On Saturday we explored a lovely wildlife refuge near our home. My 3-year-old daughter was running her hand along a wooden fence. I asked her to stop so she wouldn't get slivers and she listened. What a surprise when I looked at her palm during church the next day and saw a great big sliver and several tiny ones. She hadn't been aware of it, even though it was red and irritated. I put lavender on it because that's what I had in my bag. When we got home I pulled out the big one (she was so brave!) and put melaleuca and Purify on it and the other tiny specks. The redness and irritation started to go down fairly soon. I applied the oils three times yesterday. This morning I checked her hand when she woke up and it is almost completely healed. Happy girl and happy mommy.
