33 Home Remedies for Bruises
Lavender essential oil
June 12, 2014
Try lavender essential oil mixed with carrier oil (Coconut, Shea Butter, Olive, any oil will do) and apply directly to the bruise and bandage it. The bruise will go away in no time. If it is burning or hurting, that means you added to much lavender oil.

It sounds weird but it works wonders!! And is readily available. Smooth toothpaste over your bruise and bandage it before you go to bed. (The bandages are so the toothpaste doesn't go everywhere.) I had bad bruises and they had faded after one night and were almost completely gone after two nights! It seriously worked!!! :)

I apply a coin such a penny to a small bruised area and press down gently, holding the coin there for a minute. Move the coin to different areas of the bruise, allowing the clotted blood underneath the skin to disburse. The bruise will turn brown in the next day and will certainly fade out completely after that.

The cure for bruises
June 10, 2010
A long time ago, I had a wreck in my car which left a large bruise on my abdomen (I flipped the car at 80 miles per hour 3 times).
My doctor prescribed Bromelain tablets.
I looked up bromlain and was surprised to know that it was a constituent of bananas, the white part has the highest content.
Now pure bromelain tablets are available at health food stores.
My bruise went away after only a few days.

Twist It Away!
June 27, 2009
After a great night of intimacy, I woke up to a hickey on my neck. I work in Iraq and the last thing you want people to know is you're getting some since we're not supposed to be doing that kind of stuff over here. Anyway, since I had to be at work and could not take the day off, and its Summer time...I'm talking 98 degrees by 0815, there was no way to wear a turtle neck or scarf. So, I remember what I use to do in High School... READY?
To get rid of a hickey, get a lipstick cap that is circular. Put it on the hickey and twist the cap and pull out creating suction. Continue to do this until you can't stand the pain anymore or for like 5 to 10 minutes. This will make it look really red. Leave it alone for like 30 minutes to let the blood move around. You could even rub on it during these 30 minutes or put something cold on it to help with the pain, and then do it again. Make sure you twist it and pull up at the same time. Do it directly on the hickey and surrounding area. It will make it go away fast.
Like I said, I just woke up with mine so you know it's really red and bruised...I had to sneak in my office and get to work. No one has seen me over here doing this. I didn’t want to put anything cold on it so it doesn’t look obvious. I’m just rubbing my neck since it looks like I just have a sore neck. I just did my 2nd round and have been letting it sit while I’ve been typing this. Right now, I can hardly see it anymore. I may do it another time just to make sure, but I will see how it looks in 15 to 20 more minutes. Within an hour, it’s hardly noticeable. IT WORKS!

Heat it out
June 17, 2009
Alright well just a few days ago , my upper lip got bruised. I looked awful and ugly... So my grandmother suggested I try boiling some water with salt and then wetting a washcloth and putting it on my bruise as hot as I could bare. Amazingly enough, I repeated this 2 times, once every night b4 going to bed. By the third day it was practically gone. I died it a third time that night and by morning my bruise was completely gone! So yea..... Boil some water with salt. Get the washcloth in the water and then on ur lip for as hot as u culd bare (the hotter the better) repeat this 2-4 times once every night b4 bed for about 15-20minutes (just make sure u reheat the water so it stays nice and hot). In 2-4 days ur bruise will b gone!
