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.


I cut my pointer finger pad with a serrated knife while opening a box...I felt it scrape the bone. I was alone and immediately applied pressure to the bleeding finger. I found my Lavender oil and poured it directly in the wound and then reapplied pressure. The pain was gone in that instant. Every few minutes I'd remove the pressure and pour in more Lavender and after about 4 applications...the bleeding had stopped and no pain.

I am a massage therapist and thought I would not be working for a while! This cut was very deep and most would have gone for stitches. The thought of that was just more than I could imagine so kept up the Lavender oil trx every few hours. I had wrapped it loosely and when I'd remove the bandage to reapply the Lavender was amazed to see it healing rapidly from the inside out. By day 3, I was back at work and there was just a thin line where the deep cut had been and no pain ever after the first application. Soon you couldn't even see the scar. Twice I applied it to my grandchildren who got burns and instant pain relief and no blistering in either case...truly a miracle oil. I have used most of the YLO for over 12 years now and have many such testimonies of them but these are the most dramatic in my experience.
