Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I had been rototilling my garden for over an hour, so the rototiller was super hot. For some stupid reason, though, I decided to untangle some nasty weeds. Upon doing so, my hand slipped off the weed and onto the muffler! The inside of my arm hit the muffler for what seemed like only a brief second, but I immediately felt the burn.

Living on a farm and covered in dirt, I just ran to the barn and immersed it into the nearest pail of cold water. I then went into the house, rinsed it off under clean water, and began the essential oil treatment.

For the first five days or so, I dropped Lavender and Purification essential oils on it. Lavender is to cool and heal, and Purification is to disinfect. I think I wasted quite a bit of the essential oils though. I was dropping them on; and some would run on the wound, and some would run off.

So I got a small spray bottle and added to it a couple tablespoons of pure water, 6 drops Lavender, and 6 drops Purification. I also pierced a Vitamin E capsule and added that oil to the mix. I shook this mixture and used it at least every 15 minutes, as the wound was drying and feeling tight and sore. The essential oils kept it only slightly moist, and they were most soothing. At night I covered the injury with a loose cloth, as I found gauze stuck.

I am amazed to say that it is only 1 1/2 weeks since the accident, and I have only fresh new skin to show for it. I did not blister, and spraying the scab healed it very quickly. Everyone at work was amazed too!
