I was making bacon. I have a griddle and I was pushing the hot oil into the drain hole with a scraper. I had the scraper at an angel that ended up with me putting my middle finger into the hot oil. It was long enough for a burn.

I put it under cold water and used an ice pack for a little while. Then I put lavender oil directly on the burn. It stung tremendously, but I left the oil on. After about 1/2 hour it stopped hurting.

I continued to put oil on for the next 3-4 days. The burn never blistered, never puffed up. I don't even have a scar now.
