On Saturday morning, I went over to my mother's place to help her with the garden. After I arrived, I decided to cut her lawn and when finishing the job, I tried to shake off the grass blades that stick to the underside of the mower. I shook the mower and tapped it on the ground when I accidentally knocked off the air filter. I looked at the airfilter trying to determine exactly where it came from. As I began to reinstall this little piece, I placed my thumb and finger on the motor not thinking how hot it could be to brace the machine. Instantly, my reflex reaction was to put back my hand because the part of the machine that I touched was very hot. My finger and thumb burned. Immediately, I went into the house and I found my mom's bottle of Lavender and I put a drop on each finger.
I returned back to finish the job in the garden and I did not even think about my finger and thumb burn until the next day. Not only did the Lavender oil eliminate to sting and burning sensation, but the next day, I had a difficult time to see where the burn marks were.
