Another break from you know what:)
My daughter, Erin, loves to run here and there. Her dad and I sometimes think she is a “tomboy” because she loves to play boyish stuff like her brother. Sometimes, when her brother is already at home watching TV, we have to look for her outside because she’s probably still playing hide and seek, with her playmates or just simply running around our compound. When we hear her loud cry from outside, we knew from then, she tripped again and scraped her knees just like what happened a while ago.
See those scrapes?
Good thing I always have this at home..
Apollo Petroluem Jelly
After washing her wounded knee, I immediately put a little petrolouem jelly on it because we believe that it helps in healing those wounds. Petroluem jelly or soft paraffin is a semi-solid mixture of hydrocarbons originally promoted as a topical ointment for its healing properties.
Its folkloric medicinal value as a “cure-all” has since been limited by better scientific understanding of appropriate and inappropriate uses. However, it is recognized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an approved over-the-counter (OTC) skin protectant and remains widely used in cosmetic skin care.
Petroleum jelly can be used for the following:
- As a softener for cuticles.
- Can be a treatment for chapped lips.
- Sometimes spread on the teeth of beauty pageant contestants in order to prevent their lipstick from sticking to their teeth.
- As a fire starter on camping trips. Coat a cotton ball with it and light.
- It was also recommended by Porsche in the owner’s manual of their cars as a preservative for light alloy anodizedFuchs wheels to protect them against corrosion from road salts and brake dust. “Every three months (after regular cleaning) the wheels should be coated with petroleum jelly.
After crying out loud..(maybe for psychological reason) she said her wounds were all gone in an instant=)
