The miracle of having all the hobbies, is I tend to have lots of kit with me

My 5 year old picked up a splinter in her big toe.

My botany kit has some tweezers, a sharp knife, and a light on one of the tiny microscopes.

My essential oils travel kit has clove oil. A good topical anesthetic and antibacterial.

A dab of clove oil, a bit of digging around with the razer knife, and a pluck of the tweezers. No more splinter.

A look at the splinter, an explanation of the oil used, a wiff of lavender. A happy little girl.
