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.


I accidentally splashed boiling water on my left eye, forehead and cheek. Thankfully, my eyeglasses protected the eyeball itself but the surrounding delicate skin was assaulted.

To sooth and support my integumentary system I immediately applied Lavender oil liberally, repeating regularly for about an hour. This application immediately reduced my pain response.

In the picture (contact me if you would like a copy) you can see only slight redness on my lower eyelid as I must not have applied the oil close enough during subsequent applications as not to get the oil in my eye again.

However, you can see the 1/2 inch strip of nasty blistering from the severe temperature trauma where I didn't apply the Lavender over far enough.

I began applying Lavender in a broader area after discovering my error several hours later.
