I wanted to share this amazing DIY Essential Oil spray so you could add it to your medicine cabinet. It will come in handy when unexpected injuries happen, leaving you in a pinch for a quick fix. The first I heard of Owie Spray (Frankincense, Lavender, and Melaleuca essential oils) was at a conference I attended where an amazing testimonial to the oils was presented when her son fell of his bike down a steep gravel hill. Below is the story!
“Her young son was out riding his bike and fell while going downhill on a gravelly road. He was pretty torn up as you can see from the photos and after a trip to the ER was told that there could be possible surgery to clean out the gravel.
Mom came to the rescue with dōTERRA essential oils, specifically the “Owie Spray”. This mom keeps a bottle of ‘Owie Spray’ (recipe below) to use for any kinds of cuts, scrapes, bumps and bruises. Her kids will run to use it whenever needed. The only treatment that he received after the ER was multiple applications of this spray – about 3 – 4 times per day. This little guy was not on any pain medication either. Look at the progression below from day 1 through the final photo at day 7. The photos show the healing process in order from left to right. Most notable are the last three pictures on the right–they are day 4, day 6, and day 7 respectively. Pretty Incredible, right? It seems hard to believe, but this is an amazing, true example of the incredible growth that comes with the aid of dōTERRA essential oils.
Owie Spray Recipe!
In a 2oz glass bottle (oils are best used in glass) add 10-20 drops of each:
- Frankincense– the miracle oil- perfect for anti inflammatory and trauma
- Lavender– gentle enough for kids and sensitive skin issues like burns, cuts, or abrasions, also its calming properties are great to help everyone keep calm at a time of panic and pain
- Melaleuca– documented to kill many bacteria, viruses, and fungi on contact so its excellent for cuts, wounds, burns, and anywhere that bacteria might be found
Fill the spray bottle the rest of the way with dōTERRA’s Fractionated coconut oil. (Coconut oil is an all-natural carrier oil that readily absorbs into the skin making it an ideal oil for topical therapies. Its feather-light emollient effect provides a soothing barrier without clogging pores and is excellent for dry or troubles skin. It leaves skin feeling silky smooth, not greasy like other vegetable carrier oils. It is completely soluble with all essential oils and is colorless, odorless, and will not stain or go rancid. For topical use.
