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.

On Canadian Boxing Day, December 26, I visited a friend for an afternoon gathering. As I was leaving I went to find my handbag, moved from the living room where I'd left it. I spied it in my hostess's bedroom and walked towards it. It was then I discovered that there is an internal step inside the bedroom door, up to the rest of the room. I tripped, smashing the toes on both feet against the step and falling onto the bed. The second toe on my right foot was very sore.

Overnight it turned purple and black, was very swollen, rock-hard, and painful. I applied Lavender, Wintergreen and Peace & Calming, the last to my wrists as I was very unsettled by the fall. I continued with the Lavender and the swelling had largely subsided after 2 days, enough that I could put closed shoes on to visit friends and feel no discomfort. The bruising disappeared after 3 days and now, 6 days later, my toe is back to normal, although it still hurts if I put any pressure on it when flexing the foot as I take a step.

Yay for Lavender. Yay for all these terrific oils!
