A few days ago I was cleaning some very dirty wood (on a dog pen) that was weathered from rain, mud and who knows what else. I felt my hand become sliced. At first I didn't realize what happened. But upon examining it, I realized that it was a small splinter in the size of the palm area.
Upon pulling it out, I realized that this splinter was about 1/2 an inch long. It bled a little and I wash it with soap and water and went back out to finish my job that I had started. Within an hour, I could not bend the whole hand for it was swelling and very warm to the touch. The pain and swelling was spreading up to my wrist.
I began applying Lavender and Peppermint to the entire swollen part of the hand and wrist every hour to 2 hours for the rest of the day until bed. I started again the following day. By the second day, I was able to begin to bend the hand 1/2 way.
Fourty eight hours later, the swelling had gone down completely and I was able to use the hand completely again.
Now, over 48 hours later, I am still applying it to keep ahead of what ever it was but I have full use of the hand once again and the pain is only mild tenderness now.
