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.

My 21 month old has bumped her head now twice this week, walking is new to her. And these were large bumps. I heard that Helichrysum was a good oil for bruising. On the first one I put it on immediately, the lump went down and there was a very faint sign of a bruise afterwards.

The second one we were not able to put it on till about a hour later, and it was still a very large lump, about the size of a quarter and very purple at this point.

I put the oil on and virtually watched the lump disappear again, and I reapplied it 3 more times and could not believe that the bruise was gone the next day. My husband was so amazed at this one.

This is a must have oil with little ones in the house!
