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.

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.
