If you have ever strained an ankle or been stung by a bee, you will know what a compress looks like. Itís a cloth soaked in water, vinegar or herbal infusion. Held against the injury, it will reduce swelling or bruising.
A cold cloth across the forehead to relieve a headache is also a compress. Itís even more efficient if you add two-three drops of lavender essential oil to the water.
