Wow, I had a nasty burn this week, but the next morning you wouldn't have known it! We really thought the skin was going to fall off! Here's my story:

10-6-10: Trip to the emergency room tonight...burned half my hand with a cup of HOT bacon grease. Sprayed LavaDerm..poured on YLTG Lavender & iced it. Dr. was impressed & the nurse wanted to know where to get Lavender like that. I've never burned myself this bad before, but thankfully Young Living came through for me once again.

10-7-10: WHAT BURN?! Burn update-Took off the bandages & slept great! I went thru 40ml of Lavender last night & 1 bottle of LavaDerm (from the moment it happened, on the way to the hospital, sitting at the hospital, on the way home & right up till bed time) Woke up @ 4:30 & realized I wasn't in pain! Turned on the light: no red or blisters! AM: anointed w/Lavender, then Helichrysum & sealed it in w/Animal Scents ointment. Taking Longevity caps, OmegaGize, Sulfurzyme caps & MegaCal for supplementation. Did NOT fill Vicadin perscription & I'm not going to continue using that "propylene glycol" cream they gave me! It kept burning me, when I wasn't feeling any more pain! The nurse & technician said the whole emergency room smelled amazing & was relaxing everyone in trauma.

The moral of the story: It's important to have your essential oils first-aid kit fully stocked BEFORE an emergency happens. Thank God I did!!
