Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions.

I was so excited at having received my very first shipment of oils; Oregano, Thieves and Lavender. I had just opened them and was experimenting with a home-made wooden case to keep them in when I inadvertently caught the tuft of my little finger between the heavy lid and the body of the case. OUCH! It was SO painful and already I could see the purpleness of a blood blister forming; from experience I knew I was in for about 3 days of pain and a month or more of ugly bruise; it was a severe pinch.

I hollered into the kitchen for my husband, who happened to be fixing himself a cold drink, and asked him to "Please bring me an ice cube, immediately, if not sooner!" He did so, and I applied to my finger. It caused more pain and I could stand it only about 30 seconds before I realized I probably had the solution in my lap.

I had heard that, if you can only afford one oil, order Lavender, because it has been used by many people to help so many different injuries. So I opened it and put a drop on my blood blister. In THREE SECONDS I had no more pain. As I examined my finger curiously, my jaw dropped and I exclaimed to my husband that "I've just witnessed a miracle! Not only is there no more pain, I can literally see the bruise going away!"

Now, I transcribe medical reports for a living, and when I injured myself, I was not looking forward to pounding the "A" key on my keyboard for the next few days, but after using the Lavender, I was able to work a 10-hour shift the very next day with NO PAIN and NO BLISTER.

Frankly, I'm still in awe, but I'll never forget to use Lavender!
