The days before boo boo stick
We can't live without boo boo sticks in the house......
This oily journey took off in summer of 2016, when Chloe came home from daycare with tons of chigger bites at the panty line area. Of course, I freaked out!!
We had many tubes and jars of bug bite oinment at home before, but none of them worked on chigger bites. It was so itchy that Chloe would scratch till bleed.
I had already start to make balm and soaps then, and there came another challege from my kids: what can i make that can be used as a bug repellent PLUS an salve that will relief the itch, redness, swollen bumps, and to recover the little boo boos faster??
From there, I researched, tested, and learned so much about Chinese herbs, western apothecary, making infused herbs, oils, essential oils... I build on the basic ideas of making salves and balms with the new knowledge, and most importantly, making a product that is 100% natural, healthy and safe for my family.
There are many success stories I can share with you from Day 1. Just most recently, it helped Mason's teacher's arm from a minor burn to recovery (see picture). As of today, Boo Boo Stick remains a top seller at Chloemason's online shop and booth sales. I highly recommend it because my family can't live without it.
