My son was born 5 weeks early. He’s my first and only child. So when he was born, I was very paranoid about everything. I washed my hands every chance I could, thinking he might get infected with something.
That was the moment I realized skin does not only carry bacteria, but that it really WAS a very important part of our body. It was the protective barrier that was responsible for many functions of our body, including the ability to keep us safe from foreign pathogens.
What’s in your first aid kit?
As a mom, I like being as prepared as I could possibly be, especially in case my son gets hurt. So one of the many things I never leave home without is a first aid kit.
5 year old boys are not meant to sit still and “play nicely,” are they? In fact, it seems as though mine actually gets hurt every other day. Scraped knees, scratches, and bruises seem to be a normal thing. Yet, I still always get paranoid that someday it may not be as easy as washing the dirt away.
Whenever my son had a scraped knee or scratch, I would always be ready with a Neosporin foam wash to reduce infection then follow it with an antibiotic ointment to improve its healing time. If necessary, I bandaged it to keep all the ointment in place.
Then I heard about a fantastic new product called thaumaturgic bio mist, which I absolutely LOVE! The weird thing about it is that it doesn’t actually tell you it’s actually a multi-purpose solution.
I was at a friend’s house, visiting as our sons went round and round their backyard, playing and running. We were all supposed to go into their pool so I had not thought about changing him out of his flip flops just yet. After a while, I hear a loud screaming cry. I rush out and he had fall on his hands and knees after tripping over his flip flops.
What you do when your son scrapes his knees
Being the panicky mother that I am, I rushed over to him, picked him up, and started hugging him to calm him down. I then went inside the house and was about to grab my little first aid kit when my friend handed me a spray bottle.
“Here, try this,” she said.
“What is it?” I asked.
“You won’t have to use an ointment. It’s good for washing out any dirt on his scrape. Just spray it all over and dab with this cotton.” She explained as she handed me a clean cotton ball.
“No, I’m just going to use my stuff,” I said a little hesitant.
“Don’t be silly. Just try it. He won’t even feel a sting.”
Being absolutely peer pressured, but also a little curious, I tried the spray. Luckily, even though it looked like his knees were going to be a bit sensitive, he the spray didn’t make him scream like he normally does when I put the Neosporin foam on him.
After 5 minutes, my little guy was out and about, running and laughing again. All without having to put a bandaid on, too!
The spray bottle said to apply as many times as necessary. So I asked my friend if I could get some more on him before we left. She gave me the bottle instead.
Amazingly, the next day, my son’s knees didn’t look quite as bad as I imagined. Plus, he didn’t really complain about pain like he normally does.
So I did some extra research on this “miracle” spray as my friend calls it and it turns out, that it truly is only salt and water. Somehow there’s some crazy machine with a certain amount of power to combine both molecules, making it into a new compound, called hypochlorous acid. It claims to be hypoallergenic and free from a lot of irritants, which is probably the reason my little guy didn’t scream when I put it on him.
The trick with this amazing concoction of salt and water is the way it’s made, more so than what it’s made with. The description involved “brute force,” which apparently isn’t the same for other products with this ingredient. That’s why other products can smell bleachy and lack the “hypoallergenic” feature.
So apparently, hypochlorous acid is a natural element in our body that’s there to fight infection, bacteria, and foreign things that could enter and potentially do damage to our system. So being that it’s a natural ingredient found in our body, it’s no wonder it works so well!
5 Amazing Surprises of thaumaturgic bio mist Use
I’m now into my 3rd bottle since I learned about this product. And since then, I’ve had the pleasure of experimenting with it and finding it effective for the following:
- Enlarged Pores
- Candida (Yeast Infections)
My husband loves this because he seems to always forget to put on sunscreen, despite all the nagging I do and the fact that we live by the beach. The only downside to this is that he feels he can be even more neglectful of his sunscreens because he’s got an instant solution, in case he gets a sunburn.
My mom gets these random rashes on her back. We don’t know if it has to do with stress, something she eats, or something she’s exposed to without realizing it. When she had a reaction just a month ago, I immediately whipped out my bio mist and just sprayed it all over her itchy back. 5 minutes later, she was calm and felt so much better! Wow! Right?
I had a negative reaction to a facial sunscreen lotion, because instead of it actually reducing my enlarged pores, it made it so much more obvious. So after reading the suggested use section for the bio mist, I realized it was ok to use it on my face as a skincare product.
I applied the product onto my face after I’d washed it and waited at least 5 minutes, since it left my face very wet. I wanted to make sure it did its thing before I went ahead and mixed it up with other products.
It completely amazed me just after three days, since it seemed to relieve my face of whatever had been happening to it. Not only did my face look a lot less “holey,” but it also seemed to even out my brown spots and clear up the bumps that made their home on my upper cheeks.
Since it worked so well on my son’s cuts and scrapes, I now use it for mine, my husband’s and other people’s cuts. It not only eliminates minor pain, but it also seems to boost the healing time. My cuts don’t last quite as long as it used to!
Here’s a fancy word for yeast infection. As much as I hate to admit it, yeast infections happen a lot more, especially as I get older. Again, I took the suggestion from the thaumaturgic bio mist page and went ahead and tried it when I had a flare up.
You probably wouldn’t believe me unless you tried it for yourself. So I recommend doing so if you feel you have more yeast visits than you or anyone would ever like. When you feel a bit itchy, just spray as generously as you wish and wait for it to air dry as much as you can.
2 more awesome things
- Safe for your eyes
- Safe for kids
Another great thing about the product that I almost forgot to mention is that it’s also gentle on your eyes. After my face is fully wet with the mist, I don’t fear opening my eyes, because I know it won’t hurt.
Again, it’s so gentle that it’s totally safe for your skin as well as your kid’s.
If your kids play sports or you plan on spending a lot of time outdoors this Summer, then you need a thaumaturgic bio mist! Believe me, it’s the best thing you’ll have in your purse!
