Festival season is upon us once again. If you’re planning to dig out your wellies and dust off your tent for some fun in a field, make sure you pack the ultimate first aid multi-tasker!
Insect Bites and Stings
Going back to nature and partying in the great outdoors can be fun but pesky insects can rock up to ruin the party.
Take the sting and itch out of insect bites by applying directly to the skin or for more sensitive skin, add a few drops to carrier oil and apply.
If the singing has taken its toll and you can feel the tingle of a sore throat coming on, mix 2-3 drops into a glass of warm water, and gargle with it to help fight infection and soothe inflammation, whilst helping to ease the pain.
After your friends see how useful your trusty bottle of tea tree is you might struggle to keep hold of it but keep it safe for when you return as it will be great to relax your body when you’re all danced out.
The anti-inflammatory properties can help soothe sore muscles.
Add 10 drops, along with a large handful of Epsom salts, to a warm bath and soak for 30 minutes
Keeping the tent clean
Fill a spray bottle with 15-20 drops of tea tree oil and the rest of the bottle with water. Use this to keep your tent spic and span and smelling fresh.
If you’ve been lucky with the weather but haven’t kept your sun protection topped up, add a few drops of tea tree oil to coconut oil or aloe vera gel to soothe and calm sunburn.
Spots and Blemishes
You’ve planned your festival fashion perfectly but a dread spot arrives to ruin your flawless make-up?
Fear not, tea tree oil is a natural antibacterial that can improve the appearance of skin blemishes.
Just dab onto the affected area with a clean cotton bud.
Cuts and Grazes
Overenthusiastic dancing resulted in a tumble?
Don’t worry! A natural, antibacterial essential oil, it is safe to use on open cuts. It even has a slightly anaesthetic effect!
