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.

I was chopping veggies one morning and cut the tip of my index finger pretty deeply. About half-an-inch's worth of skin was missing, it hurt terribly, and the bleeding was profuse.

After keeping it elevated, applying direct pressure with a towel for at least 20 minutes, and experiencing a few waves of dizziness and nausea, the bleeding was not stopping. Then I remembered all the times I've heard that Helichrysum will stop bleeding. I happened to have a small amount left that I won at a party over a year ago.

I put a drop of it as close to the skin and cut as I could get it, and LOW AND BEHOLD, before my very eyes and within 5 seconds, the bleeding stopped completely. It stung like crazy! But I left it alone for a few minutes, then dabbed the blood away that had been sitting on the top. I could see that it was, indeed, no longer bleeding. I was pretty Wowed!

I feel that if i hadn't had that Helichrysum around, I would had been laid up for most of the day- it's hard to do things with a bleeding finger! But i was able to bandage it up not long after that, and get back in the game. Helichrysum definitely came to my rescue :-)

Also, remember that you can TAKE IT INTERNALLY!! It will stop internal bleeding. I think this is an oil more people should be aware of!
