an older child, it is possible to soothe his skin discomfort with the help of a special protective cream. The relief is often instantaneous for the skin.

  • When he gets sunburned.

Despite all the precautions deployed, visible redness and irritation appear on the child’s skin. The main thing in this specific case is: do not waste your time blaming yourself, but rather take stock of the situation. Here are the symptoms of sunburn: In case of redness of the skin without blistering, fever, chills or vomiting, it is possible to relieve the sunburn yourself by frequently applying a repair cream, and this, until the visible redness disappears.

What does a repair cream do? It soothes by hydrating and helps to restore the skin. If your child is distressed or has any of the above symptoms (blisters, fever, etc.), it is best to see a doctor for proper treatment.

Here are some essential oils recommended for sore care.

Tea tree essential oil.

Tea tree essential oil is one of the most popular essential oils. It owes its success to its remarkable antibacterial, antimicrobial and antifungal qualities. These qualities combine to fight inflammation and infection in wounds, cuts and scrapes. It can also boost the immune system and promote better circulation, making it one of the most effective essential oils for healing.

Lemon essential oil.

Lemon essential oil supports the healing of minor wounds and bruises because it stimulates circulation and eliminates germs. It also soothes the sensations of pain and offers a feeling of freshness on the skin. In addition, its stimulating aroma helps to calm anxieties caused by injuries.

Lavender essential oil.

Lavender is antibacterial and antifungal. Thanks to its ability to reduce swelling and its healing properties for the skin, lavender is a perfect remedy for sores. This essential oil is proven to support healing and relieve pain after just one use. It is anti-allergic, making this treatment useful in case of allergies. This oil also helps boost the immune system to further support the body’s healing process. What a great essential oil for healing!

Helichrysum essential oil.

Of all the oils mentioned, helichrysum essential oil is arguably the least well-known. But here is some information about this oil. It heals wounds, calms swelling, skin allergies, kills germs and relieves hematomas. This oil was used in a study to support healing after reconstructive surgeries and was found to help reduce inflammation, edema and bruising.
