Stepped off a ladder wrong and twisted and sprained my ankle. Immediately swelling and PAIN. Applied washcloth soaked with ACV and bag of crushed ice on top of that. After a few hours I continuously applied Helichrysum essential oil. In 2 days I was back to work on my feet. Kept it wrapped in ace bandage with the oil applied first. Had just a mild limp. Swelling went down overnight! Barely a bruise. I've sprained this ankle before, usually extreme swelling and purple bruising and pain for a week or so. Also applied an Arnica cream at bedtime.
