Homemade Antiseptic Skin Spray

Everybody gets boo-boos, right? 
Minor cuts, scratches, scrapes, bug bites, sunburn . . . 
 DD#1 with a sunburn ~
My personal favorite cure-all is my homemade Thieves Oil and all the wonderful uses there are for it, but some people simply do not like that strong smell. (I happen to love it and would wear it as a perfume if I could! :-D )

So, for my family and friends who prefer something that is very effective, quickly relieves that pain or sting and stops those germs in their tracks, I also have on-hand a wonderful antiseptic skin spray that is just as strong, just not as strong smelling.

Another easy-peasy recipe:
 This is all you need ~ 
You will need:

~a clean spray/mist bottle (approx. 4 oz. size for this recipe)
~10 drops tea tree essential oil
~10 drops eucalyptus essential oil

~7 drops lavender essential oil
~4 drops frankincense essential oil
~3-4 oz. of distilled water
~1/2 oz. whiskey or vodka


1) add all essential oils to your spray/mist bottle
2) add distilled water
3) add whiskey/vodka
4) shake to blend

To Use:

1) Shake well before using to blend the oils
2) spray liberally onto boo-boo
3) if necessary ~ cover boo-boo with a band-aide. 
4) reapply as needed

**NOTE** If you are concerned about the alcohol, remember that MOST common cough syrups (also see my Medicinal Hot Toddy recipe) and antiseptic meds contain alcohol. It is a time-tested germ killer. 

As bug and outdoor activity seasons approach, be sure to let me know how you like this product. Your comments are always welcome.
