2 Homemade First Aid Recipes: Ointment and Spray | www.homemademommy.net

Want an amazing homemade recipe for a first aid ointment and a first aid spray? I’ve got two homemade first aid recipes for you right here! And the first aid ointment is really truly an ointment not a cream!

When selecting a natural alternative for a first aid ointment and spray, please be mindful of the type of injury and how it occurred. A wound can encompass muscle damage, nerve damage, ligament damage, inflammation, infection and even emotional bruising! Do not forget the emotional part! In addition to using a homemade first aid ointment or spray, I always add an emotional oil to the mix…usually Valor or Peace & Calming. Those two are great for calming my ‘patient’ down (including myself)!

According to my 6th edition Essential Oils Desk Reference guide, here is a list of single essential oils and essential oil blends which would be great options for cuts, scrapes, and wounds:

Essential Oil Singles for Cuts, Scrapes, and Wounds

  • Lavender
  • Melalueca Alternifolia
  • Helichrysum
  • Rosemary
  • Eucalyptus Globulus
  • Dorado Azul
  • Cypress
  • Wintergreen
  • Thyme
  • Oregano
  • German Chamomile
  • Mountain Savory
  • Sacred Frankincense
  • Frankincense
  • Myrrh
  • Spikenard
  • Eucalyptus Blue

Essential Oil Blends for Cuts, Scrapes, and Wounds

  • Melrose
  • The Gift
  • 3 Wise Men
  • Aroma Siez
  • Aroma Life
  • Purification
  • Trauma Life
  • Peace & Calming
  • R.C.
  • RutaVala
  • RutaVala Roll-On
  • Stress Away Roll-On
  • Tranquil Roll-On

As you can see many oils can assist in a first aid situation when you need them! So please use what you have. However, for the purposes of my homemade first aid recipe post, I am keeping it basic and simple and using just a selected few from above that have worked for me and my family quite well. I am going to give you two options: a homemade first aid ointment (a true ointment too!) and a homemade first aid spray. So you can choose whichever you would like!

Homemade First Aid Ointment Recipe

This recipe is amazing because it is truly an ‘ointment’!

Ingredients

Directions

Bring a small sauce pot with 1 inch of water to a simmer. Place 4 tablespoons or 2 ounce of Rose or Animal Scents Ointment in a glass mason jar or glass measuring cup. Place the glass jar or measuring cup into the simmering water. Allow the Rose or Animal Scents Ointment to slowly melt to a liquid state.

Meanwhile, add the essential oils to a 2 ounce glass jar.

When the Rose or Animal Scents Ointment is melted, pour into the 2 ounce glass jar with the essential oils. Swish to combine. Let sit uncovered at room temperature until it solidifies, about 1 hour.

Use as needed on cuts, scrapes, and wounds. The oils will help with bleeding and to clean the cut, scrape, or wound.

Homemade First Aid Spray Recipe

Ingredients

Directions

Add salt to an 4 oz glass spray bottle. Drop in the essential oils and allow the salt to absorb them. Fill the bottle with distilled water. Shake well.

Spray on cuts, scrapes, and wounds before applying a bandage. Repeat 2-3 times a day. The above first aid ointment can be applied as well to speed healing and prevent scarring.

    For the spray, I really find using alcohol or witch hazel works better than using salt to disperse the EOs. I made a couple sprays with the salt as suggested in the Thieves germ spray recipe you had, and the salt clogs the sprayer.

    I shake it every time to disperse it, still clogs. I haven’t had any issues with other sprays with alcohol or witch hazel though.

  2. Kathy says:

    Are there alternatives to the ointments you suggest as a base? I try not to use animal products and I don’t like what I hear about conditions on the mink farms.

  3. carrie says:

    Hi!
    I’m bummed as the Animal Scents seems to be available only as a part of the Animal Care collections.

    Not finding Rose Ointment on the website – perhaps you make that also?
