Lavender essential oil

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.
