blistersHave you ever gotten a blister on your foot from your shoes rubbing either your toe or your heel? I hate that feeling. Just think about professional dancers, spinning and twisting around on the floor with bare feet! I’m sure they get blisters quite often.

The best thing to do for that type of blister is to cover it with a gauze bandage that has a few drops of lavender or chamomile essential oil on it. If you have a very large blister, it’s best to sterilize a needle and puncture the blister first. Then apply lavender neat and put a gauze bandage on it after that. For those large blisters, you can make a synergistic blend of equal parts lavender and myrrh.

Don’t put the kind of band aid on your blister that won’t let your skin breath. Put a gauze bandage on and hold it on with plaster strips so that the skin can breath as much as possible. Leave off shoes and socks as much as possible or at least wear shoes that do not touch the blister until it has  healed completely. People more likely to get blisters – joggers, hikers, athletes and ballet dancers for example, can use tincture of benzoin painted on their toes, heels or other susceptible parts of the foot. This will prevent and help heal blisters.
