Bunions Essential Oil Usage

A bunion is a bony protrusion on the side of the big toe or in some less common cases on the outside of the small toe.  The protrusion at the joint of the base of the toe can become irritated, swollen and painful.  As the protrusion becomes larger the toe bends toward the second toe causing further sources of irritation.  There appears to be multiple causes of a bunion.  Genetically the foot may be shaped such that normal activity puts excessive pressure on the big toe eventually causing a bunion.  Some suggest footwear that does not fit properly may also put excessive pressure and cause a bunion.  The protrusion may be excessive bone structure or a fluid sac called the bursa that becomes inflamed.  In any case the deformity of the toe makes it difficult to find proper fitting footwear, is not a pleasant sight, and can be very painful.

Also topically apply to the area Wintergreen, Lemongrass and AromaTouch for pain and healing. Breathe, Deep Blue, Immortelle and/or PastTense may also be used for pain.
