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.

Relaxing one evening with a good friend, her spouse came home and joined us. She showed her husband the burn that was on her wrist that was then two days old. He was wondering how it was doing when she showed him.

It didn't look good. It looked as if it hadn't started closing over with a scab at all in that time. I asked if she'd be willing to give some Lavender oil a try and she agreed. She applied a drop or two of the oil to the burn. Less than one hour later all the red inflamed tissue around the acute burn area had returned to normal skin color.

The acute burn area where the curling iron had touched the skin had started to dry out and was taking on the healthy, darker, scabbed over appearance. Before the oil it looked fresh and pink.

I checked back with them two days later to learn the burn was nearly 90% better and almost completely gone. They were blown away and wanted to get a bottle to keep around the house. I was kicking myself for not taking before and after pictures.

The results were dramatic!

(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

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
