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.

Today I had the misfortune of handling a very 'hot' tortilla when the pocket of steam within it 'escaped' right onto my index finger. I rushed for the same bottle of Lavendula Angustifolia (Gary's French Lavender oil)that I always run for when I get a burn. Yet THIS time.. it continued hurting, in fact, it actually even began feeling MORE sensitive to heat of any sort. I must admit, this was 'rare', for I'd always paid the ultimate 'price' to make sure all my customers new about and used Gary's Lavender oil for burns of all kinds.

And so... I pondered this, re-applied the Lavender, same bottle~ several more times. No luck. Well, in truth, I 'am' able to "Co"-Channel in a way that helps myself and others to know which-what-why-how much-oil to use for their particular body type and exact need. So I beamed up to God and said, "Hey God~!! What am I not 'getting' here?" Lo and behold, I hear a very resolute voice saying, "Cypress".

At that time, I was away from my oil case. Yet upon returning home, I hurried to apply that one precious oil. Ahhhhh~ at long last. And so I asked, "God, how come the usual Lavender oil treatment did not work with this one? And He merely said, "Think, dear one, how this one was different~(!) in that it was a 'water-inflicted', rather than via 'scortch'". (He was gently refering to my usual hot-pan burns or sunburn, yet even chemical burns). Further, He reminded me how "Cypress trees are by far more 'water-borne', than most other species. They therefore have a mechanism that treats 'abject ills' via the 'water way'." So He left me to ponder that. And now, I leave this to you, as well~!

And yes... the pain did stop after applying the Cypress Oil, and after an hour, all redness and tenderness simply abated.
