Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

My 65 year old brother accidentally bumped his calf against the hot muffler of his son's moped. It burned a 4 inch in diameter circle of skin, making it a 3rd degree burn.

This was confirmed by his primary doctor. He chose to leave it completely open (it was 100 degree weather in August here in Michigan) and we were camping at a family reunion. He was wearing shorts, so when I first saw it four days later, it had a thick scab covering it.

I had given my brother some Lavender on previous occasions, and he was convinced of its value. He knew that I had cared for a quadriplegic friend's finger. The flesh on his finger was down to the fascia. I had related how that finger had completely resolved itself, with pink baby-skin and NO scar, taking 4-5 weeks.

I always carry a bottle of essential oil in my pocket and often it is Lavender. So I immediately told Denny he needed Lavender on that scab. I gave him the full bottle, and he soaked that scab, since he was wearing shorts, every 15 to 30 minutes with drops of full strength Lavender!

It alleviated the stiff tightness of the scab. He dripped Lavender on it 5 to 8 times daily saturating the scab. It had completely resolved 4 weeks later, with new soft pink skin and no scarring either!

His MD asked to see what brand of Lavender he had used, so I gave the doctor a bottle.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: burns — "Burn Healing Potential of Nigella sativa seed oil in rats.... Nigella sativa L. (Black cumin) has shown a broad spectrum of pharmacological effects like antipyretic [fever reducing], analgesic [pain reducing], anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial.... The present study suggests the burn wound healing action of seeds may be due to anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of major compounds in the oil."Link
2.Associated topics: burns — "Melaleuca Alternifolia [tea tree] Hydrogel... was compared with tap water as a coolant following application onto a fresh, deep, partial-thickness hot water burn.... Effective cooling of the burn wound and an increased rate of wound healing was achieved by both repeated tap water compresses and by immediate or delayed application of Melaleuca Hydrogel. Cooling is an effective means to reduce tissue damage and increase wound healing."Link
3.Associated topics: scars — "[One] method employed for wound healing is the application of lavender oil. Due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties, it is thought to prevent wound infections and to play a role in reducing pain by lowering inflammation.... Lavender oil is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, sedative, and/or antidepressant effects.... In addition to its antimicrobial effects, the anti-inflammatory analgesic properties of lavender oil have also been emphasized... The use of L. Angustifolia [lavender] is particularly recommended in chronically infected wounds due to its immune-stimulating and antimicrobial effects. There are also reports that lavender oil reduces scar tissue."Link
4.Associated topics: scars — "[A] pulverized mixture of four herbs including Agrimonia Eupatoria (A), Nelumbo Nucifera Gaertn (N), Boswellia Carteri (B) [Frankincense], and Pollen Typhae Angustifoliae (P)... was first described in Chinese canonical medicine about 2000 years ago for treatment of various trauma disorders, such as hemostasis [bleeding], anti-inflammatory, analgesia [pain], and wound healing, etc.... [W]e showed that local ANBP treatment not only significantly enhanced wound healing by relieving inflammation, increasing formation of granulation tissue, and accelerating re-epithelialization, but [it] also reduced scar formation by decreasing collagen production [and] protuberant height and volume of scars and [by] increasing collagen maturity.... [Results show that ANBP] promot[es] wound healing and alleviat[es] scar formation, which may be an effective therapy for human wounds at the earliest stage."Link
