1. Eczema- In an update on my daughters is gone. I had mixed 1/2 a cup of olive oil with a few drops of Lavender on the opposite sides of her elbow and backs of her legs. Both sites have healed nicely with minimal discoloration and are smooth and not itchy.

2. Skin Abrasion- Same daughter "wiped-out" as she calls it on the concrete and skinned her elbow badly on her way to school almost a week ago. When she came home and showed me her elbow I took off the bandage and applied Lavender to the whole area. The pain and stinging went right away (which was a relief to her, because as she bent her elbow it throbbed with pain). The healing process was so much quicker than anything I've ever seen-and with four children who are all tree climbers and very active, I've seen lots of "Boo Boos"! Today it's been almost a week and the elbow looks so good and the skin is healing nicely. We've been applying the Lavender full strength to it at first a few times a day as needed for pain, and now only once- looks like there won't be any scarring, which is a plus.

3. Skin irritation/acne- OK This one is a personal experience... I did a BIG no no and am paying for it.... my daughter and husband had birthdays this weekend, and I drank a few sodas. I completely break out when I drink soda, and the acne around my chin was so irritated it was horrible and itchy. One place even bled, after the scab came off when I was washing my face with a cloth. I applied Lavender after remembering a testimony here about acne and Lavender and well also thinking about my daughter's success with Lavender. The black scabbed area has gone away within a few hours, I just happened to walk by a mirror and notice. Also, the tenderness of the break-out is almost completely gone and it seems to be went from this morning from bright red and raw looking to now lightly pink and clearning up. Now I applied a few drops night before last, yesterday morning, last night, and now I am doing another application. I wish I would have remembered to take before and after pictures. I'll have to remember it for the future with skin irritations or abrassions.
