I was out a few days ago (August 2006) doing some cleaning in the yard, and decided to check the blueberries out behind one of our barns. I did not know, however, that underneath the tall grass was a board with a nail sticking up, and I stepped square on it, almost the exact center of my right foot. Mercifully I was able to react quickly, and I think the puncture was limited to a quarter inch? At any rate, I quickly hobbled back into the house and told my wife to get off the phone QUICK, and we went for the oils.
I knelt on the floor so that my foot could rest, sole facing upwards, in my wife's lap, and she applied the oils. We used Lavender, Clove, and Oregano, and possibly Thyme, and did it again in another hour, and then another couple of times later in the day. The greatest pain was in the initial squeezing that she did to attempt to remove foreign elements, but after the initial application my foot began to feel better right away. NEVER any severe pain, other than the original puncture. It is now the third day, and other than a bit of tenderness when pressure is applied directly to the wound, there is no discomfort whatever.
