Introducing natural anti-bacterial honey band-aids created by members of Mrs. Nic's Bio-sub.Club. We used store bought Johnson & Johnson brand plain sheer strip band-aids and coated the pads with thin layers of either organic honey, organic honey and aloe sap, or organic honey and eucalypus essential oil.

Step 1: Introducing Honey Coated Band-aids---naturally Anti-bacterial
Your choice of band-aids with untreated pads.... We like the thicker pads by Johnson & Johnson.
Aloe sap ---broken off and squeezed
Local organic honey --thin layer
Eucalyptus essential oil ---one drop per pad
Tools for spreading: flat sponge stick and/or q-tip
Step 2: Comparison Shopping
Our club members studied CVS anti-bacterial band-aids that did not explain contents in detail --just wrote hydro-colloid. We wanted to be specific about labeling our natural anti-bacterial coating on the pads.
Step 3: Photos of Process. Wrapped in Beeswrap TM
These photos help tell the story. My club members continue to accept feedback and re-engineer their bee products. LinkedIn.com/in/christinanicolson.com
