There are a number of unusual items in the beekeeping bucket I carry around when I visit my honeybees. The latest one are these one-handed bandages I can easily apply when I get a cut.
I discovered the bandages when I was treating skin cuts as the result of an allergic reaction to benzoic acid, a component of essential oils I use when feeding my honeybees. The cuts become nerve-ending deep so until they seal, I have to cover them with bandages to reduce the pain.
If you've ever tried to apply a regular bandage, you know it's not easy with just one hand.
These new bandages have packaging designed that first, easily exposes the bandage and secondly, allows for easy, one-handed application.
It's the little things that make me very happy. And pain free!
