Honey and essential oils heal a carpet burn
Eeugh. Wasn’t quite sure how to deal with it, since it was stinging and painful to the touch, plus she may have picked up dirt from the carpet.
Googled carpet burns and came up with honey and essential oils – who’da thunk it?
So off to Google and I found a Young Living Essential oil reference to using honey, lavender and thyme as a compress to heal a carpet burn.
I cleaned the wound as best I could with pure water, dabbed it dry and then created a mix of honey, 6 or so drops of lavender and 3 drops of Thyme on a large bandaid (the biggest one I had).
Callie wore the bandaid for about 4 hours and took it off – the redness had completely gone!
The scratch took a while longer to heal, but no infection and no discomfort.
The Young Living Essential Oils continue to amaze me with their many uses.
So how did the honey and essential oils help?
This from Natural News.
“Raw honey is exceptionally effective internally against bacteria and parasites. Plus, raw honey contains natural antibiotics, which help kill microbes directly. Raw honey, when applied topically, speeds the healing of tissues damaged by infection and/or trauma. It contains vitamins, minerals and enzymes, as well as sugars, all of which aid in the healing of wounds.”
Wow. I am very impressed.
The Lavender essential oil helped this kind of injury by acting as an analgesic (pain-killer) and soothes minor burns.
I usually travel with a small bottle of lavender essential oil in case the girls get bumps or scratches.
The Thyme essential oil contains thymol which has germ-killing properties (it’s often used in mouthwash, for example). The herb is also very nice to cook with.

Essential Oils are natures bounty from the Earth and as such offer us natural vibrational healing
Physical Healing or Symptom Relief Essential oils can help us with physical issues in the body because therapeutic grade oils are quickly absorbed, inhaled and sometimes taken internally as appropriate.
Emotional Release and Balance They can also help shift energy in the body and help us feel better if we have an emotional issue or ‘heavy’ emotions.
The Spiritual Journey and Meditation Essential oils are also ‘spiritual oils’ and many of them can help balance our energy bodies as well as intensify the meditation experience.
