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. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

In 2006, as I was pouring hot water into a mug from a new kettle that had just boiled on the stove, the lid came off the kettle and a rush of steam burned the palm of my hand and wrist, covering an area of about 2 inches by 1 inch. The pain was very intense, so much so, that I could feel a pain and aching in my baby finger and fourth finger and it hurt to close my hand.

I immediately grabbed the 'LavaDerm' and sprayed it on, making my skin feel a bit cooler, then I found my Lavender oil and applied 2 drops, gently rubbing it in. The heat and the pain was still very intense, so I placed my hand over a bag of frozen peas hoping this would intensify the action of the Lavender oil.

The pain returned after a few minutes, so I repeated the process with 'Lavenderm' and Lavender oil and then placed my hand back on the bag of frozen peas. I repeated this process using 'Lavenderm' and Lavender oil, every 5 minutes for the next 2 hours, as the pain continued to be very strong, spreading up to my fingers. I noticed that the size of the burn was diminishing, and one area looked like a flat blister. I was still in so much pain that I was beginning to wonder how I would be able to sleep through the night!

At 6:00 p.m., just about 2 hours later, I had to go to my office downstairs to do some work, and as I went downstairs, I carried the Lavender oil and the frozen peas, applied the oil one more time and started working. Suddenly, the pain was gone!!!

I noticed that the skin that had been burned was a light pink, and looked a bit dry. (Most of us know that some of the oils can dry out skin). I continued to work for about 15 minutes, and the pain did not return, although I did have a very minor twinge. This morning, a small area of my skin is still slightly pink, my skin is fine, and no longer dry, and I have absolutely no pain! I am so grateful for these oils!!
