In 2009 I underwent two major life changing events. The first was being served divorce papers after being married for over 20 years and the second days later when I was involved in a very serious vehicle accident. The semi i was driving went into the ditch and flipped on ist's side trapping me inside. Fortunately i was wearing a seat belt which suspended me in the cab and secondly was i was pulled out thru the windshield with only one small scrape/cut; but with broken bones and major bruising.
When the truck flipped on it's side the shoulder strap popped my left shoulder out; i then hit the steering wheel breaking my collor bone in 2 places and then took the gear shift in the ribs on the left side breaking 2; bruising and cracking a few more. I was very lucky with just these injuries as after the investigation; i was told that by the debris i should have been much worse.
I spent 22 hours in the emergency room on a flat board and a kneck brace. The only thing i had with me was the Lavender oil. I had a minor concussion and was incoherent; but when the doctor asked what this was i managed to tell him and asked him to put some on my forehead, neck, collarbone, and rib areas. They continually tried to give me advil, tylenol etc; but i refused.
Later that night as i seem to come more alert; they removed the kneck brace and the backboard. I did not show any signs of furthure complications.
I continued to use the Lavender; all my other oils were in my backpack that was in the truck. After a few hours passed, the pain seemed to be moderate and much more tolerable as I applied some around my nose.
I was supposed to stay in the hospital for another day; but didn't. I managed to get up and dressed with some help and walked out of the hospital.
At home i used Lemon, Thieves and Purification. This helped me sleep throught the night. A the following day I went to Carla Green (my sister's) for almost a week and supplimented the oils with acupuncture. By day 3 after the accident i could remove the arm brace and was able to move my arm about 50%. Within a week i had almost full movement and the bruising was fading quickly.
I did this all with no pain killers; and when i visted my doctor he couldn't believe how fast i had healed by just using essential oils.
The seatbelt did save my life; but also compunded the injuries i sustained.
To date i continue to use a variety of oils; douglas fir, Rose and Thieves. I also use Lemon in my difuser daily all of which has helped me with not only the physical injuries from the accident; but the emotional injuries inccurred that were related to the accident.
