My essential oil loving friends want to know the recipes for the rollers in my adorable little emergency kit, so here they are: and check out this cute bag!
I’m kind of a grab-and-go park mom in the summer. I have a backpack that I throw some snacks and water bottles into. My little emergency kit stays in there, and I add towels or sidewalk chalk, or whatever else applies to the place we are visiting.
This little emergency kit has come in VERY handy. Here’s what’s in it:
On Guard Hand Sanitizing Spray & Wipes
I don’t like hand sanitizer because I don’t like the ingredients in hand sanitizer. I use On Guard sanitizing spray and wipes because they clean surfaces and tiny hands in a gentle, natural way. I keep these on me just in case, but I’m a big fan of letting kids get dirty and build up their microbiomes. If they pick up slugs or drop something on a bathroom floor – it’s On Guard for the win, though.
TerraShield Bug Repellent
We like to get out into nature. TerraShield is a completely natural bug repellent that is so safe for kids and pets, you can spray it right on them (and I do). It blends essential oils known for deterring all kinds of pests: Lemongrass, Thyme, Cedarwood, Geranium, and Peppermint in a Sesame Seed oil base. I went camping and slept in a tent with no door (that’s another story) and got zero bug bites … thanks to TerraShield!
Every first aid kit needs bandaids, and I am known for always having bandaids. I can’t even tell you how many scraped knees I have patched up already. Be the mom with the bandaids – you’ll come in handy at the park.
I use Correct-X on any owie, and before I put a bandaid on anyone. Correct-X is a natural version of your popular antibiotic ointment, but with no petroleum or ingredients I don’t like. Plus it has the benefit of all of those skin-nourishing essential oils. Correct-X helps scraped knees heal beautifully!
Sunburns, bee stings, bug bites, heightened emotions – I find Lavender is super helpful to have. This roller is diluted so everyone can use it.
Known as the Digestive blend, this roller will come in handy when you have any kind of gastro issue.
Tea Tree Roller
Tea Tree is antiseptic, antibacterial, and antifungal. I use it the most when we are hanging out at the pool, and it gets rolled on the bottoms of feet and on toenails, to avoid picking anything up. If I need to clean a cut or a scrape, I use Tea Tree because it doesn’t feel hot on the skin like On Guard can.
Sore muscles after lots of playtime are soothed by the Rescuer roller, as are growing pains, sore feet, and little headaches. This roller is a blend of Copaiba, Lavender, Spearmint, and Zanthoxylum – and it is great on tired little legs from all that adventuring.
Owie Spray / Skincare Roller
This might be my best essential oil blend EVER. The ability of these oils to work synergistically to support healthy, healing skin is incredible. I like my Owie blend in a spray so I’m not rolling it over broken skin. If you only have roller bottles I would roll the blend onto clean fingers and apply from there.
Here’s the recipe for a 10mL bottle:
- 10 drops Frankincense (skin support)
- 5 drops Lavender (soothing, calming to skin)
- 5 drops Tea Tree (antiseptic, great cleanser)
- 5 drops Helichrysum (slows bleeding, supports tissue repair)
- Top with carrier oil of your choice
Bug Bite Roller
It doesn’t happen often, but sometimes bug bites or bee stings happen and I love this blend for soothing sore, itchy skin. I made this one in a 5mL bottle because I don’t use a lot of it, but I’m sure happy I have it when I need it! Look at that beautiful blue colour!
Here’s the recipe for a 5mL bottle:
- 5 drops Lavender (soothes agitated skin)
- 5 drops Tea Tree (antiseptic and cleansing)
- 5 drops Peppermint (cools hot skin down, takes the sting out)
- 2 drops doTERRA Purify blend (very cleansing to skin)
- 1 drop Blue Tansy (soothing, anti-inflammatory)
The mini first aid kit bags fit everything perfectly and you can find a link to them right here on Amazon. They come as a pack of four, so I suggest making a kit for a friend, or hosting an essential oil Make and Take with them.
