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.

I was smart enough to use a pot holder when I took my frying pan of broiled steak out of the oven. But 5 minutes later, I was dumb enough to use my thumb to reposition the hot frying pan handle. As soon as I felt my thumb begin to burn I knew I was in trouble. I reached for my bottle of Young Living Essential Oils Lavender and applied it directly on the burning thumb, using the other fingers of the same hand to rub it thoroughly into my thumb. Making sure to do things that did not cause me to put my hand in water (didn't want to wash off the Lavender oil) I went on about my business.

About an hour later I noticed that the injured thumb never blistered or swelled. In fact, I don't even remember when the burning sensation disappeared. Thank God for therapeutic grade YLEOs.

The site says to share what you know, and learn what you don't. This is the first time I'm sharing what I know. However, for years I've used the site to learn what I don't. I am grateful for the group of people who had the foresight to create the website to begin with, and who diligently maintain it. Use the basic search options and put in the keyword Lavender, to see how others have used it with success. You'll be amazed at the results.
