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.

While hanging a picture I smashed my left index finger with the hammer and I was hammering very hard. I immediatly applied an ice cube to stop the throbbing, swelling, and bruising. The ice only intensified the discomfort so bad that after about a minute I gave up.

Then I tried Lavender Essential Oil. I only applied a drop, rubbed it on the nail and the pad of my finger and almost immediately the discomfort was gone. Here's the best part though. I was dreading the bruised, black nail and the sensitivity that goes along with that, but I had nothing -- no mark on my nail, no bruising, no tenderness, no throbbing, nothing. The next day I couldn't even tell I had smashed my finger with the hammer.

I can't remember but I may have applied one more drop of Lavender that night. Still, two drops of Lavender and my finger was great the next day!
