Home & Herbal Remedies

Collected from around the world and through the ages




  • Lavender oil or tree oil.  Lavender oil (or tree oil), damp wash cloth, dry towel and heating pad, gauze/or band-aid.  Dab some lavender oil onto the boil to help bring it to a head, cover with either a gauze or band-aid. Periodically through the day, cover bandage with a damp washcloth, dry towel and then apply the heating pad and leave on a low temperature for about 15 minutes. Change your dressing and reapply the lavender oil. The lavender oil helps bring the boil to a head, and the warm compress helps pull the infection out of the skin. If you do this before you change the bandage dressing, you container the infection to the gauze/band-aid that you are going to throw away and keep your wash cloth fairly clean of infection. Tea tree oil works just as well as lavender, but the lavender smells better. Be sure to apply an antibiotic such as Neosporin or Bacitracin after the boil has been treated successfully.

  • Aspirin and soap.  Ingredients: one Bayer aspirin (non-coated), one bar of Dove soap (must be white), water, Band-aid or gauze
    Instructions: First, take the aspirin and crush it down to a powder-like substance, then, shave some of the bar of soap(can be done with a cheese grater, knife or razor blade).  Next, put the Dove shavings and aspirin on a plate and add a drop or two of water (depending on how much mixture you’re making) to from a paste.  Put some of the paste on the boil and cover with either gauze or a band-aid.  Leave over night and in the morning remove the dressing and the boil should have come to a head, burst and drained.  Make sure the core comes out, and if not you might try to pull the affected area until it pops out. Never squeeze a boil, as you will likely cause the infection to spread!  Repeat this procedure if needed.  Apply Neosporin, Bacitracin, or a similar antibiotic ointment to the boil area to prevent infection.

  • Flour and vinegar.  Mix a small amount of flour and vinegar to make a thick paste. Place the paste on the boil over night and wrap it with gauze.  Over night the paste should harden like a cast. Upon removing the bandage in the morning, the head of the boil should come out.

  • Banana.  Peel a banana (a ripe banana works best). Place the banana peel on the boil and leave it there for as long as you can, preferably overnight.  When you wake up in the morning, the boil should have drained on its own.

  • Onion or potato. Cut small slivers of either one and apply to the affected boil and cover.  Change 4 times a day, until the boil comes to a head and drains.  Also helps with the pain.

  • Bacon Fat and band-aid.  Cut bacon fat from bacon and place over boil. Adhere bandage and leave on overnight. Boil should come to a head and rupture upon removing bandage. If unsuccessful, repeat procedure.

  • Egg and band-aid.  Crack open and discard contents of egg, then take thin white layer of inside shell and place over boil opening(head)then put on bandage overnight.  When you wake up, take off bandage and the core of the boil should come out and the boil should then drain its contents.

  • Raisins. Eat raisins as much as you can to prevent them. My grandmother made me eat them after I got my first boil, and made me eat them all through child hood and I haven't had one in years. There is something in raisins that prevents them.

  • Nutmeg is also reported to be good to help prevent boils.  Sprinkle on your food each day.
