My 13 year old daughter came to me one day with a swollen red big toe and in the corner of said toe (down near cuticle area) I noticed a little green pocket of puss. We were unsure of what this was and have no idea what caused it.
We decided to soak her foot in epsom salts and add one drop of Thieves essential oil from Young Living to the toe after drying it off and covered it with band-aids. We did that for two days twice a day. On the third day, we just added the Thieves into the water and left the toe uncovered. We treated this way for two days as well.
By the end of the fourth day she did not need anymore treatments the toe had completely dried up with no swelling. When looking at it on the fifth day noticed that the dead skin was gone, where the blister was and there was fresh skin growing underneath.
Working with teenagers at times can be difficult with this kind of thing. The first time we used the Thieves on the toe my daughter said she could actually feel the oil seeping into the infection. Her description was that it was tingling. I believe the oil was actually attacking the infection and preventing it from getting into her blood stream.
We are so thankful for the Young Living oils and the purity they provide. I never have to worry when I'm treating my children with these oils. I KNOW there will not be any negative side effects or harm done to them if I follow the guidelines being careful not to neatly apply the more potent oils. Thank you Young Living!
