How to heal blisters in a natural way

Water blisters on feet usually appear because of wearing uncomfortable or new shoes while blisters on fingers appear by working in the garden without gloves. If you have a water blister do not try to blow it, because the tissue beneath the blister can easily become infected! It is recommended to leave it as it is and if it is possible to put a bandage on it. When the blister breaks it is necessary to clean it regularly until it is completely healed. If you ask yourself how to heal blisters than there are couple of herbs that might help you stop the pain, enhance skin healing and prevent possible infection.

1. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera juice is an excellent natural cure for blisters. Aloe vera has long been known for its miraculous healing abilities of wounds, cuts, blisters and burns. When you tear off the piece of aloe vera, it will start to leak its juice. Use this aloe vera juice to spread all over the blister.

You can also create your own "aloe vera gel". Pick up several leaves of aloe vera and grind them in the food processor, and your aloe vera gel is ready! (Keep it in the fridge).

For long-term use you can prepare aloe vera oil as follows:

Tear off a few leaves of aloe vera, chop and place them in a glass bottle. Pour over the leaves olive oil and leave it to stand for 60 days, and then strain. Keep oil tightly closed in a dark room. This oil can be used to treat burns, cuts, skin rash and blisters.

2. Barberry (Berberis vulgaris)

If blisters on skin become infected, use the barberry. Barberry is known for its medicinal properties for thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians used it as prevention against many infectious diseases, such as plague. It is now known that barberry has antibacterial and antifungal properties. Tincture or juice of this plant is applied locally, directly on the blister. The plant is very powerful, so it is recommended to use it in small quantities.

3. St. John's Wort

St. John's Wort is another herb that helps with blisters. St. John's wort is one of the few herbs that have antibacterial, antiviral and antimycotic (antifungal) effect. It’s oil is rich in hypericin, tannins and flavonoids, which have anti-inflammatory effect and it helps in epithelialization of the skin. Therefore it has been known as the oil that can be applied to any wound.

If blisters already occurred on your skin then try with some of the remedies I recommended, but always have in mind: prevention rather than cure. You can prevent occurrence of foot blister by wearing comfortable, appropriate shoes and clean socks. It is known that tight shoes or high heels increase the risk of blisters. Blisters are more likely to occur on wet skin, so if you sweat too often (for example, during sports activities) you should change your socks more often. When working in the garden with a shovel or hoe it is recommended to use gloves to prevent the occurrence of blisters.
