Comfrey Oil Poultice

How to make a Comfrey oil poultice using one of my infused oils.

Poultices can be used to draw infection, treat boils and abscesses. They can also be used to draw the poison from a bee sting.

The other day I developed an abscess on my ear lobe. It was where my pierced earring would have been. The infection got worse because I could not find the opening to release the pressure. In my Herbal Class I had learned a poultice could pull infection out.

I mixed my Green Clay powder with a little Comfrey Oil to make a paste, applied it to my ear lobe, and used a Band-Aid to hold it in place. I wore it all day and that night. The next morning my ear lobe infection started to drain. I applied an new poultice and left it on that day. The ear lobe drained for five days.

You can make a poultice to draw infection, treat boils and abscesses, relieve inflammation or a rash or simply draw the poison from a bee sting!

What is a poultice? A homemade poultice is made by mashing herbs, plant material or another substance with warm water or natural oils to make a paste. The paste can be applied directly to the skin and covered with a piece of clean cloth. If the herb used is potent such as onion, garlic, ginger, mustard, etc., you may want a layer of thin cloth between the skin and the herb. The cloth can then be covered with plastic wrap to hold in the moisture. The poultice can be changed every 3 to 4 hours or whenever it dries out.
A compress is used the same way but usually warm liquids are applied to the cloth instead of raw substances. Tinctures or herbal infusions are great for compresses.

The following poultice ingredients have properties to draw out infections reduce inflammation. These poultices can even be used to treat chest congestion, hemorrhoids and earaches. Don’t forget that you can use poultices or compresses on your pets and livestock also!
