Most of us have that certain spot in the home where you often get a splinter. Mine is the wooden rail on my staircase. I’ve smoothed it many times but somehow it always comes back and I seem to be the one who gets the splinter.

Splinters initially cause pain by ripping your flesh and muscle. If not treated  quickly, infection from bacteria on the splinter can cause severe internal damage through migration to vital organs or bone over time. The best treatment for a splinter is to remove it with a sterilized needle or pair of tweezers. Other than that, you only need to apply 1 drop neat of lavender or tea tree to the site.
