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.


A few months ago, my son was visiting a friend about 250 miles away. They were going to grill their lunch. My son was using lighter fluid to start the coals. Unaware, a wind blew some of the fluid onto his hand, and when he went to light it, he received 3rd degree burns on the back of his left hand. A thick layer of skin had peeled off when he tried to put out the fire by using his right hand. He went to the hospital for treatment. About 30 hours later he came home. He didn't let us know what happened until he got home.

Immediately I gave him LavaDerm to cool the burn, as well as Lavender to help in the healing process. He also used some of the cream the hospital gave him. He kept using LavaDerm until the pain stopped, and the Lavender until the healing was complete.

Today you would have to look very closely to even know that he was burned. There are just a few tiny speckles of scar tissue. He also slept like a baby because of the Lavender he was using on his hand, an added plus, especially since it was quite painful at first.
