Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

My son cut his hand badly when the chainsaw he was using kicked back out of his hand and came down on the back of his hand. When he arrived at the house the wound was bleeding profusely.

I uncorked the stopper from a bottle of Helichrysum oil and poured it into the wound, wrapped it in a couple of tea towels and headed for the closest Emergency Centre. When the triarge nurse inspected the wound she was astounded to find that it was not bleeding and left it untouched until the Doctor arrived. Fortunately there was no tendon or nerve damage, although significant flesh trauma. The blade had taken a piece about 10mm wide out of the fleshy pad of his palm.

The wound was stitched with many internal and external stitches. We supported healing with Helichrysum, Melrose, Cypress, copiaba, Balsam Fir and other oils. The wound has healed beautifully without infection, and has "filled in" the missing 10mm of flesh inspite of being stitched closed. He was using his hand a little again after a few days and as back at work 1 week after the accident.

Additional keyword(s) assigned by the editor: wound, healing, bleeding, copiaba.
