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.

Buyer beware.


My husband stepped on a nail head on our deck in 1999. He had on a pair of thong sandals and when he stepped on the nail head, a dime-sized piece of rubber was pushed into his foot. I took him to the emergency room where his foot was x-rayed but the piece of rubber did not show up. The doctor said he did not believe there was anything there. However, they gave him injection after injection into the bottom of his foot trying to numb it. My poor husband was in agony.

After the 4th set of injections, my husband walked out. He refused to allow any more injections. When we got home, I applied Lavender essential oil and did so several times a day every day for the next week. He was in constant pain from the rubber being in his foot and he decided he was going to get it out without going back to the doctor. It took quite awhile but he finally succeeded and his pain relief after the removal was immediate. He was amazed that there was absolutely no infection and the only odor from his foot was Lavender. He does not even have a scar.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: scars — "[One] method employed for wound healing is the application of lavender oil. Due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties, it is thought to prevent wound infections and to play a role in reducing pain by lowering inflammation.... Lavender oil is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, sedative, and/or antidepressant effects.... In addition to its antimicrobial effects, the anti-inflammatory analgesic properties of lavender oil have also been emphasized... The use of L. Angustifolia [lavender] is particularly recommended in chronically infected wounds due to its immune-stimulating and antimicrobial effects. There are also reports that lavender oil reduces scar tissue."Link
2.Associated topics: scars — "[A] pulverized mixture of four herbs including Agrimonia Eupatoria (A), Nelumbo Nucifera Gaertn (N), Boswellia Carteri (B) [Frankincense], and Pollen Typhae Angustifoliae (P)... was first described in Chinese canonical medicine about 2000 years ago for treatment of various trauma disorders, such as hemostasis [bleeding], anti-inflammatory, analgesia [pain], and wound healing, etc.... [W]e showed that local ANBP treatment not only significantly enhanced wound healing by relieving inflammation, increasing formation of granulation tissue, and accelerating re-epithelialization, but [it] also reduced scar formation by decreasing collagen production [and] protuberant height and volume of scars and [by] increasing collagen maturity.... [Results show that ANBP] promot[es] wound healing and alleviat[es] scar formation, which may be an effective therapy for human wounds at the earliest stage."Link
