Make a paste of ground lemon leaves and butter. Apply on the affected area.
Mix 1 teaspoon of almond oil with 1 teaspoon of garlic oil and apply on the injured area.
Mix 1 teaspoon of lemon juice or raw lime powder with 1 teaspoon of honey and apply on the sprain.
Warm the outer leaves of a cabbage in hot water and bandage them around the sprain.
Place an ice pack on the injured area for about 15-20 minutes. This will help ease the swelling and tenderness.
Apply warm compress on the sprain area. Use a towel and soak in warm vinegar as a compress to reduce the pain.
