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.

I was pulling a dish out of the oven and my left hand right below my thumb hit the top oven burner. Right away it looked like crispy bacon. I went and ran cold water on it. That didn't seem to do anything. So I remembered that LavaDerm was good to put on a burn.

I sprayed LavaDerm. Waited a few minutes and then placed 2 drops Lavender oil on it. Waited about 15 minutes and put it under cold water again then did the application of LavaDerm and Lavender again.

I did this every 15 minutes for the next 2 hours. Then I decided to look up on the Internet what to use for a burn as it looked really bad. I read to put the Melrose oil blend for infection, the Purification oil blend for cleaning, LavaDerm for keeping cool, Lavender for soothing and Frankincense oil for no scars.

Within 15 minutes of applying 1 drop of Melrose and a few minutes later 1 drop of Purification the burn started to feel so much better.

For the next couple days I would put 1 drop of Melrose, wait a few minutes then put 1 drop of Purification and 5-10 minutes later Lavender. If it started to feel hot or hurt I sprayed LavaDerm. I would do this a few times a day.

After it started to feel itchy and the scabs started coming off, I started putting Frankincense on it and almost the whole area that was burned improved with no scarring.

I have a tiny little mark that is so small you wouldn't even know it was a burn mark.

Supporting Scientific Studies
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
3.Associated topics: scar-tissue — "[One] method employed for wound healing is the application of lavender oil. Due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties, it is thought to prevent wound infections and to play a role in reducing pain by lowering inflammation.... Lavender oil is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, sedative, and/or antidepressant effects.... In addition to its antimicrobial effects, the anti-inflammatory analgesic properties of lavender oil have also been emphasized... The use of L. Angustifolia [lavender] is particularly recommended in chronically infected wounds due to its immune-stimulating and antimicrobial effects. There are also reports that lavender oil reduces scar tissue."Link
4.Associated topics: scar-tissue — "[A] pulverized mixture of four herbs including Agrimonia Eupatoria (A), Nelumbo Nucifera Gaertn (N), Boswellia Carteri (B) [Frankincense], and Pollen Typhae Angustifoliae (P)... was first described in Chinese canonical medicine about 2000 years ago for treatment of various trauma disorders, such as hemostasis [bleeding], anti-inflammatory, analgesia [pain], and wound healing, etc.... [W]e showed that local ANBP treatment not only significantly enhanced wound healing by relieving inflammation, increasing formation of granulation tissue, and accelerating re-epithelialization, but [it] also reduced scar formation by decreasing collagen production [and] protuberant height and volume of scars and [by] increasing collagen maturity.... [Results show that ANBP] promot[es] wound healing and alleviat[es] scar formation, which may be an effective therapy for human wounds at the earliest stage."Link
