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've tried a drop of Young Living Lavender oil on my own minor burns from time to time and have always been amazed and pleased with the results: it immediately reverses the swelling/blistering response and neutralizes the burn within hours. You do have to be consistent and apply the oil immediately and then periodically throughout the first hours following the burn.

This summer my two year old son had the unfortunate opportunity to put Lavender to the test. My husband was burning twigs in our fire pit out back while our boys ran around with no shoes on (yes, a dumb recipe for disaster!) Of course, when he was not watching, the little one stepped onto hot embers with one foot.

My husband rushed him into the house, screaming and crying. I immediately plunged his foot into cold water in the bath tub, while I had my husband grab the Lavender. I blotted off the water and just doused his little foot with Lavender. He laid on the sofa for that afternoon, resting his foot but comfortable. There were red, round marks along the outside edge of his tender little foot and a couple on the ball of the foot. Again, I applied Lavender, just a few drops, throughout the evening and the next morning. He never blistered, and that next day easily allowed me to put a sock and shoe on him. He ran around like always, without any sign of distress or pain.

The marks faded within a few days--no scarring! He still talks about "stepping on the fire pit", but you would never know it to look at his foot. I will NEVER be without Young Living Lavender in my home. We know also that this anti-inflammatory property works for allergies, sinusitis, laryngitis, eczema, etc., etc. Great stuff!!
