I got to see the difference Lavender makes!

Recently I had a more severe burn as coconut oil popped out of a sizzling frying pan and landed on my hand on the soft flesh between my thumb and forefinger. I could tell it was a deep burn and I wasn't sure the Lavender would take care of it. I applied Lavender and had to keep reapplying it, as the pain was intense. I even applied it the next day.

Then on the 2nd day after the burn, I noticed a little blister higher up on my thumb. I had not even felt pain there at the time of the burn, so hadn't applied the oil there. While I wouldn't choose to have a blister, it was so fun to see how effective the Lavender was, as the pain was already gone from the area that was deeply burned with no evidence of a burn.

I have used Lavender for so many burns over the years and I am always impressed. Whether burned in the kitchen, on the iron or curling iron, or by the sun, Lavender always brings relief. I used to always get little blisters that would turn to scabs and slowly heal. Now if I get a burn, I usually apply the Lavender one time and never think about it again as the pain goes away and there's no blister.
