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!
