Buyer beware.

Several days ago I clipped the toenail on one of my big toes too short and got into the nail bed at the top of the toenail. Ouch! Having done this before, I knew it could be tender and painful for several days, especially if I accidentally bumped it.

I immediately thought of Melrose oil, having experienced it's analgesic (pain-relieving) and tissue regenerative qualities on scraped gums. I applied it to my skin and went on with my day.

It wasn't until yesterday that I looked down and when I saw my feet I remembered the toenail. I was excited that I had totally forgotten the incident because I hadn't had any pain after applying the Melrose!

As a mom of little ones, whose fingernails and toenails I regularly clip, I'm happy to know what oil can relieve pain if I clip too closely.
