  Splinters…they are not just a pain in the foot!

 Kids and Splinters...yeow!

Besides being really uncomfortable or downright painful, they can become infected and cause us all kinds of trouble. 

So  last night a light bulb broke in the hall bathroom and my kids did their best clean it all up. Today it became apparent that they didn’t get all the teeny tiney pieces when my 5 year old ran in yelling that she had glass in her foot.  Ugh! Really? The littlest tiniest piece of something was stuck in one of the tiniest feet on the house. I was about as upset as she was because it was on her foot and so waiting it out really wasn't an option. 

Luckily there wasn’t much blood. If, for no other reason than my girls don’t typically deal with blood that well and also because it made it easier to access that there was  actually something IN her foot. 

I quickly applied a drop of Melrose for its disinfecting properties and then remembered hearing that Thieves blend could help push the splinter out.  I thought I would give it a try rather than try and fight to tweeze and wiggle that piece of glass out of the foot of my little princess. Then I tried really hard to NOT sing the Annie Lennox song "Walking on Broken Glass".

It didn't work. icon smile Kids and Splinters...yeow!

 

Result?

 

It worked. It really worked! We were both really, really happy. It was pretty funny because she was a little dramatic about me touching her foot and hurting her then it came right out!

I was really excited that it took so little effort to actually tweeze the piece of glass out and her foot looks great and she is runnng around like it never happened! Insert happy dance! 

I swear sometimes these oils make me feel like a better mom!

 

If I had a purple cape and a tiara… well….watch out world!
