I recently burnt my ring finger on my right hand, with boiling water at work. I had incorrectly selected the hot instead of the cold tap, and when I realised my mistake, jerked my hand away, but the flow of water seared down the ring finger. Within seconds, my finger was red and throbbing with pain.
By the time I got up the stairs and back to my desk (where my bag with my oils were) my finger had swelled, and just above the nail, was turning a blueish colour. When I tumbled the bottles of oil onto my desk, my "on hand collection" consisted of Peppermint, Lemon, Thieves & Palo Santo. My instict went with the Palo Santo, and within 10 seconds, the throbbing pain had stopped. Within 30 seconds, the redness had dissipated, and the blueish area had reduced to a line. After about 20 minutes, the wselling was down completely.
After an hour, the throbbing came back, and I applied another generous amount of Palo Santo. Two hours later the 3rd (it was only stinging at this stage) and that evening, before bed, I rubbed another layer of oil on, for good measure. The next morning, there was NO blistering, odd colours, or pain. What a marvelous oil!
