This is a recipe I came up with and it works fantastically well. My husband received a very bad dog bite that severed a tendon in his arm. It was not stitched closed, as they were going to do surgery to repair the tendon. When he went back to the doctor, they decided surgery was not necessary and let the wound heal with no further medical care but what I administered at home. It has healed with almost no scarring at all. Picture at bottom. WARNING: Graphic image.

You Will Need:

Spray bottle

Distilled water

Lavender essential oil

Peppermint essential oil

Cedarwood essential oil (optional)

Geranium essential oil (optional)


Add 15-20 drops of lavender essential oil to the spray bottle (for pain, to disinfect, to prevent scarring & to heal the skin) and 5-10 drops of peppermint essential oil (for the pain). If you like, you can add 3-5 drops of cedarwood essential oil and 5 drops of geranium essential oil (both to tone, tighten and heal the skin). Fill the spray bottle about halfway to 3/4 of the way with the distilled water (depending how big the bottle is). Shake well. Spray directly on to the wound once the bleeding has stopped. Either pat or allow to air dry. Continue to spray the wound with the spray when the dressing is changed or at least twice a day, shaking well before each use. It will disinfect the wound, as well as promote healing and prevent scarring.

NOTES: This spray can also be used as a natural flea spray on dogs (do not use essential oils on your cats), as a body mist, a hair refresher, to fight allergens, insect repellent for some bugs and as an aromatherapy spray.
