Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I am kind of new to essential oils and have been trying them out for a couple of months.

I was doing my hair one morning when I dropped my flat iron. I went to catch it and got my thumb in-between the hot plates. I received a burn on the very tender part of my thumb and could smell the skin burning.

I grabbed my Lavender essential oil and rubbed it all over the burn. I noticed that I had a pretty big spot that was burned, although the pain went away after about 5 minutes.

I got busy with my day and forgot about my thumb until later that afternoon. When I looked at the burn, there was no blister, only a darker colored spot. The next morning that spot was totally gone.

Now fast forward 3 days, and I am headed on an all-girl trip with my girlfriends. One of the girls traveling with us wrecked her car. Praise the Lord, the girls in that car were not hurt. My friend, the driver did get a bad burn on her foot from the airbag, however.

We used Lavender essential oil on the burn. Within about 10 minutes the large, red burned spot had faded to a very light red, and the burning had stopped. The next morning the burn spot was unnoticeable.

Two of the girls who were with us on the trip are nurses, and they were so impressed. They said that they had heard stories about essential oils but had never seen them in action.

I am a true believer and just love my essential oils.

(Black cumin) has shown a broad spectrum of pharmacological effects like antipyretic [fever reducing], analgesic [pain reducing], anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial.... The present study suggests the burn wound healing action of seeds may be due to anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of major compounds in the oil."Link
2.Associated topics: burns — "Melaleuca Alternifolia [tea tree] Hydrogel... was compared with tap water as a coolant following application onto a fresh, deep, partial-thickness hot water burn.... Effective cooling of the burn wound and an increased rate of wound healing was achieved by both repeated tap water compresses and by immediate or delayed application of Melaleuca Hydrogel. Cooling is an effective means to reduce tissue damage and increase wound healing."Link
