Best. Anti-infective. Ever.

If you're like me and you practically run a zoo out of your house, you're probably prone to nasty little infect-y cuts. Here's my awesome completely natural cure for infected injuries. No antibiotics involved!

Probably goes without saying that this should only be used on limbs. I don't imagine this would be too fun to accidentally get up your vajay. Or in your eye. Yeow.

- As much warm water as you need to submerge the thing run in the bathtub
- 7-10 drops of Tea Tree Oil (careful, this stuff is freaking potent)
- 1/4 cup of epsom salts
- 1-2 tablespoons of Aloe Vera gel

Soak your injured part for about 20 minutes or so. Rinse THOROUGHLY. You don't wanna have that TTO siting on your skin for longer than necessary. NASTY shit.

TMI warning: I get those infected toenails a lot because my dogs always seem to step on my feet (you would too if you had a 100 pound goldendoodle) and I'm just generally hard on my feet. (I think I've ripped a toenail half off at least twice this past month). This works much better than any antibiotic cream, alcohol, or hydrogen peroxide. Like, a LOT better. I usually have relief the next day, where I might be fighting one off for weeks otherwise. One or two of these footbaths and it's usually cured. I guess though, if you think about it, I don't imagine much WOULD live given the ingredients I listed. Tea Tree Oil would pull the chrome off a Buick. If you're the sufferer of a inadvertently removed toenail, also keeping it moist with a bandaid and a little moisturizer piled under the bandaid 24/7, and liberally, helps it grow back through soft skin.
