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.

First of all, thank you to Heavenly Father for Gary Young and thanks to the people who began this website for us.

While canning strawberry jam, I burned my arm. I had just removed a pot from the front right burner and turned the burner off. I laid my right arm on the burner while reaching toward a knob that controlled the back burner. (Our knobs are located on the right side of the stove) I didn't feel like I had time to fuss over a burn because logically I thought, "I can't stop canning NOW."

But about 3-5 minutes later I decided that the discomfort was too distracting and that I should just stop for a minute and put essential oils on it. I knew the oils would work immediately so I justified that I should sacrifice one minute now to take care of the burn rather than wait three or four hours until I finished canning.

The burn was about three inches long and one inch wide. I had heard in a training tape that Idaho Balsam Fir Essential Oil is good for many of the same things Lavender oil is used for, including burns.

I let the Idaho Balsam Fir oil drip all over the burn, but it didn't help with the discomfort. I had heard on another tape (or did I read it in the essential oils reference book that Peppermint oil is also good for burns but NOT to apply it directly on or in the burn. So I fingered Peppermint oil around the perimeter of the burn and went back to canning.

I totally forgot about the burn until a week later at church when a woman was showing us a burn on her lower arm that covered most of the top and bottom of the lower arm. Her burn cream wasn't working. I began lifting my right arm to show her my burn and it wasn't there.

I lifted my left arm and it wasn't there either. I know I burned my right arm because the burner knobs are on the right side of the stove and I am right handed. I was amazed that it only took one application to eliminate the effects of the burn.

1.Associated topics: burns — "Burn Healing Potential of Nigella sativa seed oil in rats.... Nigella sativa L. (Black cumin) has shown a broad spectrum of pharmacological effects like antipyretic [fever reducing], analgesic [pain reducing], anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial.... The present study suggests the burn wound healing action of seeds may be due to anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of major compounds in the oil."Link
2.Associated topics: burns — "Melaleuca Alternifolia [tea tree] Hydrogel... was compared with tap water as a coolant following application onto a fresh, deep, partial-thickness hot water burn.... 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
