As clumsy as I can be at times, I did kicked my left toe recently while stumbling around at home. I kicked it into a piece of heavy furniture. There was a moment of numbness before the pain kicked in. By then, the toe has gone from pink to an agry red and blue as well. It was not possible to step on and the toe had became twice its actually size! My toenail was all dark and blue/black. Obviously there was internal bleeding and swelling.

Without thinking I sprinkled Lavender on it generously and lay down, resting and raising my foot up on pillows. Thank God, I was in my bedroom within hops of my bed.

I continued to apply Lavender many times for the rest of the day despite the fact that I was hobbling around at home, painfully.

What surprised me was what I see of my toe the next morning. There was virtually no swelling, and the angry red and blue was reduced to a dark red patch under my toe nail. I had obviously kicked my toenails and pried it from my toe the day before. Although the toenail did appear wobbly and not quite set on the toe, it seemed to have healed fast and fine. There was no pain nor tenderness after 3 days. I am amazed at the healing that has taken place.
