Buyer beware.

My husband was on a ladder at work. He was filling the brine tank on a water softener at the hospital where he works. His co-worker spilled some water on the floor and the rubber feet that were at the bottom of his ladder slipped on the water and he and his ladder fell.

His fingers were on the rung of the ladder and so the weight of the ladder and his body came down on his ring finger crushing the bone in the end of the finger. The finger itself looked as if it were a tomatoe that someone had stepped on because the end of the finger had been blown out! It was aweful looking.

He went to the Emergency Room and they took the x-ray to confirm that the bone in the finger had been crushed. My husband was not in pain so he left with his prescription for pain pills and some nausea medicine in case of side effects from the painers.

By the time he got to the pharmacy he was dancing around in pain. I met him there with some Wintergreen. I had heard that it would take the pain out of a broken bone. I put some on him and sat him down to wait for the RX.

I went to get some milk and when I came back his hand was no longer in the air. His hand was down by his side and he was resting comfortably. He stated that he no longer needed the pain pills that his finger did not hurt anymore. We filled the RX anyway just in case the pain got worse.

I mixed up some oils (Geranium, Peppermint, Tea Tree, Orange, and Helichrysm) to stop the bleeding and speed healing. We put these on 2x per day for about 1 week. The finger is healing nicely. It still hurts if he bumps it as the bone is not healed yet. But he has some Wintergreen that he carries with him and uses it if he does bump it.

Bottom line is that he never used one single pain pill nor any antiseptic. Just oils and he is doing wonderfully. In fact he is out in his woodshop tonight working on some Christmas presents only 1 week after the accident.
