Lavender Oil: Using lavender oil for blisters January 07 2014

Blisters on the skin are often experienced as the result of burns and repetitive rubbing 
motions. They can be extremely painful and also particularly annoying when they are on 
your hands and feet. 
Lavender oil (Lavandula angustifolia) has analgesic (numbing), anti-inflammatory, and 
antibacterial properties that provide relief to blisters of all kinds. A regular application of 
lavender oil to blisters can ease throbbing pain, minimize swelling, reduce healing time, and 
even help prevent scarring of delicate skin.

For blistered burns, apply lavender oil to affected area as soon as possible. Make sure to 
clean skin prior to application to minimize the risk of infection.
Continue to apply neat (undiluted) every one or two hours to the affected area to reduce 
pain and prevent infection.
For blisters on feet or hands, apply lavender oil with a Q-tip to exactly cover only the blister. 
Cover with a band-aid to avoid infection. 
For sensitive skin or larger blisters, mix 10-20 drops of lavender oil with 1 oz carrier oil 
(such as almond, coconut or jojoba) and apply to clean skin 3-5 times a day. If possible, 
leave uncovered for as long as possible to increase oxygen and assist in cell rejuvenation.
