I fell on an exposed sharp metal hinge and lacerated my leg right below my knee. Before going to the hospital for the 8 matress stitches I received, I put half of a 5ml bottle of Lavender into the wound. My dad who had been a nurse in the army inquired "doesn't that sting?" No it does not was my reply. I applied Cistus oil to the area on the back of my leg-between calf & thigh. I used an ice bag on the way to the hospital. The wait in emergency was 3 hours. I was supplied with 3 more bags of ice before receiving my stitches.
I was given a booster shot to ward off tetnus along with 4 injections to numb the area those stung! The hospital staff who waited on me enjoyed the Lavender aroma. I was glad they couldn't detect the smelly Cistus oil.
Prior to getting stitched up, I applied Peace & Calming oil to my hands, it helped my anxiety over the stitches. I followed my orders not to get my knee wet for so many days and not to bend it for 3 weeks! Stitches were left in for an extra week because of how deep my wound was.
Two weeks after my injury when my antibiotic cream was used up I used my ClaraDerm spray to aid in healing twice a day. I had a very sensitive knee, which I had to take a break from work, hiking & gardening. It is good to be 100% again. I am thankful for knowledge and wisdom.
