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.

When using a new hair styling tool, I mishandled it and burned the tip of my finger. I ran it under cold water right away and thought it wasn't that bad of a burn... until it started throbbing a few minutes later.

I put a drop of Lavender essential oil on and tried to forget about it. The throbbing continued, so I put some ice on it.

I totally underestimated how bad the burn was (the tool was heated to over 400 degrees). I remembered reading that it is good to layer the oils, so I reapplied the Lavender a few times each hour for the rest of that afternoon.

By the end of the day, I still had a small white mark on the tip of my finger and only had about 90% of the feeling back, but thankfully there was absolutely no pain or blister.

The next morning I woke up, and it was totally back to normal. I believe that the Lavender helped minimize the duration of the effects of the burn.

1.Associated topics: burns — "Burn Healing Potential of Nigella sativa seed oil in rats.... Nigella sativa L. (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
