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.

One Thursday morning a 78 year old client, who has spent over 50 years in a wheelchair, called: 'I think I scalded myself. Maybe you should put some oils on it.' She is a 3 minute fast walk from my home.

I grabbed the LavaDerm and sprinted over as fast as I could. She was dressed in heavy cotton sweats. It was probably 8 minutes from the time of the actual spilling of the scalding milk until I saw the damage. Obviously a case for medical attention.

However, as she still lived at home with the help of scheduled Home Care; she was fearful they would take away her independent privileges and place her in Long Term Care. So it was "we and the oils" or nothing.

LavaDerm was sprayed on immediately. Within minutes she reported the painfulness had subsided. The extent of the wounds: One was approximately 1" x 6" on the inner thigh of the left leg; On the right leg there was a 1" circle and several splatters of varying sizes. The 2 larger burns were very deep. Obviously a case for skin grafting.

The first 3 days we used LavaDerm and Lavender Oil covered with Rose Ointment 3 or 4 times a day. As bandages and tape seemed to inflame and blister the surrounding skin, we used a pair of silk, long legged underwear as a covering during the day. Of course it would stick to the area and had to be removed carefully and washed in Thieves Household Cleaner each evening. At night, we left the area open, and the covers raised.

At one point, she suggested we use something called 'Second Skin' from the pharmacy. Within a couple of hours the burn was very inflamed and infected. We discarded that thought very quickly, and now had a chemical burn to deal with as well.

For one week, we kept the burns well lubricated with Lavender, and Rose Ointment. The small wounds were recovering nicely. However, the large ones, though very clean and healthy looking were not getting any smaller. How could we skin graft without surgery?

On day 8, her ART Skin Care System came in the mail from Young Living. I was able to use the Night Reconstructor on the burns. Later, reading the information, it was exactly what we needed in a dark area of the body.

About two hours later I returned to see what was happening. A MIRACLE! It was as if a light film of clear wrap had been placed over the burns. I was truly amazed!

For the next 2 weeks ART Night Reconstructor was put on the burns both morning and night, along with Lavender and Rose Ointment [mostly the Rose Ointment was used to protect the burns from the cloth and make it easier to remove the long johns]. The area became slightly more painful as the new skin and nerves regenerated and filled in the space.

After 3 weeks, she decided she did not require my help now, and continued putting the Night Reconstructor on both morning and night. Every second day at bedtime, I would check in to be sure it was continuing to get better, which it was. In less than 6 weeks, the burn had totally subsided, and only brownish on the skin as a very small scar.

The ART Skin Care System is truly amazing. Give it a try, and you will LOVE it.

1.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
2.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
