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.

My husband came home complaining of soreness in his mouth. He had eaten something for lunch while it was too hot and had not taken a drink in time to prevent a burn on the roof of his mouth that broke the skin. He said it had been hurting and had been bothersome all afternoon at work.
I applied one drop of Lavender essential oil neat (undiluted) to his burn, even though it had been 7 or more hours since the burn occurred. Of course, it would have been best to apply it sooner after the incident, but I thought that it should have the same healing effects whenever it is applied.
About 30 minutes later I asked him how his burn was, and he said, "Burn? Oh, yeah! I forgot about it; I can't even feel it any more." Better-late-than-never can be helpful in various instances!

|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|
