Clove Bud Oil: Using clove bud oil for corns June 17 2014
Much like calluses, corns develop on the feet because of friction and pressure, but they only appear on or between the toes (ouch!) Corns first cause pain on the surface of the foot, where the top of the corn rubs against a shoe that fits too tightly, for example. But the real problem arises inside the toe, where the root of the corn exerts pressure on sensitive nerves and can cause debilitating pain and inflammation.
Clove bud oil has powerful anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and anti-fungal properties that can help dramatically in the treatment of corns. Studies have shown clove bud oil treatments to be most effective at the first sign of a corn, and need to be reapplied diligent over a fairly long period of time in order to show results.
How to use clove bud oil to treat corns:
Add 20-30 drops of clove bud oil to a small tub of warm water. Soak feet for at least 15 minutes three times a day. Following the soak, thoroughly dry feet and use the following topical treatment:
Apply 1-2 drops of undiluted clove bud oil directly to the affected area two or three times a day. Continue this method of application until the corn has cleared, and for an additional two weeks after all signs of it has vanished to make sure the root is completely eradicated.
