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 was cooking one evening and burned my hand on the oven rack as I was putting in a casserole. I usually put ice on burns, but I remembered hearing somewhere to try applying Lemongrass essential oil to the burn.
It seems a little counterintuitive since Lemongrass is a warm oil, but I tried it anyway. I put one drop directly on the burned area and gently rubbed it in.
The discomfort disappeared immediately and never came back. Also, no burn mark of any kind was visible by the next morning.
One day when my daughter was visiting, I shared this with her after she had burned herself. She followed the same regimen and got the same results.

|1.||"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|

(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|
