Erin here is a special post for you and your ankle! 🙂
When the pain is acute gently massage the area with linseed oil every few hours then follow up with a daily massage of the oil.
If the area is swollen, apply a compress of apple cider vinegar. To make the compress, place a cloth in warmed vinegar, wring it out and apply to the sprain.
When the swelling has gone, gently massage the area with a 50/50 mixture of rosemary essential oil and linseed oil.
