Today, DH has spent the majority of the time in bed. Probably for the best as he hasn't been getting a lot of sleep lately and in so much pain. Since the incision is oozing (I know sounds gross) and red, I made up a healing oil to rub around it, not on it. Hopefully that will help the redness and speed some of the healing. I did make a salve/ointment today to use as it heals a little bit more to fight infection.
I did a simple recipe that is Jojoba Oil and Beeswax combined with Essential Oils. I made mine a little greasier than normal but I wanted something softer. Most of the time you would use a 3 (oil) to 1 (beeswax) base and then add your EO's and this time I did a 2 to 1 combo. My EO's were Lavender, Sandalwood, Tea Tree, Frankincense, Myrrh and Patchouli which are all anti bacterial type of oils. I actually like the scent and it doesn't smell like medicine. I'll let you know how it goes on DH but I used it on a scrape on my arm and it is less red than this morning.
Now that the weekend has come to an end, I hope everyone is now relaxed and refreshed. I know for most of you it is back to work tomorrow so have a great week.
