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.


The morning of January 1, 2015, I slipped on iced over steps outside of the kitchen and poured a pot of boiling, greasy water onto my left leg. Once I realized what happened I ran inside and peeled off my thermal leggings where the water was trapped. The skin had literally melted off in several places from my knee down.

I immediately got a bottle of Lavender and started to drip it onto the burns. I considered going to the hospital, but waited instead to see if I could get it under control. My husband was fanning my leg and called my sister to bring more oils over as I was generously using the only bottle of Lavender.

When she got there, 45 minutes later, we applied Spikenard, Idaho Balsam Fir and Helichrysum. We also happened to have the LavaDerm spray on hand. We applied these oils every 15 minutes and they brought relief. The Spikenard oil is very thick and would stay on the burn and not run off. I also dropped PanAway under my tongue.

I continued this routine with the 4 oils and spray for the next few days with my leg propped up. I made my own spray with Lavender, Mineral Essence and distilled water and would use this often as well. It took a week to scab over and start to dry up. I limited my movement and was not afraid of infection because all of these oils are antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory.

My neighbor is an ER nurse and scolded me for not going to the hospital. However, a week later she couldn't believe how well it looked. Once my leg had healed, I started to use Frankincense and Elemi with coconut oil to prevent scarring.

After one year, it is hard to even see where the burns were. It may have taken a little bit longer to heal, but it was completely natural. That was my amazing experience.

1.Associated topics: skin — "Local application of frankincense essential oil may provide a non-surgical treatment alternative, with no or minimal side effect for carcinoma in situ, minimally invasive carcinoma and pre-cancerous conditions such as actinic keratosis."Link
2.Associated topics: skin — "[M]any curative properties attributed to various plants in indigenous medicine are also present in their essential oils.... These oils exert a number of general effects from the pharmacological viewpoint. When applied locally, the essential oils mix readily with skin oils, allowing these to attack the infective agents quickly and actively.... In vitro studies [were] conducted by the author on antimicrobial and anthelmintic [destructive to parasitic worms] properties of some essential oils...."Link
3.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
4.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
5.Associated topics: skin,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
6.Associated topics: skin — "Tea tree oil (TTO) (Melaleuca alternifolia) has been used recently as an effective topical application for the treatment of skin infections due to a variety of aetiological microbial agents, including mainly bacterial infections. We detail... the successful treatment with TTO of a paediatric patient with warts on her right middle finger. TTO was applied topically once daily to the lesions for 12 days, with a successful outcome, including complete re-epithelization of the infected areas. The case highlights the potential use of TTO in the treatment of common warts due to human papilloma virus."Link
7.Associated topics: skin — "Tea tree oil... has become increasingly popular as an antimicrobial for the treatment of conditions such as tinea pedis [athlete’s foot] and acne....[T]ea tree oil can reduce histamine-induced skin inflammation."Link
8.Associated topics: skin — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
