As a mum of 3 small (ish) children I find that I can never be too prepared. James I have to admit is the most accident prone out of the 3 and has had us rushing to A & E twice already in his 3 and a bit years, Callum and Nathan so far (and I’m touching wood as I type) haven’t had us up there yet.
All parents should have first aid kits at home in my opinion, we certainly have and we have one in the car too, they are both full of essential bits, plasters, bandages and other bits and pieces that we may or may not need. Recently I was asked to review Nelsons Arnicare Kids Stick and Nelsons Tea Tree Natural First Aid Antiseptic Cream. I think that they both would make excellent additions to any First Aid kit.
The Nelsons Arnicare, Arnica Kids Stick is a fun, fast-absorbing formulation and is specially formulated for the delicate skin of children, it also helps to keep it soft and supple. The brightly coloured balm simply glides on, is non-greasy and fuss-free. Arnica is used to heal bruises and ease tender spots. You can use the balm on unbroken skin. The balm comes in a pocket-sized container and is paraben-free, Nelsons Arnicare Arnica Kids Stick would also make a excellent handbag essential, it is suitable for children aged 3 years and over. It has a RRP of £5.35 for 7g.
The Nelsons Tea Tree Natural First Aid Antiseptic Cream is a soothing cream using the finest, purest tea tree oil from Australia. It can be used on cuts and grazes to help keep them clean and stop infection before they start. The cream is available to buy in a 30g tube with an RRP of £4.85.
These two will definitely be added to our first aid kits – you never know when you may need them, especially when you have young children about or ones that are as accident prone as my little James.
