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.

A few days ago I was cleaning some very dirty wood (on a dog pen) that was weathered from rain, mud and who knows what else. I felt my hand become sliced. At first I didn't realize what happened. But upon examining it, I realized that it was a small splinter in the size of the palm area.

Upon pulling it out, I realized that this splinter was about 1/2 an inch long. It bled a little and I wash it with soap and water and went back out to finish my job that I had started. Within an hour, I could not bend the whole hand for it was swelling and very warm to the touch. The pain and swelling was spreading up to my wrist.

I began applying Lavender and Peppermint to the entire swollen part of the hand and wrist every hour to 2 hours for the rest of the day until bed. I started again the following day. By the second day, I was able to begin to bend the hand 1/2 way.

Fourty eight hours later, the swelling had gone down completely and I was able to use the hand completely again.

Now, over 48 hours later, I am still applying it to keep ahead of what ever it was but I have full use of the hand once again and the pain is only mild tenderness now.
