Blisters

Parts of this were taken with permission from Essential Oils Overview and Reference Guide, published by: The Family Tree, 2008

Summary

BlisterBlisters on the skin may come from a variety of sources but the most common are from repeated rubbing on the skin and 2nd or 3rd degree burns.  Badly fitted shoes or boots can cause blisters on heels, toes, or balls of the feet.  Using yard tools with repeated motions without wearing gloves is another common source.  The best cure for these types of blisters is prevention.  Test new shoes and boots before going on extended activities.  Wear gloves if your hands are not calloused when doing repeated motions with tools.

All this being said, blisters happen.  The greatest problem with blisters is the potential for infection as the blistered skin peels away revealing the dermal layer, which is more prone to infection without the protective epidermal layer of skin not to mention the painful discomfort.  Essential oils are ideal for this situation since many oils are both analgesic as well as antibacterial.

Oils, blends & products recommended:

Oils & Blends:  Lavender, Melaleuca, Myrrh, On Guard

Essential oils based products:

Also consider: Geranium, Helichrysum, Purify

Suggested protocols:

·    Clean the area of the blister with On Guard foaming cleanser or other cleansing and disinfecting agent.

·    If comfort and convenience allow the blistered skin not to be broken or the blister has opened by itself skip the next step.

·    Drain the blister by disinfecting a needle with Melaleuca (or rubbing alcohol).  Then penetrate the blistered skin and allow the blister to drain.

·    Apply one of the oils (Lavender, Melaleuca, Myrrh) topically, neat every one or two hours to the affected area to reduce pain and prevent infection.

·    If area will be exposed to direct sources of infection cover the blistered area, otherwise it is best left uncovered to heal more rapidly.
