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.

Ken was making coffee yesterday and we make it with boiling water poured into the cone. He bumped it over and ended up with boiling water all over one hand and just on the finger tips of the other hand.

He was in a lot of pain, so I put some Lavender on it from another company. He said it just burned worse! (I should have known better....) So I had him wash that off and put on Young Living Lavender and he felt relief almost immediately. Used it several times and within a short time most of the bright red was gone and the pain was almost nil. Kept putting it on every couple of hours. Today he did not even mention it, so it must not be hurting at all anymore. It still amazes me after all this time.

Now, two weeks later you can barely tell he burned his hands. Most of the skin came off one hand, but it looks perfectly normal again, now that the new skin is in. After it started healing up, it itched for a while, but more Lavender took care of that too.
