Buyer beware.

I had such an amazing experience with my Lavender yesterday that I thought I'd share. I confess that I've never seen anything work so fast. So here's my story.

My six year old daughter was outside playing with the boy next door when she accidentally hit him in the eye with a whiffle bat! With his mom's permission, my husband gave him some Hyland's Bumps 'N Bruises (yes, we still do some herbs) while I got my oils. I checked my desk reference and all I had from the list was Lavender. When I got back to the kids, Jacob's eye was swelling shut. It was an angry red and I was sure it would be black and purple. You could actually see the outline of that darned bat! I asked him if he'd let me put the Lavender around his eye. He said he was fine and didn't want it. I asked him if he'd prefer his mom to put it on and he agreed. She gently rubbed just one or two drops (neat) underneath the eye and we put the icepack back on it to reduce swelling.

After only five minutes, we checked the eye and the swelling was going down. Ten minutes later, you could barely see where he'd been hit. Not only was the swelling down but the red mark was completely gone. Today, you can't tell that this big kid got beat up by my little girl. :-) He is very grateful for the Lavender and his mom was totally amazed. My husband later told me that that was my best magic trick yet. :-) Needless to say, I'm pretty impressed with myself and of course Young Living oils. Nothing beats 'em.
