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