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.

There are so many testimonials for Lavender oil and burns. I'm just adding another. Last weekend when I was working on my glass fusion project, I burned my finger on hot glass I just bent. I was just too excited with my work I completely forgot that the glass would be hot!

Since I had my oils with me and knew Gattefoss's story and that others successfully used Lavender on burns, I immediately put a drop on my stinging finger that looks like it was about to blister soon.

It took a few minutes for the pain to dissipate so I just put another drop and continued on my work. I forgot about it since the pain disappeared and by the end of the day, there was no blistering nor pain. It was clearing up quite nicely.

Oh, one of my classmates cut herself with glass. I put a drop of Lavender on her finger to help.

I'm so glad I had my oils with me and never are without them.

Effective cooling of the burn wound and an increased rate of wound healing was achieved by both repeated tap water compresses and by immediate or delayed application of Melaleuca Hydrogel. Cooling is an effective means to reduce tissue damage and increase wound healing."Link
