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.

While camping in 2007 my son was making smores and his marshmallow was flaming. Just as I was about to tell him don't wave it - he did and burning sugar splattered all over his other arm.

We immediately scraped off all the sugar we could and applied Lavender oil - I just poured it over his arm, and then stuck his arm in the cooler of ice for a few minutes.

I then took him to the Emergency Room and continued to apply drops of Lavender to all the blisters every few minutes. Thankfully we didn't have to sit too long and they gave us Silvadene ointment and told me not use oil - which I of course ignored as I knew they were thinking olive oil type oil vs essential oils.

We continued to apply the Silvadene and Lavender for the next few days. He didn't have any scaring and today you can't even tell where he was burned! I would still use the Silvadene or colloidal silver with the Lavender for bad burns but we keep Lavender on hand in the kitchen and a bottle of pure aloe juice and Lavender in the fridge now! Good stuff!!!
