hot compressYesterday we talked about using cold compresses so today we’ll discuss using hot compresses. Use a hot compress to draw out infection from cuts and wounds. The water in the bowl for a hot compress should be hot but not intolerable¬†to the touch. Put the essential oil drops onto the water’s surface and then lay the piece of cloth over the oils as described for cold water compresses.¬†Immediately remove the cloth and gently wring it out. Place the hot compress to the wounded area for about 20 minutes. Repeat the process 2 or 3 times in a row to draw out the infection. Again, if the injury is acute, seek medical attention. Below are some essential oil blends that will work well for hot compresses.

Synergistic Blends for Hot Compresses

  • For grazes and scratches: 3 drops tea tree and 3 drops frankincense
  • For deep infected cuts: 3 drops myrrh and 3 drops manuka
  • For boils or infected pimples: 3 drops bergamot and 3 drops ravensara
