Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I was raking out in the front yard today for about two hours. My hands were getting sore after the first 15 mintues - I was using a heavy metal rake with a thick wooden handle. By the time I was done, I knew I had to put something on my hands. I went inside and washed my hands with soap and water, and the lukewarm water felt like fire on my hands. I could see the super red areas where blisters were in the beginning stages. Around my two rings and of course my thumb crevice.

I applied some Lavender to the entire hand area first, then followed it with the Peppermint hoping that magical cooling sensation would help get rid of the "heat" in my hands. I reapplied just the Peppermint about an hour later to the remaining sore areas but noticed the dark red areas had really lightened up.

Finally I reapplied Lavender at the end of the evening. My hands have no more redness, although still a touch on the sore side. I see absolutely no evidence of blistering, which in itself is a miracle. I ALWAYS get blisters after handling tools like that for much shorter periods of time, my hands just aren't used to it.

I am hoping to put the final application of Lavender on in the morning to ward off any possible issues that may arise from the general soreness that may be left.

Unbelieveable - I've never had anything work like this with me before - thank God for these oils!!
