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.


In 1998, I had a rather disastrous accident. I was melting some wax on a gas stove in my kitchen, and left the room for just a moment. When I returned, the entire top of the stove was engulfed in flames. I panicked, and grabbed a notebook to attempt to extinguish the flames, but only managed to knock over the pan of boiling wax onto my arm. I couldn't attend to it immediately because I had to put out the fire. By the time I could pay attention to it, the wax had congealed, and in pulling it off, the skin on my entire forearm came with it.

My first thought was to apply ice, then I remembered my Lavender for burns. I literally poured Lavender oil all over my arm. I then went to my Pranic Healer, who worked to energetically remove the heat from the burned area. She worked on it for hours. I continued to reapply Lavender, and then the Melrose oil blend to prevent infection. I had the Pranic Healing done again the following day, and continued the oils on a regular basis, then added Frankincense to prevent scarring.

Although, because of the seriousness of the burn, it took a few weeks to completely heal. I am left with only a small white patch by my elbow (the most difficult area to heal because of bending) to remind me of that frightening day. It was serious enough that the Pranic Healer, who does everything naturally, actually wanted me to go to a hospital, but I felt that with this open wound, I could have picked up a staph infection, so I opted for 100% natural. Without Young Living Essential Oils, I could not have done this on my own. We are blessed to have them!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: burns — "Burn Healing Potential of Nigella sativa seed oil in rats.... Nigella sativa L. (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
2.Associated topics: burns — "Melaleuca Alternifolia [tea tree] Hydrogel... was compared with tap water as a coolant following application onto a fresh, deep, partial-thickness hot water burn.... 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
3.Associated topics: scars — "[One] method employed for wound healing is the application of lavender oil. Due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties, it is thought to prevent wound infections and to play a role in reducing pain by lowering inflammation.... Lavender oil is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, sedative, and/or antidepressant effects.... In addition to its antimicrobial effects, the anti-inflammatory analgesic properties of lavender oil have also been emphasized... The use of L. Angustifolia [lavender] is particularly recommended in chronically infected wounds due to its immune-stimulating and antimicrobial effects. There are also reports that lavender oil reduces scar tissue."Link
4.Associated topics: scars — "[A] pulverized mixture of four herbs including Agrimonia Eupatoria (A), Nelumbo Nucifera Gaertn (N), Boswellia Carteri (B) [Frankincense], and Pollen Typhae Angustifoliae (P)... was first described in Chinese canonical medicine about 2000 years ago for treatment of various trauma disorders, such as hemostasis [bleeding], anti-inflammatory, analgesia [pain], and wound healing, etc.... [W]e showed that local ANBP treatment not only significantly enhanced wound healing by relieving inflammation, increasing formation of granulation tissue, and accelerating re-epithelialization, but [it] also reduced scar formation by decreasing collagen production [and] protuberant height and volume of scars and [by] increasing collagen maturity.... [Results show that ANBP] promot[es] wound healing and alleviat[es] scar formation, which may be an effective therapy for human wounds at the earliest stage."Link
