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.

When on a recent family vacation, we had the pleasure of meeting another family. With the excitement of finally arriving to their vacation destination, their mother forgot to put sunscreen on their children, ages 10 and 8.

The following morning, I had asked the mother, where their children were. She had said they were both very sick and didn't want to go out into the sun.

I immediately went to the room with their mother to see that they had a terrible case of sunburn/sun poisoning. They were both so sick.

Not ever hearing of essential oils before, I offered to spray them down with LavaDerm as much as they needed it. I recommended they rest out of the sun for at least half of the day as I kept applying the LavaDerm every 2 hours or so.

By 2 pm that day, both children were able to at least come out of the room, stay in the shade as they felt much better. I continued throughout the rest of the day to apply LavaDerm to both of the children.

Both the parents and children could not thank me enough for what I had done for them, as they were ready to see the physician on site at our resort. Those kids were really sick!

Thanks LavaDerm!

1.Associated topics: sunburn — "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: sunburn — "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
