Bathe the area with 2 drops of lavender and 2 drops of thyme linalol diluted in a small bowl of hot water. If the inflammation is severe, add 1 drop of chamomile roman. Then put 1 drop of either undiluted lavender or undiluted chamomile roman directly onto the boil. If the boil has burst and is open, apply 1 drop each of lavender and thyme linalol around the boil. Alternatively, use 1 drop of thyme linalol combined with 1 drop of lemon and apply as above. Hot compresses can be applied to draw out the pus from a boil. Put 1 drop of thyme linalol and 1 drop of lavender onto a hot compress and apply twice a day. After the pus has been dispelled, apply a little of the following oil around the affected area, twice a day:

Lavender 3 drops
Thyme linalol 2 drops
Tea tree 2 drops

Blend together and then dilute by adding 4–5 drops to 1 teaspoon (5 mL) of aloe vera gel.
