I will admit it. I get ingrown toenails all the time. I think it is from wearing running shoes all the time? I don't know what exactly the cause is but whatever, it happens. I end up butchering my toes in an effort to rid myself of the nuisance and then, of course they get infected.
I used to just use super hot water and epsom salt bathes to get rid of the infection but I've added some amazingness from my essential oil collection.
I got Raven for Christmas and I've been try it for everything. I knew it was associate with inflammation or infection so I added it to my bath and Thieves, because of it's antioxidant qualities.
Within minutes, I could feel relief (i.e. it didn't hurt to touch the toe!) and within hours, the pain and inflammation was all gone.
