How to Make Herbal Ice Cubes for Bruises/Swelling

Herbal Ice Cubes

Pour 1 cup of boiling water over 1 teaspoon of chamomile flowers and 1 teaspoon of lavender flowers. Steep, covered, for 15 minutes. Strain out the flowers and freeze in ice cube trays. Once frozen, pop them out of the molds and keep stored in a freezer-safe plastic baggie. When needed, take a cube out and place between folds of a cotton cloth and apply to swollen/bruised area.

**For kids, it’s fun to use small candy molds or themed ice cube trays. The smaller cube size is just the right size for a kid-sized swelling, as a big ice cube will usually be discarded before it melts completely, which is a waste. If using a smaller size, the compress can be held to the area until it melts completely, and then you’re done!
