A boil is a skin infection that forms in a hair follicle or oil gland. The boil starts as a red, tender lump that after a few days forms a white or yellow point in the center as it fills with pus. Boils commonly occur on the face, neck, armpits, buttock, and shoulders and can be very painful.

Melaleuca, Cleansing Blend, lavender

Gently rub on affected areas.

Simple Solutions:

Add 5 drops melaleuca oil and 2 drops lavender to 2 cups (480 ml) clean hot water in a bowl. Soak a clean washcloth with the solution, and use to wash infected area twice a day.
