DIY Neosporin Spray

Homemade Neosporin Spray

It's inevitable with three kids that someone is going to scrape their knees and elbows on the concrete!! When I go to play doctor mom, I want to use something safe AND effective. So I made my very own homemade neosporin spray.

First, let's explore what is in the go-to product.

Drug store neosporin is made with petroleum jelly along with three antibiotics. 

Why is this so bad? The petroleum jelly for one. What exactly is petroleum jelly?
Well it is Petroleum , the crude oil waste from oil rigs that is distilled and sold to the public for uses in cosmetics and healing creams. 

That is just disgusting to me!! We are putting fossil fuels on our bodies every time we get a cut or scrape! What about in diaper creams? Don't even get me started!!

What about the antibiotic neomycine? Here is an article written by a medicine doctor on why he does not like neosporin. That should be enough right there to make you go throw that tube in the trash!!

Ok, so now you have no boo-boo cream, what do you do??

Well you can just wash it in warm soapy water and let nature take its course, or you can apply a little of my homemade neosporin spray.

Here is what you will need:

A small spray bottle (this recipe fills 10ml bottle)

10 drops of Frankincense Essential Oil
10 drops Tea Tree Oil
10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
Witch Hazel to top it off

All these ingredients are antibacterial, antiseptic and have amazing healing properties to them. 
Shake gently before using and spray lightly onto the effected area. Let it dry.
You may or may not choose to apply a band-aide now, that is up to you.

This works just as well as any over the counter stuff, but is way better for you!!
