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.


After my son's burn I was hooked on Lavender. I have since mixed equal parts of Helichrysum, Lavender, and V-6 into an empty Lavender bottle. I dilute with V-6 because I have small children and would like to avoid any reactions to the strength of straight oils. This blend I have used on various scrapes, cuts, and slivers that are brought to my attention by my four kids and husband. With the slivers I dropped on one drop so I could get the slivers out and another after they were out to take away the redness. I am in awe every time I use Lavender. I do use straight Lavender on my eczema, but I use the blend on my 2 yearold's eczema. Both are a great deal less itchy and present than what they were before I tried oils.
