I jumped at the chance to review some Nelsons first aid products. My four year old son is so accident prone he’s got typical boys legs with cuts, bruises, scratches and grazes. He comes home most days with another on he’s leg to add to he’s collection.
Well the items came at the right time as he came home from school with a graze on he’s knee, as per usual he wouldn’t let the teachers treat or clean the graze. I’ve always had a huge problem with plasters, cream and lotions and potions to treat him when he’s fallen over and hurt something. He usually cry’s saying it stings or hurts when I’ve tried applying before.
The first product was Nelsons tea tree cream. Nelsons Tea Tree cream is a soothing skin cream prepared using the finest, purest tea tree oil from Australia. Tea tree oil has many uses but is best known for its excellent antiseptic properties, because it’s a natural antiseptic and you can use it for mostly anything. Cuts, grazes spots, skin irritations, the list goes on.
My first initial reaction was it smelt lovely, it was nice and refreshing. When I applied it to the graze it absorbed quickly which is great as the last thing you want to be doing is poking and rubbing cream in. Raiden said it wasn’t stingy and no tears or moans! He even asked for the cream on the next day- RESULT!
The second product was Nelsons arnica kids stick. Lightly tinted green and specially formulated for children's delicate skin, its fun, pocket sized and easy to use. No mess and no fuss. Arnica has been recognised for its invaluable natural properties since the 16th century. An effective bruise treatment with natural anti-inflammatory properties it’s slightly scented and again easy to use. Raiden calls this the magic stick that makes he’s legs better, he loves popping it on himself.
After three years of battling with him to treat him with first aid products I can’t believe the change in him with these few products. Defiantly worthwhile to have in your medicine cupboard. Thumbs up from me!
