A carbuncle is a painful cluster of lumps that form under the skin and they usually contain pus. They form when bacteria namely Staph (Staphylococcus aureus) infect a hair follicle or a group of hair follicles and they become inflamed. These infected areas of skin form a lump that is tender and red which then becomes filled with pus.

The carbuncle is much deeper under the skin than a boil and contains a much more serve infection than a boil. They develop slowly and heal even slower leaving a scar when healed. Some of the symptoms of a carbuncle include tenderness, redness, swelling, chills, pain and fever.

You should visit a medical doctor if you develop a carbuncle especially if it is in an area that you can’t reach or on the face. Below you find some essential oil formulas that I personally created. I am a certified natural health consultant and I have worked with, study and created many different essential oil formulas over the past 20 years.

Carbuncle Formulas

Choose a formula then Mix these oils in with the water well and bathe the area with this twice a day. If the inflammation is very bad you can add in a drop of chamomile oil.

**Note: These are formulas that I have created and worked with over the years. Be sure to wear gloves when working with essential oils in their pure state and they should always be diluted with a carrier oil. Test a small path of skin with a tiny bit of the formula to make sure that you do not experience an allergic reaction before you use it on a large area of skin. I have over 25 years of experience working with herbs and essential oils for natural healing. I am also a certified natural health consultant but No liability can be taken by me!**
